LOUD, but really fun!

Wow, if you want a lot of action, music, and fun, go to 4th street Live. This was just steps from our hotel, The Hyatt, and it is a pure party there. Great people watching... read more

This is a popular place for eating during the day, and partying during the night! We did both!! There are several very good, casual restaurants (along with the usual sub shops and hamburger joints). The evening clubs are loud, fun, and totally packed with people!! Worth a trip either day or night!

Our recent trip to Loiusiville had us stopping at 4th Street and taking in all the sites. My family of six enjoyed walking around and visiting the shops and going to the Hard Rock for lunch. We found a parking spot along the street just a block away and paid the meter for about three hours. We will definitely be... More

Great nightlife area! So many things to do and places to eat/drink. Worth taking the time to drop in. Was within walking distance of our hotel (the Galt House).

We were here for lunch in the middle of the afternoon, so we missed the big crowds & loud music. That's ok, we're older than most of the party crowd! However, there are lots of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs to choose from, and we had a great time people-watching over lunch!

Tavern was our favorite spot in Louisville. Upstairs drinks are good, service is good, and the bags, beer pong, bocci ball and pool are better.

Fourth Street Live offers several options for restaurants, bars and ice cream, etc. It is also a great place to sit street side and people watch. They have live entertainment - sometimes with headliner names.

Fourth street live is a great place to have dinner or catch some entertainment....many of the bars have either fiddle or piano or some other music....and many varied dining choices. Something for everyone

Fourth street live itself is a great idea for an otherwise very dead downtown area... At least you have one block that is open past 6pm in the Louisville downtown. However, be very prepared to be approached every 10 feet by homeless people asking for money or cigarettes! Louisville should address this issue. While I have nothing against the homeless,... More
