Meat Louisville, Named as Top 50 Bars in the World

Meet Louisville Bar

According to the Courier-Journal:

The Butchertown bar Meat has been named one of the “world’s 50 best bars” by Drinks International, a beverage industry journal based in London, England.

Meat, which has the vibe of a 1920s speakeasy, opened in November 2011 above the Blind Pig restaurant at 1076 E. Washington St.

“For starters, the name of this place is awesome – unless you’re a vegetarian. But let’s pretend no one is and just salivate a bit,” Lucy Britner wrote in Drinks International. “As with any self-respecting Kentucky drinking den, bourbon makes a healthy contribution to the Prohibition-style venue.”

Meat ranks 39 on the list, which includes bars from cities like New York, London, Sydney and Los Angeles.
