Butchertown is a neighborhood that is rooted in culture, vibrancy, and history – it’s actually one of Louisville’s oldest locations dating back to the 1800s.
We have the best places to check out, whether you wanna dance the night away at a club, get a fantastic meal, or find a local treasure. You can even just wander around the neighborhood and take in the historic architecture.
This eight-lane alley is not only the oldest in the 502 but is also one of the oldest in America. Talk about retro!
Butchertown is so much more than pork products (thankfully), and actually has a pretty swanky food scene. While there may not be a ton of restaurants, what Butchertown does have is top quality!
It’s not just bourbon you can taste in Louisville – Butchertown-based Copper & Kings makes brandy and absinthe – but since this bourbon country, you better believe bourbon plays a role!
When you’re wandering around this charming area we won’t blame you if you stop into one… or three breweries to grab a beer!
A staple for shopping in the Butchertown neighborhood is the Butchertown Market. Built in early 1880, this is a spot that you simply can not miss when you drive past it.
The home is open for guided tours Tuesday-Thursday from 10 AM-2 PM. On display at the house, you can explore some of Edison’s early inventions including, you guessed it, light bulbs!
