Down One is currently closed for renovations

On April 19, 2018, Al J Schneider announced plans for an $80 million renovation– to include all public spaces and guest rooms of the Galt House Hotel and the company-owned restaurants, including Down One Bourbon Bar.

We are excited to share that our nationally acclaimed bourbon bar, Down One, will be the first of our spaces to be renovated.

To accomplish this, we will close our doors for an anticipated ten-week period while we redesign the space and reimagine our food and beverage menus.

We will open with a celebration, unveiling a fresh, welcoming space, a new culinary experience and hospitable southern service.

We hope you’ll visit us in July, when we will once again be a beloved stop on the Louisville Urban Bourbon Trail!
