Jockey Silks Bourbon Bar
Ranked #3 of 1,805 Restaurants in Louisville
Certificate of Excellence
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Description: LET THE SOUND OF SHAKERS & ICE LEAD THE WAY! Amber gold poured over ice (or straight) then that whiff of caramel hits you. So you lean into the wing backed chair where jazz lives in the shadows to take it all in. It's silk on the palate, silky like the colors that round the track. Jockey Silks Bourbon Bar is one of the original locations on the Urban Bourbon Trail with a collection of bourbon and whiskey curated by connoisseurs. Enjoy craft cocktails for modern tastes inspired by classics served nightly.

Menu is very small offers poor alternatives. Food was terrible, their Bourbon/Whiskey selection is very poor (an insult to Kentucky), and the rest of drinks is just cheap common brands you can find anywhere. Service was very bad (we had to walk to the front every time we wanted to order something, which they will take forever to bring), Manager was a rude and unexperienced boy. STAY AWAY FROM HERE!

Thank you for your feedback and we appreciate your visit. As I mentioned on a different social media site to you, we are proud of our team and what they have accomplished during these very unusual times. Maybe it was an off night, even at the #1 bar on Trip Advisor in the city but it is by all means not the worst place ever. Our bourbon selection is carefully curated with cooperation of some of the best producers in the business. There is no insult to KY at all. None of our managers are rude and certainly not a "unexperienced boy", which I think is quite insulting to our great team. We are the first to recognize that not everything is back to normal during this tail end of the pandemic. Please feel free to contact me direct at the hotel, if you want to discuss this any further.
Thanks again for coming.
Stay well,

We were attending Louisville to see James Taylor in concert and stopped into Jockey Silks for dinner and drinks before the concert. Everyone else must have had the same idea because they were so busy. We ate at the bar and were served by Angie and Todd. Even though they were so busy they were so very personable and took such good care of us. We were both so impressed. Not to mention the food was delicious and the drinks were great.
