Unless you like people watching, this place is horrible. You have to pay $10 to even get to the upstairs bars, and it is full of very drunk people. The drinks are of course very expensive as well.

This is a downtown restaurant area on 4th street. There are lots of restaurant options and other things to do. This is where Jim Beam Urban Distillery is. We went on a Friday night from about 6-9 pm and ate dinner. Apparently late night, it is a little different though and turns into a club/party area. They started checking id's... More

A very trendy hub for different styles of food and entertainment. A little pricy, but very diverse and enjoyable experience. Something for everyone.

There were several vacant restaurants, and less activity than I would have expected in the places that are open. I suspect the place is HOPPING in warmer weather.

Plenty of bars and restaurants to pick from and open until 4am. They get some pretty good acts to come in and put on live shows. It's a must if you're visiting the area.

We spent New Year's Eve at Fourth Street Live. There was live music and a ball drop at midnight, I've been down here before in the summer time for free concerts and also a bachelorette party. Lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance from downtown hotels.

There might be something good at Fourth Street Live!, but I didn't experience it. It seemed to be an inauthentic Louisville Experience and full of the kind of people I don't enjoy hanging out with. It was walking distance from some great establishments, so if you're in that area, you probably have better options unless you're a 22 yr old... More

It's your typical cookie cutter bar district. several chains intermixed with local places and shops set inside old buildings. The street is cut off to vehicles mostly. There is a stage in the middle of the street, Several whiskey themed places. Went to both the chains and local places, not much happening either place. Probably kicks up if there is... More

Be prepared to show your id at night. You must be 21 to be admitted to this piece of 4th street with a concentration of pubs, bars and other alcoholic dealers! Live outside entertainments stop at 7pm.
