During his 20 years at Graceland, Elvis Presley allowed his inner circle to enjoy the mansion, however, they would have to be personally invited upstairs to his private space. The King was very protective of his privacy, having a wall with one-way mirrors installed on the first-floor landing, which can be seen from the bottom of the main stairs on the tour today. Following his death in 1977, his daughter Lisa Marie made sure that Graceland’s upstairs would not be open to public viewing, out of respect for her father, when it opened as a museum 40 years ago.
Nevertheless, Memphis Mafia members who lived alongside Elvis and Lisa Marie have shared memories of what it was like upstairs at Graceland back in the Seventies.
Up there, Elvis had his master bedroom with a huge oversized bed and multiple TVs. He’d keep the room ice cold just as he liked it and would sleep through the day.
Next door was his ensuite bathroom where he tragically died of a heart attack on August 16, 1977 at the age of just 42.
Also upstairs was Elvis’ office. The King’s desk from that room is currently on display as part of the tour downstairs. There was also another bathroom, his and his girlfriend’s dressing rooms and, of course, Lisa Marie’s childhood bedroom.
