Hey guys! Some friends and I are planning to go to Louisville for 3-6 days/nights. We are a young crowd, early 20's, looking for the best bars and restaurants to go to. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You would enjoy the pub crawl (some call it the Bambi Crawl for those newly of age) in the Highlands part of town. It's a stretch of Bardstown Rd. with lots of local shops, boutiques, pubs/bars and restaurants. There aren't any hotels in the area so you get the local vibe. Plenty of people walk up and down the busy street. Molly Malone's and O'Shea's are 2 well known pubs in the area. Also, The Back Door bar in the Mid City Mall is popular. You could Uber/Lyft to the area from your hotel.


Downtown also has some good nightlife. Check out bars on the Whiskey Row and the Urban Bourbon Trail.


4th Street Live is more of a club scene with restaurants too.


Nulu area also has great local restaurants and bars:
