After a long afternoon of shopping on Bardstown Road and hiking through Cherokee Park, a pleasant place for a refreshment is Flanagan's. Less a party spot than neighboring O'Shea's, Flanagan's offers an commanding selection of beers -- both imported and craft brewed. The kitchen is no slouch either, keeping up with the beer selection with a menu of better-than-average pub grub, some traditionally Irish, some not so much. Note that barkeeps here are spirited ambassadors for their city, so if you require tips on where to go and what to see, ask away.
Although delicious food and a wide variety of craft beers are served at Highland's Taproom, it is the music which is the real draw to this pub. From Monday night metal gigs to karaoke nights, there is something here for everyone. An array of appetizers, light snacks, salads and sandwiches are served here along with various beers on the tap and by the bottle. Their amazing happy hour discounts draws in event more people while the special Sunday brunch draws in a regular morning crowd.
Many locals agree that of the numerous traditional Irish pubs in Louisville, the one most worth a visit is the Irish Rover. Like every Irish pub, it's got traditional food and lots of Guinness, but here they go the extra mile. The recipes are extra traditional. The Guinness is poured just right. And thanks to all of that, locals pack the place, creating a true feeling of community on any given night. See website for menu, sister location and more.
