Tartan House will be a cozy cocktail and whiskey lounge, serving its patrons both classic and house cocktails. The bar will also offer a carefully curated selection of whiskies, both American and global. With a special focus on Scotch whisky, Tartan House will strive to offer the widest selection of Scotch whisky in Louisville. 

Tartan House owners include Jeff Knott, Peyton Beall and Kyle Beall. With a combined total of over 35 years in the industry, Tartan House owners and their experienced staff want to offer a unique and specialized experience. Their goal is to offer expertly crafted cocktails, alongside a wide selection of whiskey, indoor and outdoor seating, curated whiskey tastings, private events and more.

All three have ties to the New Orleans area, and have worked with interior designers Sydney Alvey and Skyler Williams of Around House Studio to create an atmosphere for patrons that reflects New Orleans charm with a hint of Scottish flair. 

“Louisville has an incredible amount of talent in the hospitality and drinks industry, and we look forward to progressing this even further with what our patrons will experience at Tartan House,” said Knott, bar manager of Tartan House.

“We are elated to join the Louisville hospitality industry as Tartan House and share our passion for whiskey and cocktails with our patrons,” said Peyton Beall, hospitality and general manager of Tartan House and managing partner of Slainte Hospitality. “This is a dream of ours that we finally are seeing come to fruition after many years of planning and work, and we can’t wait to share it with the community.”

“American whiskey and Scotch whisky share a storied connection that we’re excited to highlight at Tartan House,” said Kyle Beall, hospitality and board member of Tartan House and managing partner of Slainte Hospitality. “Louisville’s passion for spirits makes it the perfect place to celebrate that connection.”

Tartan House plans to open this July.
