The Haymarket is listed in every bourbon magazine or Bourbon bar review you'll read for Louisville. It's a dive and it's AWESOME.

So.. you want a dive bar with simple pop culture stuff tossed around with a great selection of bourbon, and a bar staff that makes you feel like you are intruding on something else important they have to do... go ahead. I found the Old Fashioned.... boring.. and the attitude of the bartender was crap. We were recommended this place... More

This is a great place with a vast selection of bourbon. It is definitely a hole in the wall type of place. The environment isn't for everyone...

We went to this place to check it out because it was right beside our hotel. It's a great little place with a huge selection of bourbon. The only thing was that the bartender while efficient was not friendly at all. Maybe he hates tourists? He should get an attitude check. Otherwise the place seems cool.

All whiskey all the time! Amazing whiskey selection - I'm not even a whiskey drinker and I found 3 new whiskeys I now love. Well worth a stop to this little dive bar complete with a jukebox! Stop by and talk hockey with Matt as long as you are a Blackhawks fan!

They have everything bourbon and whiskey here. They have all the rare stuff, and yes they have all the Pappy if you want to pay for it. Customer service was great. I had a bourbon flight and a amazing Rye Old Fashioned.

This place is certainly a place to visit if you are in the mood for a bourbon selection. Some reviews state over 300 varieties, I can believe it. Bar staff are friendly and willing to offer advice to bourbon amateurs. Definitely worth a stop if you are visiting, or even if you are a local.

Our group of twelve visited for a fundraiser. We were quite impressed with the decor and atmosphere. The staff and volunteers were great. The place is much bigger than it looks from the street.

The Haymarket Whiskey Bar is the best bourbon spot in Louisville. We came here back to back nights. Great bartenders and best selection of bourbon I have ever seen. Paul was the best, he made our party even better.
