SHOPPING SPOT: 3-WAY TIE between Bardstown Road, The Summit, and Westport Village.

Bardstown Road

This eating, drinking, and shopping strip is the place for locals and visitors to explore to find a little bit of everything. "Bardstown Road is known to locals as the place to find happening hang-outs, clothing, art, food and drink plus have fun walking from place to place exploring all the local goodness!” says Caroline Knop of Simply PR. There are shops such as The Leatherhead that have been around for decades and new shops that are continuously popping up, which only adds to the charm. Find staple restaurants like The Bristol Bar & Grille to Back Door to the new Lil Cheezers offering delicious cheese sandwiches to Big Bar, Nowhere Bar and MIXER for the best nightlife variety.
