about bourbons


Locally owned, Kentucky Proud, and an Original Member of the Urban Bourbon Trail, Bourbons Bistro located minutes from downtown in the historic Clifton Area on Frankfort Avenue.

We have been featured on national television programs and been the recipient of awards from the Courier-Journal, Whisky Magazine, Kentucky Bourbon Festival and more. Most recently we were awarded the Gold Medal for Whisky Magazine’s “Whisky Bars of the World” and made Imbibe’s top “100 Places to Drink in the South”.

The bourbon-inspired menu changes seasonally and Kentucky favorites always grace the menu creating a diverse experience for diners. In addition to over 130 bourbons Bourbons Bistro offers monthly bourbon dinners, exclusive featured bourbons, and a selection of rare and unique bourbons that you will not be able to find anywhere else. We take great pride in our bourbon heritage and Kentucky roots. We are where bourbon country comes to eat.

Our historic building dating back to 1877, provides a great setting for the upscale-casual interior that is warm and inviting. Outdoor dining is available on a seasonal basis on our covered patio with a fireplace. Experienced staff is dedicated to providing an exceptional dining experience.
