Louisville’s Whiskey Row made some room for a beer hall among the bourbon.
The Hall on Washington Street is on the backside of Whiskey Road at 1st and Washington Streets.
The beer hall concept pays homage to the German population who once lived and worked in Louisville.
It’s all about creating a fun, communal environment. The Hall has a 65-foot bar and shared tables.
German-inspired food is served, along with German beer, other beer, cocktails and wine.
Business is booming on Whiskey Row, and the general manager of The Hall is excited to be part of it.
“The Yum! Center is straight down the block, Old Forester anchors us in the middle of the block, our sister company Sidebar at Whiskey Row is around the corner here — there’s numerous restaurants up and down — there’s two new hotels being built on the corner, the Distil and the Moxy,” Michael McGorty, General Manage of The Hall, said. “So this is kind of the up-and-coming of the second wave of the new generation of what’s going on in downtown Louisville.”
The building was part of the big Whiskey Row fire back in 2015.
Built in the 1870s, it’s been a pork factory, blue jean factory, a brewery and a distillery.
