Zanzabar is a local institution. Since its opening in 1938 it has changed templates many times, but it has always remained a local watering hole. The recent incarnation has it all, from old-school arcade games and pinball tournament nights to local farm-to-table food and live music, things have surely changed since those prewar days. The food and drinks are outstanding, but a lot of people come just to revert back to their childhood with games like Paperboy, Asteroids, Frogger and Donkey Kong. When you add the live music, this version of Zanzabar appears as if it is the best one in the last 80 years.
Established in 1944, Check's has been a neighborhood tradition for over 60-years. They offer a full lunch and dinner menu along with a great beer selection. They also offers sports viewing, karaoke and other entertainment.
While much of Old Louisville can be exactly that, meaning old, Mag Bar takes a step (albeit a baby step) in the direction of the new. That means in a neighborhood full of bed and breakfasts trafficking in chamber music and merlot, this place offers a loud jukebox and Miller High Life. The bar's facade is made up of big plate-glass windows, so the sun shines in warmly right up to the bitter end of happy hour.
Four Pegs bills itself as a "Beer Lounge and Social Eatery." It aptly fits the bill because the friendly and knowledgeable staff treat guests to a smorgasbord of great beer and hearty grub that sticks to the ribs. The beer selection is carefully curated (rivaled only by Sergio's World of Beers), it has choices from some of the best regions in the world, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, the list goes on-and-on. Almost every night, there is some kind of special, wings on Tuesdays, pints on Wednesdays and Trivia Sundays are always a blast.
Beer nerds take note: The Nachbar is the place to be for beer selection in Louisville. There's a hefty menu of Belgians, Germans, other imports, and the best of the American microbreweries. There are lots of bottles and plenty of cascading hops out of the taps too. The walls are made of exposed brick, there's billiards and a backyard and a full bar in case beer isn't your thing.
Sol Aztecas Grill & Cantina - Bardstown Road is located in the center of Louisville and stays true to its Mexican roots.

You can enjoy the delightful food with live entertainment at an affordable price. Sol Aztecas is a fabulous place to be with your family and friends with its warm hospitality and great food.
Lisa's is one of Louisville's fine, aged, neighborhood dive bars. It's dark and dank and full of locals. Occasional live music events bring in outsiders from time to time, but this place's bread and butter is cold cans of cheap beer. Located on a stretch of East Oak Street halfway between downtown and the Bardstown Road area, Lisa's is the perfect place to stop for a cold one on the way from one side of town to the other. See website for photos and more.
Located across Bardstown Road, the Bard's Town is a local restaurant that is popular amongst one and all. What sets it apart from the rest is the fact that it serves artisan food and even the names of the dishes are symbolic, savor the Julius Ceasar Salad or simply order Mushroom of Venice. Right from the dishes to the events held here, everything is in sync with the theater theme of the restaurant. Happy hours, live music concerts and similar events are a regular feature at the Bard's Town. That’s not it, there is another surprise awaiting you on the second floor, the Bard's Town Theatre of the restaurant. This theater showcases works of new play-writers and stages innovative plays. Truly, Bard's Town offers a great mix of entertainment and tasty food.
Open for lunch and dinner, The Uptown Cafe is a local favorite. The menu offers fantastic seafood, chicken, and pasta entrees.
On one of the most bustling blocks of the always-bustling Bardstown Road corridor, Cumberland Brews serves up tall pours of craft-brewed beer and healthy helpings of Southern-fried comfort food. Brews range from traditional English-style classics to decidedly experimental stuff like a pale ale spiced up with a hit of Yerba Mate. To eat, fried fish sandwiches and cheeseburgers go great with a side of fried green tomatoes. Enjoyment of all of the above is amplified by the fast-paced street scene out front viewable through big picture windows (or through your own two eyes if you grab a table out on the sidewalk).
