A friend and I stopped in at the Bourbon Bar on a Wednesday night during happy hour in the middle of April. It was our first stop in historic Bardstown. We just had beverages at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable of area history (not just Tavern's history) and bourbon distilleries. There were only 5 people in the bar but everyone was very friendly and sharing stories.
We liked the atmosphere and would've come back later in night but they closed at 9 pm.
