Fourth Street Live! is a 350,000-square-foot (33,000 m2)entertainment and retail complex located on 4th Street, between Liberty and Muhammad Ali Boulevard, in Downtown Louisville, Kentucky. It is owned and was developed by the Cordish Company; it was designed by Louisville architects, Bravura Corporation. Fourth Street Live! first opened to the public on June 1, 2004, and all stores were finally completed for the grand opening on October 30, 2004. City planners hoped that the district would attract further commercial business development while providing an attractive entertainment venue for the city's hotel and tourist business as well as the local population.
Restaurants and entertainment venues in the complex include Hard Rock Cafe, Red Star Tavern, TGI Friday's, Friday's Rocks!, Sully's Irish Pub, Lucky Strike Lanes (bowling alley and restaurant), a British style restaurant The Pub, and the first-ever Maker's Mark Bourbon House & Lounge. Fourth Street Live! also has a wide variety of bars and nightclubs including Howl at the Moon, the Felt billiard lounge, Saddle Ridge and Tengo Sed Cantina.
A mall-style food court is also located in the complex with restaurants like Wendy's, Cold Stone Creamery, and Subway. There are also several retail stores such as Borders Books and Music, Fashion Shop, GameStop, and T-Mobile.
Traffic on 4th Street through the complex is often open, but closed for continued construction work on the street and venues, and for large public gatherings such as music concerts and other events.
