I like OKBB a lot and went for a pre-dinner drink this past weekend. They had an AMAZING selection of bourbon (surprise), but I didn't love the feel of the place. It's small and a narrow bar area. Felt a little uncomfortable and not like a good place to hang out. Given that, I sat outside and really enjoyed the drink I had, so it wasn't a big issue. If I had sat inside, I probably wouldn't have rated it a 4.

Oh, my my-this establishment is fantastic.

The knowledgeable staff have always been willing to share their wealth of wisdom and entertain with their drink-prep abilities.

Go. Drink. Be Merry.

I like the laid-back decor of this place. It doesn't try too hard. If you don't like bourbon, let the bartenders know and they'll make you something to ease you into it. They're not judgy at all!

Great little bar in Kentucky. Massive bourbon selection but a full bar as well. Probably not a bar where I'd hang all night, but definitely a great place to get one or two pre or post-dinner drinks.

Next time you're in Mainstrasse, go to the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar. The bourbon selection is unparalleled in town. The space is small and intimate, which can be a bummer on weekends. This is a great spot for a desert drink after dinner elsewhere. I have to recommend trying a whiskey sour. They actually make it with an egg white. Check it out!
