New Safety Precautions at Garage Bar

For the safety and wellness of both our guests and our teammates, we’ve put together some new safety precautions.  We can’t wait to welcome you and ask that you follow our guidelines out of respect for your fellow patrons and the hard-working GB team!

-All guests will be greeted upon arrival by a staff member who will do a quick health screening, which may include a temperature check, and then seat you and your party. Please note there is no open seating at this time.

-Teammates are required to wear a mask at all times, and guests are urged to wear one while moving about public space.

-Seating at the bar is closed at this time.

-In order to meet space requirements and capacity limits, we can accommodate groups of six or less to dine together.

-In addition to our normal menu, we are now offering a curbside “Toolkit menu” featuring many of our menu favorites, and to-go cocktail kits!

-Furry friends are, of course, still welcome.

Garage Bar takes great pride in being an inclusive and welcoming place for our Louisville community.  We can’t wait to welcome you back.

New Menu Items at Garage Bar

Looking for a flavorful pick-me-up? Try Garage Bar’s Bulgur Salad; a nutritious whole grain tossed with watercress and our house-made citrus vinaigrette. To complement the nutty flavors of the bulgur we char carrots with local honey from Hartford, Kentucky and lay the salad on top of a Greek yogurt that we load up with freshly cracked black pepper.  Veggie lovers will also enjoy our Oven Roasted Beets, slowly roasted in our wood burning oven and tossed with parsley, shallots, and a touch of red wine vinegar. A dollop of Kenny’s Cheese fromage blanc out of Austin, Kentucky, adds welcome decadence to this earthy dish. For those in search of something with a little more meat on its crust, we’ve got you covered. Our Sausage Pie is carefully crafted with a pesto pantesco base (a light, bright tomato pesto that contains garlic, shallots, capers, and mint) and Tutto Calabrian chilies for a spicy kick. Fior de latte mozzarella is layered on with our savory sausage, made with Woodland Farms bison from Goshen, Kentucky that’s been gently cooked and spiced in-house. Once the pizza emerges from the oven, it’s topped with shaved pecorino for added sharpness. This aromatic pizza is every bit as flavorful as it smells, but you don’t have to take our word for it.

Each spirit in this four course dinner will be paired with dishes created by executive chef Richard Sible, including a Coffee Braised Pork Belly main course and a Chocolate Mousse with bourbon cherries to top it all off.
