Louisville Whiskey Row building being turned into Number Fifteen bar

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A historic building in downtown Louisville is on the verge of becoming an entertainment venue and bar.

Construction on Number Fifteen at 121 W. Main St. on Whiskey Row has begun, according to a spokesperson for The Numbers Holding Co. LLC, the owner of the building.

The Colorado-based bar and entertainment company announced in May 2021 that it had purchased the six-story WL Weller building for $ 3.65 million. The venue will bring in craft distillers and brewers, musicians and chefs from across Kentucky, the company said. It is set to open in spring 2023.

The name of the venue, Number Fifteen, is a reference to Kentucky being the 15th state to join the union.

Numbers Holding Co. CEO Spencer Fronk said the start of construction brings the company “one step closer to opening and completing the revitalization of the last undeveloped iconic building on historic Whiskey Row.”
