Head out the front entrance to the hotel and at the crosswalk you’ll run right smack dab into Fourth Street Live!  There are a TON of things to do, eat and see in this partially covered block of 4th Street.  The street is closed off to traffic, so it’s a fun place to explore all day and night.

If you’re looking for something quicker, there’s a food court there that has Subway, Taipei Cafe, & Philly Station

And just outside of 4th Street Live, there are a few other local restaurants and coffee houses:

Eddie Merlot’s Steakhouse (prime aged beef and seafood)

Heine Bros. Coffee (coffee, tea, breakfast options)

If you’re wanting to venture out a bit farther from the hotel, here are some great Louisville staples to check out:

Jack Fry’s, 1007 Bardstown Road, high-end Southern fare (editor’s note: in all the searches for the best food in Louisville that I did, Jack Fry’s came up in nearly every list. It’s a bit farther out than some of the other restaurants in this list, but should be worth the trip!)

Holy Grale

Harvest, 624 E. Market St., farm-to-table Southern comfort food

Shirley Mae’s Cafe, 802 S. Clay St., soul food and cocktails

Porch Kitchen & Bar
