Have a Cup of Coffee at Vu This February
This February, break out of your usual routines and go see something new. Well, maybe something old. Go have a cup of coffee at Vu this February, and go see one of Louisville’s most unique boutique hotels.
The Vu Lounge
Vu used to be a tobacco warehouse. Louisville has a long history with tobacco, an industry that truly helped build the city and the state of Kentucky. But today, Vu is a gorgeous boutique hotel. The ornate decor is bright and eye-catching, and there are ornate details everywhere you look.
Stop into the Lobby Bar to have a cup of coffee and get a look at the surroundings. Vu is at 822 S. Floyd Street. That’s in the heart of Smoketown, a neighborhood named for all the industry that once existed here. Today, this part of Louisville is full of historic architecture and family homes. Go a few blocks away from Vu to discover Shelby Park, and you’ll discover lots of beautiful houses and hidden treasures.
Drink in the Sights of Shelby Park
Shelby Park is built around the actual Shelby Park at the center of the neighborhood. It was named for Kentucky's first governor, and this neighborhood dates back to the early 1900s. There are still homes standing here from those early days, adorable bungalows and colorful two-story houses that still have original hardwood floors, high ceilings and hand-wrought details that are a hundred years old or more. Shelby Park is full of one-of-a-kind attractions, restaurants and places to go, including the Shelby Park Community Center.
This pretty neighborhood is changing every day, with more and more properties here being refurbished and remodeled. Homes in Shelby Park have been updated for the modern era, though the historic details and incredible architecture still remain. See the homes in Shelby Park, and you'll see lots of reasons why you might want to live here with your family.
