  • Wow.. What a place...there are live bands here..drinks, food of all varities, benches to just sightseeing the area and convenience stores. There are jewelry shops, clothing for men, women, and children. There is a park in this area and surrounded with sandwich shops, Food Court, upscale restaurants, theater and so many other attractions. During the spring and summer months this place is filled with folks from every walk of life. It is one of Louisville's favorite dining experiences or just to relax and enjoy the weather and the scenery.
  • It is a large open area under a ongoing roof with a variety of bars, and restaurants. I had the honor of being invited to PBR Louisville where I was recognized for my works done as a Victim Liaison for my fire department, and community involvement. They bring positivity by recognizing civic and military personnel. Can't wait to go back.
  • How is this place even still open? I dread going here to be honest. The bar tenders are rude, probably because of the people they have to deal with on a nightly bases. The drinks are over priced, and to top it all off they close early. We didn’t know what time a bar closed and assumed it would be at 2 or 4 a.m. and went in. The bar tender had us buy a drink and as soon as we sat down they told us to get out because they were closing. They told us to just go out onto the street. We asked why they didn’t tell us they were closing and why they let us buy a drink if it was time to go. They didn’t have an answer. No one was there and it was dead on a weekend night. Not my favorite place to go. In fact it’s my least favorite place in Louisville. There are much better bars in Louisville with cool bar tenders and great atmospheres. Don’t waste your time or money here.
  • It's one of the reasons I moved to Louisville, though, upon reflection, one should probably not make major life decisions based on exciting neon signs and nightlife opportunities. The good: a nice selection of restaurants to choose from. GB Brewery and Eddie Merlot's are the best. Einstein's has bagels, but it's kind of factory style. The bad: The outdoor concerts rarely appeal to me. It seems to be a line up of head bangers with no seating. They should mix up the music more. If you're a tourist, you'll end up here. Locals know better places to go. The ugly: When there is a concert you actually want to attend, the heat and crowds may drive you away.
  • I always love going on 4th street. I do wish there was a bit more variety in the range of activities. Yes you have the Hard Rock and the occasional concert/event here and there, but past those 2 things... I don't know. You can find some cool shops further down the street but they don't get the recognition they deserve.
