Historic Brown Hotel’s Roof Garden reopens in Louisville
Posted April 1, 2017
For the first time since the 1970s, The Brown Hotel’s Roof Garden is open. The historic hotel’s 16th floor space, which originally opened in 1928 and hosted hundreds of lavish dance parties before its closing in 1971, underwent six months of structural and aesthetic updates including lush landscaping and stunning copper and wrought iron accents. The long-forgotten venue will be used for private functions accommodating standing receptions of up to 300 guests and seated dinners for 250. Atop one of Louisville’s tallest buildings, The Brown Hotel’s Roof Garden offers a clear and picturesque view of the city.

“The excitement around reopening this storied space has been overwhelming,” said general manager Brad Walker. “We are thrilled to explore the endless options for parties and special events in this iconic venue.”

The Roof Garden was billed in the 1930s as “the most beautiful spot in town… above the city noises where the air is pure and the breezes cool.” From 85 cent luncheons on the ‘open terrace’ to holiday proms and officers’ balls, the rooftop was a place to see and be seen for many years. It was said to have a “gorgeous view of the city and surrounding country that lends a distinctive out-of-doors atmosphere.”

Wedding ceremonies, business luncheons and other custom events can be booked in the 3600 square foot roof-top area. The Roof Garden is also available as an add-on space for gatherings big and small hosted in the Crystal Ballroom, Bluegrass Room and other Brown Hotel meeting places. The hotel will host occasional pop-up dining events and live music nights on the Roof Garden in warmer months.
