Jockey Silks


Given the sheer size of the Galt House Hotel, it’s easy to see why their small but impressively stocked bourbon bar, Jockey Silks, could be overlooked by locals. Yet there it is, tucked within the depths of this convention hotel, bartenders just waiting to pour you one of the over 150 bourbons on hand. The next time you are downtown, brave the throngs of convention-goers crowding the lobby and make a beeline for Jockey Silks. Order a flight and relish in the glory that is Kentucky’s native spirit.
