Find out why Mint on Mellwood make a fantastic event space

“We hosted our son’s college graduation party here and had an A+ experience and rave reviews from all of our guests. Lisa Higgins and her team exceeded all our expectations in communicating, planning and assisting us for this special occasion. Their suggestions and experience in hosting such events made it easy for us and the location is ideal for access from all surrounding areas. We had 80+ guests and the atmosphere made for a fun night for all. As their slogan states, “the purpose of fun is to have some,” and we all did just that. I highly recommend to utilize their transportation services which made for a safe trip for all. We have dealt with other venues before and rate Mint on Mellwood a 5 star experience and will look there first for future events.”

“We had a fabulous rehearsal dinner at the Mint Julep Tours facility for 70 people and the atmosphere was amazing. The flow of the space worked so well. Plenty of room for cocktails, sit down dinner, and socializing. The decor highlighting regional points of interest made for a special backdrop. The lighting really set the mood. One of the most enticing aspects was how easy it was to work with the Mint Julep staff, they were very accommodating. This is a perfect venue for a social or corporate gathering. In fact, someone that attended the dinner has already booked an event there.”

“Mint on Mellwood has been the perfect home for our annual bourbon charity event and dinner. With crowds ranging from 75-125 people, our Mint Julep hosts have been amazing at finding the perfect balance of making the space intimate without feeling crowded.  Our attendees, caterers, and VIPs have all raved about the venue and felt extremely taken care of. Conveniently located, with unbeatable staff, the Bourbon Crusaders are proud to call Mint on Mellwood our Kentucky home.”
