I frequently visited Fourth Street Live during April 16-18, 2015 for lunch and sometimes dinner. It's great for those in town for conferences held at Kentucky International Convention Center. I was able to have a variety of choices for lunch and/or dinner. I did eat at TGIF, Chipotle, and Smash Burger (the garlic Rosemary French fries were awesome). My favorite... More

This is the kind of place that gets young people fired up, with lots of loud music, drinking and dancing. Definitely a well-run place with plenty of security and a dress code that is enforced. Drinks are not inexpensive, which makes me wonder how young people can afford to spend many nights here.

Will definitely want to visit 4th st live during the warmer weather. Lots of fun bars and outdoor music venues that were closed for the cold weather, but looks like the place to be in Louisville during the summer months.

We enjoyed Fourth Street Live very much. We loved being able to walk there from our hotel. We also liked that the restaurants serve food very late and that there are many choices. Lots of fun!

The place concentrates different bars. Its a nice place if you want to have good food, drink some beers and watch sports. The Hard Rock Cafe is located there, in the heart of Louisville downtown.

This is an overrated tourist trap. The food is crappy or run of the mill. Half of the shops are vacant. If you want an authentic experience, go to Bardstown Rd. or the restaurants across the street from KFC Yum Center on Main Street. Troll Pub Under the Bridge is really cool and Me Gusta is a sports bar disguised... More

Fourth Street Live! has a bunch of restaurants and bars and things. I mainly visited for nightlife. During March Madness, they had the games playing on a big screen outside in the center. It's also accessible by the pedway for easy access from some of the downtown hotels. There was a fun vibe.

So many establishments to choose from. Hard Rock, a bowling bar, neat place. Live music, a giant flat screen for sporting events, kinda worth it. I will say this 1 bottle of beer in any joint is equal to a six pack you can enjoy safely in your own home. Good place to visit for out of towners.

I checked it out, nothing special, if you are a traveler and in the know the same contractor that built Power and Light district in Kansas City built 4th Street live. Some same restaraunts, overpriced food and drinks, etc. Kansas City does have a nicer setup though, but when I'm in KC don't go anymore, either. Both places have a... More
