Louisville Night Life

Nightlife in Louisville celebrates proud history
Louisville has a long, proud history, and there's much you'll find at night here to remind you of that fact. For instance, the Kentucky Opera is the 12th oldest opera operating in the United States. Food also has some memorable history in Louisville, where the cheeseburger was born in the 1930s. This city offers many diverse and ethnically rich restaurants and cafes. Some of the popular stops include Bearno's By the Bridge, offering pizza and live music, Bendova Sushi Bar, Lynn's Paradise Café, and English Café. Louisville is a music city, and you can enjoy some homegrown talent at nightclubs such as Phoenix Hill Tavern and Headliners Music Hall. For a more refined approach to nightlife, check out the plays and musical performances at the Kentucky Center and Brown Theatre. Here in the downtown area you'll find performances by acts including the Louisville Ballet, Louisville Orchestra, and Kentucky Opera. The Young American Shakespeare Festival also takes place in Louisville and The Louisville Palace in downtown is a historic landmark that opened in 1928 and features performances by many world-class entertainers. There's more to sports in Louisville than making baseball bats and unparalleled horse racing. The city is home to the University of Louisville, and the NCAA Division I Cardinals are a regular force in football and basketball in the competitive Big East Conference. Professional sports include The Bats, a Triple-A Minor League Baseball team affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds. For history and a memorable time, Louisville is the place.
