A Louisville city retreat serving up contemporary comfort with rich heritage – and a dash of Southern charm

A boutique escape steeped in the spirit of Louisville, Kentucky, The Grady blends history with modern luxury. It’s a hip, upscale retreat that’s perfect as a place to relax and indulge – and is also the gateway to a unique and charming city.  Originally an apothecary, then home to the milliner who made the Kentucky Derby’s iconic hats, The Grady’s historic Main Street building brims with references to its colourful heritage.

From its restored revival-style façade to the reclaimed wooden ceilings in its rooms and suites, you’ll find nods to The Grady’s story everywhere you look. Guests are encouraged to discover the history of the city through a series of sweet surprises and good luck charms. Wrap yourself in robes reminiscent of Louisville’s own Muhammed Ali.

When it comes to dining, sit back and soak up the fine southern hospitality of The Grady’s restaurant, The Wild Swann, where delicious small plates are accompanied by expertly mixed cocktails. End your evenings by the fire, or in the library sipping a signature ‘Old Fashioned’. By day, explore the scenic streets and myriad charms of the ‘northernmost city in the South’.

Fall in love with Louisville

There’s far more than Derby and Mint Juleps to Kentucky’s largest city. Known as the ‘most Southern city in the North’ – or vice versa – Louisville combines Southern sensibilities (and excellent bourbon) with art, culture, museums and theatre. Spot the Fleur de Lis around the city as you walk its historic streets. Try a signature ‘Hot Brown’ sandwich. And admire the beautiful façades of Museum Row. The Grady is a perfect home-from-home for your explorations.

Unique experience in a great location

Wild Swann for small bites was amazing. Amber at the front of the house and Zae (valet) could not have been more friendly and accommodating.

Food And Drinks

Pull up a seat at The Wild Swann bar and whisper the words ‘Swann Song’ to its in-the-know bartenders, and you might just be let into some secrets of the city. It’s all part of the charm of The Grady’s stylish dining spot, the place to people-watch while enjoying small plates and craft cocktails. Don’t leave without trying an expertly mixed ‘Old Fashioned’, made with Louisville’s signature bourbon.

Guests enter a world of hand-craft beverages- fastidious service and small plates.
