How to Celebrate NYE in Downtown Louisville

Cheers to 2019

The new year is often a time of reflection and celebration. Celebrate the past year, and everything yet to come with our recommendations.

Have a little fun.
What better way to celebrate than with an all-night party? Join us in the Atrium Gallery starting at 9pm for Metamorphosis. This NYE celebration will include drag performances by Stevie Dicks and Zsa Zsa Gabortion, and spins by Ghouligan and DJ Bombshell. There will also be light snacks provided Proof on Main, an open bar by Michter’s Whiskeys, and champagne toasts by Laurent-Perrier.

Price is $79 per person, and you must be 21+ to attend. Tickets can be purchased online here.


Get some (well deserved) R&R.
Nothing says relaxation like getting a massage, ordering room service and watching the ball drop in a luxurious robe. Need we say more? Stay the night with us and start the year refreshed.

And if you get a little restless and decide to party, we have an NYE hotel package that includes 2 tickets to Metamorphosis (mentioned above) and complimentary late check out at 3pm.

Start the year with art.
Grab your drink of choice at Proof on Main (named Wine Enthusiast’s 100 Best Wine Restaurants, btw), and explore 21c Louisville’s current exhibition Dress Up, Speak Up: Costume and Confrontation. Be sure catch the special exhibition in Gallery 5, The Other South: Photographs by Laura Lee Brown. Featuring photographs from the 21c co-founder’s journey to Antarctica last winter, the exhibition is simply breathtaking.

After browsing the art at 21c, walk down Main Street to Frazier History Museum. Now the official starting point of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Frazier’s current exhibition The Spirit of Kentucky provides an in-depth look at the history of bourbon whiskey.

Pro Tip: Downtown distillers will be closed on New Year’s Day. Kentucky Peerless, Angel’s Envy, and Evan Williams will all be open on New Year’s Eve and are worth a visit.


Food more your thing?
Indulge in local flavor at Proof on Main for dinner on New Year’s Eve or brunch New Year’s Day as they will have special dishes for the occasion. If you want to venture off Main Street, we recommend checking out Garage Bar in Nulu for brunch on New Year’s Day. Typically only open for brunch on the weekends, this Tuesday treat will surely start your new year off right.
