Bud's Tavern

Hours may not be accurate


Bud’s is a relatively unfamiliar neighborhood joint, but it’s south end location should not mean this classic tavern goes overlooked. With cold beer, plenty of liquor and solid comfort food, Bud’s is a shining star in Shively’s cap and plays host to a variety of live music acts. Between that and the game-day drink specials, we can’t think of a better reason to head south on Dixie Highway.
