After spending a few week-ends in Louisville, I realize I need some help finding the best bars after my wife moves down in December. I enjoyed the "scene" at Proof, the "warmth" of O'Sheas, and the music at Zenas.

Fourth Street Live was a bit too young and "plastic" for my tastes. After dinner at Jack Frys, many of the bars on Bardstown Road, in the direction away from O'Sheas, were empty and void of energy at 10:00 P.M. on a Saturday night.

This Wisconsin dude needs some suggestions! I am arriving from a state that loves to imbibe, and I want to continue in the tradition of the Badger state. Please help me. This is utterly important to my enjoyment of life in Louisville.

Thank you.

The Electric Cowboy on Dixie Highway is pretty cool, you might like it. I recommend giving the Highlands another shot. This is truly the best area of town for nightlife.

sadly, Louisville bars are open till 4am and we don't start drinking until 11pm so you won't get energy until after 1am in the Highlands.

You need to be more specific, and please know that the bars in Louisville do not get jumping until midnight.

My first suggestion for you, however, is Brendan's, and the general St Matthews bar district. You would also enjoy BBC over there. Do not write off fourth street totally. It really depends on the night, and each bar is completely different. You would really enjoy Maker's Mark lounge on certain nights. Try Pink Door or Monkey Wrench in the Highlands. Or Nachbar in Germantown. You would also enjoy Prime Lounge downtown sometimes.

From what I have seen, the nightlife in Louisville is killing Milwaukee or Madison, and this is coming from a Chicago native. Simply google my suggestions and check out their myspace pages. Then get back to me and I have plenty more options.

Default You're the man!

Thank you for your suggestions! We are in Louisville tonight November 8th, and have chosen to live on Bonnycastle in the Highlands. I am plan on checking on all your bars tonight. Thanks again.
