The Back Door Bar & Grille is located at 1250 Bardstown Road, adjacent to the Mid City Mall in the heart of the picturesque Highlands neighborhood in Louisville, KY. For driving directions, please try Mapquest.
As a reviewer in LEO noted, the Back Door is "one of Louisville’s favorite after-work, meet–my-friends, meet-strangers, game-of-pool, bag-of-wings, one-more-stop-before-home watering holes."
The Back Door is owned and operated by John Dant (below) and Mike Ewing (below right), who purchased the building from Tom and Linda Clemons in 1987. The 5,000-square-foot bar and lounge previously served as a warehousing and storage facility for the nearby A&P Grocery.
Our bar staff includes Bar Manager Carrie, Dave, Marianne, Cindy, Chris, Troy and Kat. The kitchen staff includes Chef Chris, Scotty, Brad, Tim and Jessica. We take great pride in the fact that Carrie, Dave, Cindy and Marianne have been with The Back Door for over 20 years.
The owners and employees take great pride in the Back Door's reputation of being one of the friendliest bars in Louisville. Long-time customers, newcomers and out-of-town visitors can relax and mingle in a casual and cordial atmosphere.
