Frankfort Avenue stretches from the historic Clifton neighborhood, which derives its name from one of the area’s most important early landholders, to St. Matthews. Frankfort Avenue is quickly becoming the counterpart to Bardstown Road, just minutesfrom downtown and lined with some of the city’s best restaurants and upscale consignment shops. Deals can be found on designer clothes for unbelievable prices. Unique galleries and shops, such as Sister Dragonfly, offer items that cannot be found anywhere else in the city. Buy the latest bestseller from Carmichael’s Bookstore, a locally owned bookstore. And if antiques are what your heart desires, Frankfort Avenue claims some of the city’s best antique shopping.

Frankfort Avenue is home to many popular watering holes, including Silver Dollar and Gerstle’s Place, offering distinctly different nightlife experiences.

Known as FAT Friday, the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Hop offers a fabulous way to discover this area’s originality. It’s held the final Friday evening of each month. For more details and to download a neighborhood guide, check out www.FrankfortAve.com.
