Down One Bourbon Bar

Bourbon. Brisket. Beer. Bluegrass.


Down One Bourbon Bar & Restaurant is a unique bourbon experience in Louisville, KY. With a speakeasy theme, Down One is nestled in the middle of Louisville's Historic Whiskey Row. Relax on our patio lined with magnolia trees, enjoy a beef brisket biscuit sandwich and sip on a bourbon, beer or one of our delicious cocktails. Live bluegrass every Friday, first and third Saturdays, starting March 22.
