If you’ve explored our website lately, you may have noticed that we’ve added a new tour option! For the rest of the summer, we’re taking advantage of the extended Friday hours at some of our favorite distilleries.
Whether you’re traveling to Lexington for the weekend, or you’re a local looking for a fun way to kick off your weekend, our Friday Night Special is definitely the way to go! When you book with us for a Friday night, you get to choose from one of the distilleries that’s open late (Maker’s Mark, Town Branch, and Woodford Reserve) for a tour and tasting, and then we’ll coordinate the rest of your evening in downtown Lexington with dinner reservations and stops at some of our favorite local bars.
Last night, we drove around a lovely couple that wanted to go to Woodford Reserve. During the summer months, Woodford has their Friday Night Live event, which was the perfect way to spend a nice summer evening. They keep their doors open late for their distillery tours and tastings, so you still get the full experience that you would get if you visited during regular hours. However, you have the option of hanging out after the tour to enjoy cocktails and live music on the patio of the Visitor’s Center. They also do a dinner buffet every week, and our group absolutely loved the food that was served. Woodford’s Friday Night Live is the perfect way to experience a Friday night in bourbon country! If you’re interested, make sure to book soon, because it’s only offered through September.
After enjoying Friday Night Live, we took our group to downtown Lexington for a cocktail at Lockbox, which is the bar connected to the 21c Museum Hotel. The hotel acts as an art gallery, and it has a very modern vibe. The bar area was great with lots of seating, and the bar staff was great! Our group absolutely loved their cocktails, which were unique and very reasonably priced. We highly recommend a stop there if you’re in downtown Lex! We thoroughly enjoyed our Friday night experience this week, and we can’t wait for more to come!
