What’s in a Namesake?

Paying homage to The Grady Hotel’s history of defying convention, Wild Swann takes its name after J.B. Wilder who produced medicinal bourbon here in 1883 and the Swann-Abram Hat Company, a maker of iconic Kentucky Derby hats, who set up shop here in the 1920s.

Savored From the Source

Our flavors may span your entire spectrum of taste, but our ingredients are sourced only from this side of the Ohio River. From our spirits to our produce, we’re Kentucky-made, through and through.

Elixirs To Lift The Spirits

Here, the only thing stronger than our Louisville pride is the proof of our spirits. Wash down your bread pudding with a swing of bourbon, or spice up your aperitif with vermouth and bitters.

Private Affairs

Gather your closest confidantes in an upscale atmosphere that captures the true spirit of Kentucky’s ingenuity. Set inside a cherished downtown landmark, make delicious food (but mostly booze) the centerpiece of your special occasion.
