See firsthand how bourbon and whiskey are made from start to finish at Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Experience , located at the site of the legendary, long- closed Stitzel Weller Distillery, where you can have a cocktail and a bite at the onsite Garden & Gun Club . South Points is also home to Iroquois Park , one of the gems of the Olmsted parks and the site of the region’s best Halloween event, Jack O’ Lantern Spectacular , running nightly in October. Another spooky site to tour is the Waverly Hills Sanatorium , which served for decades as a tuberculosis hospital, with some considering it the most haunted place on earth. Delicious and inexpensive international dining options are favorites including Jerusalem Café , Annie’s Cafe , and Vietnam Kitchen (a top pick of many Louisville chefs).
In recent years, South Louisville has experienced a renaissance. Young families have moved into this area of second- and third-generation residents, and many have come from across the globe. With this mix of old and new, the area has become a multicultural community that’s rich and diverse. Start your morning before heading to Churchill Downs like many horsemen do with biscuits and gravy or a Pam & Jack’s omelette at Wagner’s . The old- time pharmacy with a soda fountain has been a Louisville institution since 1922. Experience the thrill and traditions of the Kentucky Derby every day at the Kentucky Derby Museum , where a tour of Churchill Downs (home of the legendary Kentucky Derby), a 360-degree high- definition multimedia show, exhibits, café, and gift shop await visitors.
