What to do in Louisville, KY?
 
We flew some folks in for the Derby. I'm in Louisville until Sunday. What do you suggest I do to bide my time? I'd like to go to a bourbon distillery, (or two or ten) any close by that you'd suggest?

Bardstown, Kentucky - Bourbon Capital of the World

http://www.bardstowntourism.com/

Less than an hour drive from Louisville.

I second that!

Fourth Street Live -> http://www.4thstlive.com/

Jim Beam is about 30 minutes south in Clermont... And yeah, Bardstown also if you want a longer drive.

The skatepark also kicks major ass, if you're into that sort of thing...

How 'bout some good places to eat? (And/or drink!)

Ron G 05-01-08 06:14 PM

Gotta go with bourbon.

Even casual restaurants serve bourbon flights.

Two recommendations: Noah's Mill and Pappy Van Winkle's Private Reserve.

As a native of the area, I'll give you a few choices that are close to the downtown area:

Bluegrass Brewing Company - located near Broadway and 4th Street, almost across from the Brown Hotel - amazing selections of brews, homemade and otherwise, and some good eats too.

Ramsi's Cafe on the World - An unusual assortment of world tastes, mixed together into unique and wonderful creations. I recommend the East meets South Fajias and the Empress Chicken.

Bristol Bar and Grille - Great place if you want a good steak.

Browning's - Located in the Louisville Bats' ballpark on 401 E. Main Street; good food, but great microbrew.

Bourbons Bistro - very pricey, but the food is excellent, and there are more Burbons than you could imagine to select from.

You can also check out Louisville Hot Bytes for more places to eat.

For tourist stuff, there's always the Louisville Slugger Museum; 4th Street Live (which is OK IMO); the Bardstown Rd. area (You must visit Ear X-Tacy); the Kentucky Derby Museum; the Riverwalk area, etc.

Hope you enjoy your time here!

You've got to check out the cheerleaders.

Definately not safe for work & adults only: Do a google search on Louisville cheerleader. For more pics, turn safe search off.

Try Genny's Diner and order the Frickled Pickles!

Also, Bardstown Road in the Highlands (different than the Bardstown listed in a post above, which is a city). It's where pretty much the entire nightlife of Louisville takes place.

I don't know what there is to do in Louisville, but KY can only add to the fun.

The last time I ate at Genny's Diner was the last time I will eat at Genny's Diner. :yack:

You can do what this guy did.

drink and eat?

Demontooth 05-02-08 09:37 AM

Go to www.louisvillehotbytes.com for dining advice.

mosquitobite 05-02-08 09:41 AM

I agree with DGibFan's choices :up:

4th Street Live is overrated unless you're still in that young (21-23) bar hopping stage. :shrug: Bardstown Rd is better for unique shopping, and there's plenty of bars along the road as well.

mosquitobite 05-02-08 09:43 AM

And besides eating and drinking - there isn't much to do in Louisville (except the Derby! :lol: )

Be sure to pronounce the city name as `LOO-e-vil` and not `LOO-ih-vuhl` so that you can blend in.

shaun3000 05-02-08 11:06 AM

I thought the "correct" pronunciation was, "LOO-i-vuhl." The guy on the news even said it that way.

:lol: this is correct.

Definitely go to Ear X-Tacy - best record store I have ever been to (and I have been to quite a few!)

Demontooth 05-02-08 12:01 PM

I third Ear X-Tacy. I was just in there the other day.

shaun3000 05-06-08 10:26 PM

Weird, I just now got emails that this was replied too. (Same for another topic)

Anyway, here's what we ended up doing: Mammoth Cave National Park on Friday, Jim Beam and Makers Mark on Saturday. (I know, none of that was in Louisville)

wendersfan 05-21-08 10:01 AM

Bumping this thread to mention that I'll be in Louisville this coming weekend, to attend Abbey Road on the River, a five-day long Beatles festival. If any Kentuckiana members want to meet up let me know.

Get yourself a HOT BROWN. And yes, that's SFW.

I know what a hot brown is; I used to make them when I cooked at Columbia Steak House in Lexington. And, I'm a vegetarian anyway.
