15 Hours in Louisville, Kentucky

In and out in less than a day.

Landed in Louisville, Kentucky (my first visit!) at 2am. A 15 minute drive to 21c Museum Hotel
…literally a museum and hotel all in one…
…with an extra dose of hipster. Copies of Edible Louisville on the desk, TCHO chocolate in bed and MALIN+GOETZ bath products. Am obsessed with hotel bath products (not to mention hotels in general)…and pretty sure I’m not the only one ;)
Early morning wake up! Proof on Main is downstairs and breakfast starts at 7am.
Eggs Benedict and a cider and blueberry smoothie for the ride.
It’s a 1.5 hour drive to Loretto, Kentucky (population: 450), home of Maker’s Mark Distillery. Here to do some research for an article. Huge kudos to my driver from Mint Julep Tours who was extraordinarily kind and knowledgeable. If anyone is visiting Kentucky and needs a driver/guide, email me and I’ll gladly share his information.

Three hours later and then it’s back to NYC.
