Louisville's Acclaimed Speakeasy Hell or High Water Unveils Fall Cocktail Menu

On the stronger, more spirit-driven “Hell” side is the Highland Frost with Laphroaig (Scottish Whisky), Absinthe, Cocchi (an aperitif wine), Pear, Gentian bitters, and simple syrup. If you’re looking for something on the sweet side, consider the “Perfect Storm” with Rum Blanc, Ristretto (short shot of coffee), Bergamotto (citrus liqueur), Campari, Fernet (bitters), Orange Juice, and Cinnamon.

About Whiskey Row

The one block-long entertainment district in the 100 block of W. Main St., and Washington St to the north. Once used as offices and warehouses for the bourbon and tobacco industries. The collection of Revivalist and Chicago School-style buildings, many with cast-iron storefronts, were built between 1852 and 1905. The buildings were almost demolished by developers in 2011, but an agreement between the city, developers, and preservationists saved most of them. Various restaurants, bars, an urban distillery, shops, and several new hotels are among the attractions. The proximity to the KFC Yum! Center makes it a vibrant area during events at the arena.
