Long known as “Restaurant Row” Bardstown Road is located right in the middle of the Highlands neighborhood and is also home to a large number of eclectic eateries offering most every kind of culinary delight. Indian, Italian, Argentine, Brewpub, Irish Pub, and all types of fine dining are just some of choices you will have to make. Many of the restaurants offer al fresco dining or you can take a gourmet picnic to beautiful Cherokee Park that borders the Highlands on the East.

Galleries, boutiques, specialty shops, and antique stores dot Baxter Avenue and Bardstown Road. If you are Bookstorelooking for that one-of-a-kind item, this is the place to find it. Wandering through the Highlands takes you back in time with a great many preserved Victorian homes, turn-ofthe-century architecture, and a taste of Louisville’s local charm.

Nightlife flourishes in these neighborhoods as well. Live local music and artists are featured among the coffee shops, cafés, and pubs. Have a good laugh at Comedy Caravan or catch a foreign film at Baxter Avenue Theaters. Dance the night away or enjoy the company of friends at the numerous nightclubs and hotspots. The Highlands and all of the options they offer are just minutes from downtown. For more information check out www.thehighlandsoflouisville.com.
