I've been to a lot of bars in Louisville and this is by far the worst. Rude bartender, expensive drinks, bad atmosphere. Don't bother.

Overall, this place was just what I like -- cool old building, outstanding whiskey selection, and old, mostly functioning pinballs. I was, however, entirely disappointed with the bartender, who was a pretentious hipster who seemed more interested in promoting himself as knowing everything about bourbon,...More

I loved spending time here. Sort of a divey bar - definitely not upscale, but lots of whisky and lots of whisky knowledge as well. Enjoyed it throughly.

Love this cool bar! Low key and fabulous selection of libations! Bartenders were super nice even though they we swamped. Great jute box and pinball!

Yes, this is a unique place with a lot of bourbon on the menu. I found the pours long, but over priced as compared to other area establishments on the Urban Bourbon Trail.

Where to begin? Maybe with the eccentric decor, stickers, head mounts, and wall of beer taps and bottles. Maybe with the peanut dispenser, or the jukebox, or the heavenly rows upon rows of whiskey to choose from. This has instantly become my favorite bar on...More

Haymarket is a can't-miss spot every time I visit Louisville. If you want to be dazzled by an incredible selection of rare whiskies, there are few bars anywhere that can compare. The vibe is great, the staff is knowledgable and happy to answer any of...More

Stopped by as part of the Urban Bourbon Trail tour. The bar is as advertised, lots and lots of Bourbon! It was a eclectic crowd and a lot of fun. It was a little hard to talk due to the volume of the music, but...More
