Bar Review: Redefining Louisville’s Cocktail Scene at Jockey Silks
Jockey Silks has been a mainstay of the Louisville Bar Scene since 1972. Originally known for its dark corners and hand-carved wood, the bar shut down in July 2019 for an intense renovation. Trust me when I say this, y’all: it’s stunning. The space is chock-full of dark tones, yet they are inviting, warm, and – as odd as this might be to say – seductive.
An upscale bourbon lounge for the modern traveler and bourbon aficionado, there’s a menu offering for everyone.
