Downtown Dialogue - What's Up Downtown


Drew Honness

The Man Behind the Cow
Sweet Cow owner Drew Honness loves ice cream, and it shows. Sweet Cow’s ice cream is home made and all natural and all moolicious. Drew’s favorite? Oatmeal Cookie. Belly up to the bovine at 637 Front Street, next to Lucky Pie.


Downtown Dog of the Month
If you find yourself at South and Jefferson, look in the yard on the NW corner to see if Shiloh is available. The big Shepherd mix is a really sweet pooch and loves to be scratched behind the ears.

The Rex Rooftop Deck

Downtown Restaurant Update Update

Two restaurants in the 800 block of Main Street are closed while they are being... updated. Here’s the latest:

The Rex
The Alley Cat has gone the way of the Sabertooth, but the next phase in the building’s evolution looks, well, amazing. The revamped Cat will be called The Rex, in homage to the historic Rex Theatre, a Downtown Louisville landmark at the same location from 1920 to 1978. What’s cool about The Rex in addition to the history, new look, and new menu? Two words; rooftop deck. Now that is going to be fun.

Infrastructure issues have required extensive maintenance to the personable Marketplace eatery. The good news is that B.O.B.S. is taking the opportunity to apply a little Feng Shui to the interior. B.O.B.S. and Feng Shui in the same sentence? Whoa. Look for Bob and Jorge to be back behind the grill before Spring.

Vie Vie Luxe Changing Name

What’s in a name? Well, for San Francisco boutique VieVie, apparently competition. Vie Vie Luxe owners Irene Oliver and Kara Reese have decided not to waste energy with the paranoid San Franciscan and will change their name to Ville de Luxe starting this month. C’est la Vie.
