LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Three new businesses are moving near the KFC Yum Center. The Al J. Schneider Company announced it will open Down One Bourbon Bar, 321deli, and 2 Dips and a Shake Ice Cream Shop at the corner of Third Street and Main Street.
The new locally-owned restaurants will open starting in mid-February with Down One Bourbon Bar. 321deli says it will have the look and feel of a New York deli with the charm of the south, and 2 Dips and a Shake will offer ice cream from The Comfy Cow.
The three new businesses will be just down from street level in the company's Waterside Building.
"We had recently been to New York," explains the president of the Schneider Company, Mary Moseley, "and they have a lot of this these types of stores where you descend down to shops and restaurants so we decided to do that here."
While the cost of the investment is not being disclosed, it continues the Schneider Company's commitment to downtown that began when Moseley's late father, Al Schneider, built the Galt House in the early 1970's when no one else was willing to invest in downtown.
"There is lots of activity along Main Street," says Moseley, "especially after the games and concerts, so we want to be part of that as people travel back and forth from here to Fourth Street and up and down Main Street."
30 people will work at the downtown Louisville businesses.
