Business trip in Louisville? Here are our top picks for places that are “must-do’s” before you leave.
Where to eat:
Everyone knows that Louisville has some of the best food in the nation (ahem KFC…just kidding) but don’t listen to what travel guides have to say, here are ‘Louisville locals’ favorite spots to chow down
This Louisville staple is the perfect lunch spot, located on the bustling Bardstown Road, you can enjoy fine dining and explore walkable shops and local culture. It is also a stones throw away from the sweet treats at Steel City Pops so you can cool down before you head back to work.
Pasta, atmosphere, class.. Vincenzo’s Italian restaurant is the go-to for client meetings or a night out with an old friend. It doesn’t hurt that it is also just a couple blocks away from Fourth Street Live, Louisville’s niche tourist hub.
You’re in the South. Eat BBQ. Feast represents what is great about Louisville and the ‘Nu-Lu’ district, a foot in the past and present. Feast offers classic southern BBQ fare with a modern twist i.e. a smoked tofu sandwich or our favorite: the bourbon slushy.
Whiskey by the drink..and a lot of it. Seriously, if you can name even half of the whiskeys Silver Dollar has to offer I would be highly impressed; they also have a fantastic dinner menu and cocktail list that does not disappoint.
Where to sleep:
Just like the respected food scene, Louisville has some seriously accomplished & historic hotel chops.
Luxurious, lavish, historic and centrally located to the best Louisville has to offer, the Seelbach Hotel is different than any hotel you’ve stayed in before. Part of the inspiration for ‘The Great Gatsby’ and frequented by the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Al Capone alike; there is so much to be said about the history of this establishment that I recommend you just click on the link above.
Voted in the Top 30 Southern hotels and Top 500 hotels in the world, The Brown is no slouch when it comes to luxury. The Brown Hotel also offers some of the best cuisine in the city behind it’s doors including the signature ‘Hot Brown’ a Louisville classic open-face sandwich that is to die for.
Looking for something a little more modern?
“Located directly on Louisville’s historic Whiskey Row and blocks from NuLu, Aloft Louisville Downtown provides easy access to the best of the city. Grab a bite at Corner Restaurant & Bar or spend a day along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Home of the Kentucky Derby and the Louisville SluggerTM, everyone can find something fun to do during a visit.”-http://www.aloftlouisvilledowntown.com
