some life to Louisville

Great venue for music and nightlife. It's got a COVERING over it.....so it works even in inclement weather.

The weather was suitable, the bars/restaurants were inviting, the music was live, and the lighting was wonderful!

From food, to bourbon, to nightlife , 4th Street Live! is a great attraction in itself. Coupled with the the other attractions of downtown Louisville, this is a can't miss stop.

Went with some friends from out of town, the only thing I really didn't was the music. The live band was cool, but as a black male, I'm into all kids of music, but the mix was more rock and country to my liking in 1 night.

Spent Saturday night here with friends. They have lots of great food places to eat and bars for drinking. And it is safe. I felt very safe in this area. And it was very close to my hotel.

My husband and I decided to go to Louisville on a last minute whim. We booked a room at the Embassy Suites and enjoyed the Fourth Street live venue. We enjoyed walking around along with all of the different places to eat and drink. We enjoyed everything very much.

A great downtown area for nightlife, this area of Louisville is much like pedestrian malls in a lot of cities. There's food and shopping and lots of neon lights. There are some great local bars as well as chain restaurants like Hard Rock.

Fourth St. is blocked off for a block and half of the road surface has a roof. This way you can wander around not worrying about the weather. There are tons of bars and eateries with live stage offerings on the street.

Visited this area several times while in Louisville. Lots of great options to dine and have drinks. Great food at GB brewery. Enjoyed the music at Howl at the Moon.
