American Horror Story: Freak Show (2014-2015)

When the fourth season of American Horror Story was announced, fans were freaking ;-) out about the possibilities Freak Show could be.  The opening credit sequence, the best of the series so far IMO, was a sure sign the audience was in for a wild carnival ride.  The story went a bit off the rails toward the end but was entertaining nonetheless.  Finn Wittrock stands out playing the mentally unstable Dandy and Jessica Lange continues to captivate as showrunner Elsa Mars.  

American Horror Story: Freak Show was filmed in New Orleans, LA

Location: The Freak Show
Address: Off River Road & Vincent Lane, New Orleans, LA

This is not the exact spot of the freak show, but this was in this general area.  The area seen below is beyond some private property...

Location: Mott Manor
Address: 7 Bamboo Road, New Orleans, LA  Longue Vue House & Gardens

Unfortunately I just missed a tour departure and couldn't stay for the next one.  They didn't let you in the mansion without a guide so I didn't get a chance to see the dining room or Dandy's playroom.  But I was able to get a shot of the staircase and another shot of a room that was not seen on the show through windows...

Even though I didn't get inside, the tour of the grounds was worth the trip alone...  

Episode 1 "Monsters Among Us"

Location: Elsa's Diner
Address: 626 S Carrollton Avenue, New Orleans, LA  Camellia Grill

I was hoping to grab lunch at The Camellia Grill but the line was freakin' ;-) out the door.  I ended up eating at The Frostop Diner from Coven instead.  I did snap a shot of the inside though...

Episode 5 "Pink Cupckakes"

Location: The Gay Bar
Address: 4841 Tchoupitloulas Street, New Orleans, LA F&M Patio Bar

Since I got there at 11am, it was not open yet, but I was able to get a shot of the inside through a small window on the front door...
