Louisville's Best Restaurants, Bars And Foodie Travel Ideas

Good food and excellent drinks have fueled Louisville's reputation as one of the hottest bar and restaurant towns in the nation. Chefs take advantage of a network of nearby local farms for meat, dairy, poultry and produce. The birthplace of craft cocktails (the old fashioned was invented in Louisville), Derby City has had a lively bar scene just about since flatboats poled downriver to New Orleans, and the renaissance in craft beer breweries can also be traced back to Louisville's past. Today Louisville is a city that loves to eat and be entertained—and there's a growing list of great places to do so.
