Gastropub

“12 MINUTE WALK // Tiny-hole-in-the-wall spot that you'll want to keep coming back to. It's in a residential area so it's easy to miss. Look for the giant hammerhead shark on the building. If you're eating here on Friday or Saturday, get there early or be ready to wait a bit. It's worth it! ”

“LouVino is a bar that serves up small plates and big wines. Their impeccable menu takes the intimidation out of ordering bottles by describing juice with helpful, if a little tongue-in-cheek, designations like “fruit-forward and frisky,” “rich, bold and ‘intellectually satisfying,’” and “interesting and potentially funky.” ”

“Rooftop bar in downtown Louisville. Upscale and classy, amazing views. Drinks are pricey, it's def a place you go to for a drink or two and to enjoy the evening and weather. Don't go hungry! ”
