There’s no denying the significance of bourbon in Louisville, from its economic impact to bourbon-themed culture and events.

Sara Havens covers spirits as The Bar Belle, in addition to her role as Insider Louisville’s Culture Editor. To get out and experience some of the cultural and economic significance of bourbon in Louisville, we invite you to join The Bar Belle and Insider Louisville for a new series of happy hours at various spots along the Urban Bourbon Trail.

Our first stop will be on Thursday, April 11, at Taj Louisville in NuLu.

Taj will be offering up $4 Four Roses Old Fashioneds and $1 off craft draft beers from 5-7 p.m.

(Plus, since it’s Mint Julep Month, if you take a selfie with a julep and use #MintJulepMonth on social media, you can pick up a free julep cup courtesy of Louisville Tourism.)

Bourbon is optional, but socializing is mandatory.
