  • Comedy Caravan features local and national comedians and serves bar-type food.
  • The Vernon Club holds one of the country’s oldest bowling alleys and is really a neat place. They have a nice bar upstairs, and some great shows downstairs.
  • Fourth Street Live is where the action is in Louisville. Check it out for dinner, drinks, or just people watching.
  • The Hotel Galthouse isn’t really a hot spot, but a nice place to sample one of the world’s largest selections of bourbons.
  • Dietrich’s on Frankfort is a popular place with a cabaret atmosphere and sidewalk seating.
  • The Vernon Club is a bowling alley and a music venue. It holds one of the country’s oldest bowling alleys upstairs and a music venue downstairs.


  • Phoenix Hill Tavern is in one of the city’s oldest buildings. They feature live music every weekend. If you visit just one nightclub in Louisville, make it this one.
