The Bar at Fort Nelson is located on the second floor of Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery. Michter’s sits across the street from the Louisville Slugger Museum & Bat Factory and down the block from the Frazier History Museum, which has been designated the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® Welcome Center and serves as the official starting point of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®.
The Bar at Fort Nelson features classic cocktails curated by cocktail historian and author David Wondrich as well as modern creations by the bar team.
The Bar features glassware from U.K. producer John Jenkins and an ice program with machines from top global equipment purveyors, including Clinebell, Hoshizaki and Scotsman.
“Our hope is that guests will always find something to enjoy, be it a well-balanced version of a familiar favorite (like our classic Rye Manhattan) or their first experience with a multi-layered milk punch (like our bar manager Dante Wheat’s self-developed Long Walks in the Rain).”
~ Matt Magliocco VP Michter’s Distillery
