Top Rated Nightlife in Louisville

Search Radius (Miles)
Zanzabar

Zanzabar is a local institution. Since its opening in 1938 it has changed templates many times, but it has always remained a local watering hole. The recent incarnation has it all, from old-school arcade games and pinball tournament nights to local farm-to-table food and live music, things have surely changed since those prewar days. The food and drinks are outstanding, but a lot of people come just to revert back to their childhood with games like Paperboy, Asteroids, Frogger and Donkey Kong. When you add the live music, this version of Zanzabar appears as if it is the best one in the last 80 years.

Haymarket Whiskey Bar

Situated right beside Residence Inn Louisville Downtown, this whiskey bar plies Kentucky bourbon as well as other potent libations in a building that dates from 1885. If you love whiskey, this unpretentious downtown bar with its fantastic selection of more than 100 varieties, is one you absolutely must visit. If whiskey isn't really your thing, don't despair because the bar also has craft and tap beers for you to enjoy as well. During the week, this popular watering hole has live bands in action, from traditional bluegrass trios to punk rock ones, each night is different.

Nachbar

Beer nerds take note: The Nachbar is the place to be for beer selection in Louisville. There's a hefty menu of Belgians, Germans, other imports, and the best of the American microbreweries. There are lots of bottles and plenty of cascading hops out of the taps too. The walls are made of exposed brick, there's billiards and a backyard and a full bar in case beer isn't your first choice. A popular summer venue, the patio is a great place to mingle over drinks in fine weather. Open till late, this hidden gem is a Germantown favorite for those in the know.

Headliner's Music Hall

Headliners is a Louisville institution that has hosted top local and national performers over the years. A mid-sized venue, the hall hosts an eclectic line up of performers of various genres from hip-hop to metal, bluegrass, and rock. Past performances include Disclosure, Kings of Leon, Dr. Dog, and Girl Talk. Housed in an early 20th-century building, the acoustics are excellent and the ambiance is lively. The elevated back bar allows you to wait in line with a view of the show. Schedules are available via the website or social media. Tickets can be booked online and prices vary according to the artists.

Manny & Merle On Whiskey Row

Manny & Merle's fuses a touch of the Old West in the kitchen (with tacos, guacamole and flat-iron steak as quintessential examples) alongside strong select bourbons you could only find in a Kentucky bar. This honky-tonk spot has everything, from amazing Southwestern-inspired food to live bands and even a nice selection of tequilas. Throughout the week, the bar/restaurant hosts live music and though many of the bands are local, on occasion a national or international star will make his/her appearance.

Stevie Ray's Blues Bar

Feeling blue? Stevie Ray's has the cure: signature margaritas, an enthusiastic clientele, and some of the top names in blues music playing every week. Go big on the dance floor and enjoy the tunes of a mixture of well-known and local talent. A small cover charge varies by night of the week, but Thursdays are bike nights - where bikers get in free. Some guests may wish to note that this bar is smoke-friendly.
