From premier fine dining in the Lobby Bar & Grill, to the light and airy elegance of J. Graham’s Café, The Brown Hotel is home to Louisville’s most exceptional and memorable dining experiences.

While every meal at The Brown Hotel is memorable, we’d be remiss if we didn’t suggest at least one “Hot Brown.” Indeed, it’s a culinary requisite on any visit to Louisville. "The Hot Brown" is a world-famous dish invented at The Brown Hotel in 1926. It has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times and dozens of other media outlets (and cookbook pages) since its baked-to-perfection debut.

If you’d prefer to drink in the history of Louisville, The Brown Hotel is the premier address on the Urban Bourbon Trail, a collection of bars and restaurants that know and appreciate bourbon. From bourbon cocktails like Ali’s Smash and Kentucky Cider to bourbon flights, The Brown Hotel is a requisite stop for bourbon enthusiasts.
