Cool outdoor dining, drinking, and music scene

Cool downtown experience with live outdoor music in the summer, great places to grab a bourbon (or dinner).

4th Street is a great time. Tons of restaurants, from sports bars to upper end dining, many of which are open air so you can enjoy the weather and live music that is played nearly every night. In the enclosed area you are free to carry alcoholic beverages around and bar hop, hang and watch the bands or whatever you... More

Before going to Louisville a friend told me to make sure I went to Fourth Street live. It is a nice area. A covered shopping, entrtainment district, that makes it easy for pedestrians to choose from a large number of options. It's nice, but it has the feel of an overly commercialized touristy area and lacks the charm that can... More

A lot of things to do and places to eat on Fourth Street Live! Bands playing in the evening, well lit with colored lights.

We always try to go to dueling piano bars when we find them. They are a riot! This one was exceptional in that the "band" was very versatile, there were six members and they all sang, played the piano, drums and guitar. We were lucky to find a table right away and enjoyed the show tremendously. Our waitress was a... More

this was a great place to hang out and hear live music,dj and people watch. Lots of establishments in this small area that is sort of like a miniature New Orleans . Of course nothing can or will ever compare to New Orleans!!😀

The area was not crowded on a Thursday night. We walked over on a whim from our hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. A large stage was in the street and there was a cover band playing. There was a definite country theme to the bars and music, which we enjoyed. There were several different bars with food... More

If you are visiting from out of town, the this is the place to go to downtown if you want corporate restaurants that have standards across the country. If you are looking for a more local feel, or a wider range of taste, then stay away. It all depends on what you are looking for. Nothing bad about 4th Street... More

Some people like it but many more hate is just as much as i do. They are known to discriminate against certain people. They will never receive my patronage again.

We spent a couple of days in Louisville, KY and walked down to the 4th street live area to find a restaurant. The first night, the band was loud and terrible! Couldn't understand the lyrics, was pretty much just a scream-fest. We walked through quickly to a restaurant on the far side. The 2nd night, there was apparently a fee... More
