Four Street Live is more for tourists and convenience rather than a place that really represents Louisville. Lots of bright lights, chain restaurants, over priced drinks and entertainment packed in a two level block. But if Hard Rock Cafe, TGIF, Brazeiros Brazilian Restaurant is your thing, then Fourth Street is the place to be. Occasionally, Fourth Street hosts free concerts,... More

The bars and businesses were either out of business, or soon to be due to lack of customers. Virtually no one on street or in the bars that were still open. No entreatment not anything else attractive. Stay away.

A good down town area with a host of bars and security in the evening checking ID to let you in. The mint julep at the Hard Rock was good.

Liked the private and police security. Has a permanent stage and lighting for concerts. Restaurants/ Bars /Grills had street side seating ( some being on upper level ) to enjoy any entertainment on stage. Many choices of places to eat/drink

Maybe since I was there the day after the kentucky derby that's why I was not impressed with this place. Half of the places when we were there was shut down. The service at the sports bar with the bowling alley was horrible. Only good thing about this was that Makers Mark was open and had a great happy hour.

My family visited Fourth Street Live when we visited Louisville. It is a well-developed strip for shopping and entertainment with lots of stores, restaurants, and lounges. It is adequately lit at night, and we felt comfortable strolling back to our hotel at the end of our night. I would definitely visit again.

This is a place for you to enjoy a little of everything. Dinner, dancing, live music, or just a place to chill with friends.

Well I am not quite sure how to review 4th Street Live. It is pretty much how I expected it to be. Kind of like a mini Fremont Street in Las Vegas. It is basically a few blocks that are closed off and dedicated to eating, drinking, and fun. You have a choice of a bunch of restaurants, bars, and... More

We were in town for a wedding and came down the night before to check this place out. It didn't start getting busy until about 11. We went to PBR. Great band and atmosphere. The next day was a BBQ festival. Great venue. We will definitely go back. There are enough bars to choose from for anyone's tastes.
