Take a good look at Louisville, because it doesn’t matter if you’re a bourbon beginner or a connoisseur, you’ll leave Louisville with a love for Kentucky Bourbon!



  • Pick up your Urban Bourbon Trail passport and begin with lunch at Sway, a southern fare inspired by rich heritage! As you explore downtown Louisville, stop by the Troll Pub and/or Side Bar, right next to eachother!


  • In the evening, have dinner at Bourbons Bistro and catch a cab to the Galt House for a night cap at Jockey Silks Bar & Lounge. Congrats! You have made it halfway through the Urban Bourbon Trail! (Passports available at the Visitor Information Center, participating restaurants and bars)



  • Begin your second day on the Urban Bourbon Trail in NuLu with brunch at Harvest.


  • Head over to the Old Seelbach Bar for an afternoon drink, and hit Z’s Fusion for bourbon-infused appetizers.



  • Check your Urban Bourbon Trail passport for some “Step off the Trail” dining, attraction, shopping and spirit merchant suggestions, like Mint Julep Tours. MJT offers a variety of bourbon related tours, including the Urban Bourbon Trail and the distilleries of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
  • You can book a tour of Brown-Forman Cooperage and see the lumber yard, view the artful selection of staves and barrel assembly, charring and finishing.
