    You MUST have The Hot Brown sandwich. Any other restaurant is a fake - this sandwich was born here!

    Ask your server or bartender for your Urban Bourbon Trail Passport! Try the traditional Mint Julep, made with Maker's Mark and homemade mint syrup, or ask for the "Julep Tea".

    The legendary Hot Brown sandwich was born here~it's not a trip to Louisville if you don't indulge! This is a classic old school hotel built in 1923~I wish these walls could talk & tell me stories!

    See Gerald at the cafe bar. He's a great guy and has all the insider tips you could want about Louisville, the Derby, and the New York Yankees.

    Order the old fashioned and sit at the piano on the second floor bar. You will feel like Daisy Buchanan!

    DON'T SLAM YOUR F'N DOOR!! You're not the only one in the hotel! It's very disrespectful when you slam it in the early AM or late PM!!! Or ever for that matter!

    In 1926, chef Fred Schmidt served the first “Hot Brown” sandwich to guests, hungry after an evening of dancing. This delicious treat is featured today in many cookbooks.

    The menu at the bar is great, and much less expensive than the main dining room.

    The originator of the "Hot Brown", basically a really good turkey club with mornay sauce. Definitely share-able... but in my defense, I was pretty hungry.
