(PRESS RELEASE) Already a Louisville favorite since its opening this past spring, Watch Hill Proper Bourbon Bar and Kitchen recently announced a kitchen and menu expansion that gives the public a more upscale dining experience. The restaurant now offers a full dinner menu designed by Executive Chef Michael Crouch featuring more of the Chef’s innovative, modern cuisine with a classical French influence. The expanded kitchen space, which doubled its original size from 500 sq ft to 1,000 sq ft, will also allow for the addition of Sunday Brunch service beginning later this fall.
Since opening in April 2022, Watch Hill Proper’s American whiskey selections have grown to over 1600 unique bottles, making it the largest American Whiskey bar in the world. The restaurant is on pace to host over 200 public and private events this year, which include bourbon and wine tastings, meet and greets with bourbon master distillers, themed dinners led by Chef Michael Crouch, and the Fred Minnick dinner series. The restaurant also offers space available for private events such as rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, and corporate events.
Watch Hill Proper will now be open Tuesday-Thursday from 4:00 pm-11:00 pm and Friday-Saturday 4:00pm-Midnight. The kitchen will close one hour before the bar closes. Currently closed: Sunday and Monday; however, look for updates in the fall with the rollout of Brunch service.
