Fourth Street Live has an assortment of bars and eateries. Nice to have a drink or to have a unwind with friends. Howl at the Moon is a dueling piano bar that looks to be lot's of fun. You will need reservations though and they are not cheap. You can get in and stand for a cheaper price, but a... More

Two trips to 4th street live with friends from out of town. The first night was great, good food at TGI Friday's and an after dinner drink. It was a nice environment. The next night we were much later and found everything closed but the bars. It was very crowded with a rowdy crowd. There was an obvious need for... More

This area is chocked full of chain restaurants and bars which can be convenient if you are out for a night on the town. It wasn't over populated but the drinks seemed a little overpriced.

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.
