Character
Jan 2020 • Family
The owners had a vision when opening this place and I appreciate their vision. The antique mall downstairs has a bit of everything. They have smalls all the way up to furniture. Even if not looking to purchase, it is a cool place to walk around. The upper floors have spaces for weddings/large functions, art studios, gyms, spaces for small businesses, and a good pizza place (Danny Mac). The crack bread is not healthy at all, but delicious. They continue with remodeling/renovation. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this place that is already packed full of character.

Made Market event.
Aug 2019 • Couples
This weekend in a space that was recently opened I believe a number of local artisans were selling some unique items. It’s always nice to see local folks with interesting things to sell. We came away with a couple of finds today. From time to time they have these local events there that are worth a look. You could even buy an upscale teepee there. Really?

Kind of empty

Lots of empty store fronts. There is a gym which is great and a pizza place. It does have a party area that can be rented. It has limited parking.

Came here for Mom's Night Out! We walked around the whole venue. It was very unique. Danny's Macs was awesome! The part of the venue where they had the show at was very roomier and comfortable!

Bad experience
Jan 2019 • Family
They are still doing some painting and decorating. It’s really wet and smells strange. My mom and I feel it’s unsafe.

A true Gem for all Artisans
Dec 2018 • Couples
Mellwood Center is a multi-use facility that is home to many artists of all mediums. It is a unique place, unlike anything you will find in other cities. Louisville sets itself apart with locations like Mellwood and in supporting a vibrant and growing artistic community.

The buildings at Mellwood are vast and expansive. You can spend hours walking through them exploring the different studios and galleries from photographers to sculptors, metal workers, glass blowers, painters and more. Most the artists are very friendly and open their studio to the public to showcase their craft. Many also offer items they have crafted for sale, and most are very reasonably priced. If you are searching for something unique, you almost certainly can find it or have it created from your ideas by one of the artists who lease space at Mellwood.

The structures and buildings at Mellwood are also fantastic, initially built by the Fischer Meat Packing Company in 1904 it served to process bacon for many years before being closed and repurposed. Today Mellwood is home to over 200 artisans along with retail, event space and several great restaurants and with over 360,000 square feet they always have a variety of areas open for new artisans.

I have not ever visited an event here but have worked with various artists over the last twelve years and only wish that a place like Mellwood Center for the Arts was available in the greater Atlanta area.

Bacon and bourbon-centric benefit was a blast!
Jan 2018 • Couples
Mellwood Art Center’s cavernous ballroom was the venue for this year’s B3 Fest (bacon, bourbon, and craft beer) which benefitted a local children’s hospital. Nice roomy atmosphere accommodated hundreds of people easily and was set up with dozen of dining and cocktail tables, a stage with lively funk party band, and lots of room to boogie. Decent restroom facilities, massive wet bar space, giant wrought iron chandeliers. A circular driveway steps from the front door made it easy to step right into an Uber. Great space for a large event!

Wedding Venue
Aug 2017 • Family
We attended a wedding here. The venue is industrial rustic; it used to be a slaughter house. It has great places to take pictures if you like the industrial look. It has gallery's with beautiful art. Parking is great for your event. It is a unique venue.
