Quirky and artsy bar with a cool vibe. Try one of their highballs or bourbon flights!

A great bar in the 21c hotel. The drinks are creative and tasty. Be prepared to drop some big money, this place is not for people with shallow wallets. Great starting point for a night out, even if it's just one drink.

Great place to grab a cocktail and walk through the art gallery. Dinner and lunch are also exceptional, and it's in a great location downtown.

Delicious food! Although cost of entrees is on the higher end for Louisville, I found the food to be reasonably priced. Very artsy restaurant. I LOVED the "exploding seagulls" exhibit (something I could relate to as a frequent NJ beach goer).

Just down the street from the Actors Theatre of Louisville and the Louisville Science Center, Proof on Main is housed in an art-rich, historic hotel. The ambiance is part of the price, but worth it if you are looking for a beginning-to-end dining experience rather than just a place to fill a hungry belly (in other words, portions are on the small side). Menu features an American Southern-Italian fusion resulting great variations of squash (try the squash falafel on the dinner menu) and creative takings on condiments and sides like sweet potato mustard and pickled blueberries. Bar features a host of Kentucky bourbons.
