Of course, putting old buildings, especially ones with this much history is always a great alternative to tearing them down. This could become a destination area for locals and travelers alike.
Last May, 2012, there was some demolition going on along Whiskey Row with the back portions of two buildings, determined to be beyond saving, being torn down.
As of March 7, 2013, plans for the buildings included entertainment options and apartments now that stabilization is complete. Two of the building on the west end are slated for multi-use development including 35 apartments and four restaurants: Bearno's by the Bridge, Sol Aztecas, Doc. Crow's Southern Smokehouse & Raw Bar and the Troll Pun Under the Bridge.
The Sidebar Icehouse and Grill is set to open in April.
Whiskey Row is five buildings in the 100 block of Main Street in downtown Louisville.
