About Down One

Down One Bourbon Bar & Restaurant is unlike any other bourbon experience in Louisville, KY. With a speakeasy theme, Down One Bourbon Bar & Restaurant is nestled in the middle of Louisville’s Historic Whiskey Row. Relax on our patio lined with magnolia trees, sip on one of over 160 bourbons, and reminisce about the speakeasies of the Prohibition Era in our secret phone booth room with some of the rarest bourbons. We also offer a proprietary barrel program.

Featured in National Geographic Magazine’s “Best in the World: Must-See Places for 2014”, Down One offers a full restaurant with a seasonal and locally- sourced food menu. The Three Little Pigs sandwich was named the best BBQ Sandwich by Restaurant Hospitality.

Down One Bourbon Bar & Restaurant is proud to be a destination on the Urban Bourbon Trail andĀ has helped make Louisville one of the “12 Best Cities for Whiskey Lovers.”
