Whether it’s an upscale meal, quick bar bite, local brew, unique cocktail, top of the line decadent dessert or a shopping spree, you can find it all on Frankfort Avenue. You can have the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie in all of Kentucky at Please & Thank You, or you can get dressed up and take in a delicious meal at Varanese, Le Moo, North End Café and many more. If you want to meet up with friends, the food and drinks at The Hub, Silver Dollar or Bourbons Bistro are the places for you. No matter which direction you walk, the food is phenomenal.
Crescent Hill has a unique identity. If you are in the neighborhood in October, Halloween Avenue is a multi-block event that is a must visit event for residents throughout the city. Every year the entire street of Hillcrest goes all out with decorations and invites families to take a stroll and experience the spectacle. It has become such a wildly popular tradition that it has been mentioned in quite a few national sources. If Halloween isn’t your thing, stop in on the last Friday of every month for the F.A.T. Trolley Hop where you will get free parking and transportation as the trolly runs you along Frankfort Avenue and Cannons Lane. Restaurants and shops have special sales and live music!
You can also take a stroll around the Louisville Water Company Crescent Hill Reservoir and Gatehouse to have a relaxing afternoon while learning more about the neighborhood and its history. The American Printing House for the Blind is also a powerful place to visit while in the neighborhood. You can learn about the production of braille publications and even see Hellen Keller’s bible.
