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.

I didn't think it was possible, but it is. This is a watering hole specializing in bourbons, in, of course, the Mecca of bourbon. It doesn't look like much until you taste what they have to offer. We were there on a Tuesday night. They had two staff on site. Clearly it is not usually too busy a night... 20,... More

Have been here so many times and always find the bartenders friendly and knowledgeable of their wide range of bourbons. Their Manhattans are the best in the area. A dive but a great dive. Hundreds of empty bottles and tap handles on the walls. If you've never been here, you must!!

What a fantastic bar! Great selection of bourbons, but also they have cheap specials ($2 Hudy's on Sunday) and a friendly, helpful bartender. The house Old Fashioned is excellent- the cherries are a house specialty and I plan to make them at home. Bourbon specials are truly special and the bartender had time to explain the nuance of each of... More

This place looks like a dive bar as it is dated and filled with tchotchkes. Our bartender was extremely friendly, knowledgable and welcoming. They have bottles that are exclusive to their establishment as their staff have sampled and purchased full barrels form various distilleries. Their are arcade games to pass the time, but the cool ambiance and the huge selection... More

So, I am a scotch fan but went here for a couple of drinks with a business partner. The place is cool and low key and they have an incredible bourbon selection. I talked to the bartender about what types of scotch I like and he recommended a couple of bourbons that I tried. The bourbon was good, but I... More
