740 Front is the last saloon out of the original thirteen that lined on Louisville’s Front Street. Together with the famous Del Monte Bar, made of cherry, birch, and mahogany cut to fit design, the saloon gained its popularity because of its very rich history.
Each artifact and original material has been repurposed to be part of the renovated and restored establishment- each with a story to tell.
