Tucked away on the second floor of the historic Galt House Hotel is a fantastic cocktail (and bourbon) experience: 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.

The Drinks

Jockey Standards:

Winter Old-Fashioned (Bourbon, Sugar, Barrel Bitters, Winter Spices — Dark and Warming)

Jockey’s Manhattan (Bourbon, Averna, Vermouth — Boozy and Herbal)

Kentucky Apple Shine (Brown Sugar Bourbon, Spiced Apple Cider — Spiced and Fresh)

Oaks Philly Mule (Vodka, Cranberry, Lemon, Cassis, Ginger Beer — Fruity and Robust)

Smoke On The Water (Rye Whiskey, Brandy, Vermouth, Bitters, Smoke — Smokey and Bittersweet)

Oh – and don’t miss the extensive bourbon flights + bourbon pours!
