Eat Like a New Yorker August 8

New York City is famous for its street food, but you don’t have to go that far to find delicious eats from various vendors. Louisville has a pretty nice street food scene, too, and you can taste it for yourself on August 8. Go to the Phoenix Hill Tavern to enjoy food, games and fun for the whole family.

Eating Local

Live music will play outside while you shop through different food trucks all parked outside Phoenix Hill Tavern. This is a well-known Louisville nightspot in the Phoenix Hill neighborhood, and this is a family-friendly event. Games help keep everyone busy, and there’s a beer garden area for the adults.

The event begins at 5 pm and goes until the food trucks close down for the night. Black Rock Grille, Boss Hog BBQ, Holy Mole, Longshot Lobsta, Traveling Kitchen and many others will gather to give you a wide variety of stuff to eat. The beer garden will feature local beers, but you’ll find the name-brand labels as well.

Show up early, and you can spend some time exploring Phoenix Hill before the food is served.

Around the Hill

Phoenix Hill is just east of downtown Louisville, close to all the city’s major attractions. Phoenix Hill has its own unique character and a sort of self-sustaining charm. In the community, you’ll find a medical district, arts district, many small businesses, even an entertainment district. Phoenix Hill has its own historic district where many gorgeous homes are located. Teddy Roosevelt once spoke in the park next to the Phoenix Hill Brewery, a building that was closed in 1919 due to Prohibition.

The community has a thriving neighborhood association that has helped bring lots of new homes to the area. The association has created a sense of community in the Phoenix Hill area, where locals enjoy regular events and activities. In additional to other events, the neighborhood association hosts a regular farmer’s market where locals can purchase fresh food.

Visit Phoenix Hill in August to see unique and historic Louisville homes, and taste local cuisine in a relaxed, fun setting. No matter when you go, it’s always a good time to see a new Louisville neighborhood.
