Plan Your Next Friday Night Out in Louisville

So we put together this really cute "Glam Up & Go Out" class for Friday, May 18th – Check it out! – but just in case you need makeup tips and going out tips, I've pulled together a few places worth getting all done up for in Louisville on a Friday night.


Hell or High Water

Let your Friday night take you below whiskey row with an evening at the city's newest speakeasy, Hell or High Water. Featuring craft cocktails, charcuterie and scoops of Louisville Cream for dessert. The decor is so incredible you won't even feel like you're in Louisville anymore. 

Pro Party Girl Tip: Get a reservation, our risk being turned away at the door.


Artesano Tapas

In the summertime, Artesano's patio is the place to see and be seen. They recently launched an all-new menu and charred octopus is everything. I highly recommend ordering the sangria swirl, it's like a grown-up slushie. 

Pro Party Girl Tip: Don't shy away from anything with garlic, there's complimentary mouthwash in the restroom for guests.


River House

River House's massive patio means there's always someone worthwhile to flirt with out on a Friday night at this restaurant. Make dinner reservations, sidle up to the bar, or grab a few Adirondack chairs and hold court. 

Pro Party Girl Tip: The Louisville Film Society does outdoor moving screenings here regularly. Check their schedule for the next one.


Nouvelle Wine Bar

This charming all glass wine bar has an equally enchanting garden. Nouvelle glasses of wine start at a 3 ounce pour so you can create your own flights. The bread on the charcuterie board is Wiltshire's lavash bread – tres tasty. 

Pro Party Girl Tip: Nouvelle is right around the corner from Garage Bar and Galaxie, so it's the perfect place to start a night of bar hopping in NuLu.


The Hub

If just want to dance, do dinner on Frankfort avenue then get yourself over to the Hub. Great patio, great drinks and a dance floor that's manned by an ever rotating list of Louisville's best DJ's. And there's also a few pool tables, if that's what you're in to.
