Celebrate Bastille Day in Louisville July 14th

Being in Louisville on July 14 has a few unique possibilities for transforming the day from a normal humdrum Monday to a Monday Bastille Day celebration to remember. Bastille Day is what The French National Day is called in English speaking countries. The holiday commemorates the beginning of the French Revolution and the storming of the Bastille.

La Coop Offering Bastille Day Dinner

Residents of Louisville selected La Coop: Bistro and Vins as Louisville's Best New Restaurant of 2013. If you haven't tried it yet, Bastille Day gives you a good reason. La Coop has planned a Bastille Day family-style French dinner starting at 5:30 on July 14. The restaurant is known for being a rustic-chic spot with a Southern-style French bistro menu, unique beers, wine and craft cocktails.

Bastille Day

La Coop makes it known that the definition of bistro is a small or unpretentious restaurant. They are located at 732 E. Market Street. Feasting is a common French National Day practice, and letting La Coop do the cooking and clean up gives you one more reason to celebrate.

Dust Off Your Guillotine and Marie Antoinette Wig

Following dinner a nice walk or short drive of a mile and a half will take you to the to Louisville Metro Hall, formerly the Jefferson County Courthouse. A statue of Louis XVI, after whom Louisville was named, stands on its property at the corner of Sixth and Jefferson Streets across from Louisville City Hall. If you are not already knowledgeable on the topic, a quick French history refresher will reveal that King Louis XVI was executed during the French Revolution leaving Louisville with the distinction of having been named after a beheaded member of the French monarchy. The statue should provide a nice photo opportunity for the occasion especially with some creative thinking and a prop or two!
