    Sidebar At Whiskey Row

    • SIDEBAR at Whiskey Row is located inside the beautiful Whiskey Row Lofts. This historic limestone structure was originally built in 1877 by the L&N Railroad to serve as their headquarters. Our 16 foot ceilings, 11 foot windows, and convenient location under the shadow of the 2nd street bridge makes SIDEBAR at Whiskey Row the obvious choice for a Bourbon, Burger or Beer and a great time regardless of the occasion! We offer the ideal atmosphere for your next lunch, dinner, or end to any evening.

      We traveled the country in search of a unique hamburger blend. We tasted and cooked numerous blends, before we developed our own, hand-crafted proprietary blend of Certified Angus Beef®, mixing Chuck “imparting hints of New York Strip”, Brisket “providing a buttery flavor” and Short Rib “adding a sweet balance” to create a burger experience often associated with the best steak houses in America. This is not your ordinary hamburger! There are no trimmings, added fats, fillers or binders in our product. These are facts that we are proud to stand behind.
