Each progressive food and cocktail tour in the Southern Supper Series explores eclectic neighborhoods, hidden gems and top chef’s creations from around Louisville.
Guests visit three destinations during each tour for a course paired with a crafted cocktail at each stop, all based on a common theme. A Mint Julep Tours guide will lead the fun, escorting guests on their dining journey and sharing local insight while they travel. The cost is $119 per person and includes three dishes with paired cocktails, guided transportation, and tax and restaurant gratuity at each venue.
For all Southern Supper Series events, additional alcohol may be purchased by guests at each stop. Adult beverages and small coolers are also permitted on the Mint Julep Tours vehicle. Guests may be required to show ID. Mint Julep Tours encourages guests to drink responsibly.
