Bet You Thought You Knew Lexington, Kentucky

We’re a city that thrives on defying expectations. If you thought we only served fried chicken, that we’re “just a college town,” or that we’re nothing but horse farms, then you need to take a closer Look at Lexington. 



Bet You Thought We Weren’t This Close

Turns out we’re just a short drive away from several states and major cities.

Bet You Thought We Only Served Fried Chicken

We do in fact make some delicious fried chicken, but that’s just the beginning of what you’ll find here. There’s a spot in town for whatever you’re craving, whether it’s Peruvian, Thai, or Mediterranean—just to name a few!

Bourbon Land Logo

Just below Lexington’s surface there’s a limestone shelf, and the natural spring water that passes through it gives this place life. It grows meadows of lush Kentucky bluegrass, nourishes the world’s fastest horses, and it gives our native spirit an unmatched purity that will keep you coming back for more. 



Looking For More Than Horses & Bourbon?

While we may be famous for our world-class equine and bourbon experiences, there’s so much more to do here. Take a look for yourself!
