LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new bar is set to open this week on the third floor of the Copper & Kings distillery.

The bar is called Alex&nder. The space was previously used for tastings and as an event space.

The owner says the goal of the bar is to teach people how to best enjoy the distillery's brandy and gin all while enjoying a view of downtown Louisville.

"We wanted it to have an international elegance and sophistication without being unfriendly. With American hospitality, but with the style and sophistication of an international environment," said owner Joe Heron.

Alex&nder has a soft opening scheduled for Wednesday, and will open to the public on Thursday. The bar's hours will be Wednesday to Sunday from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m.
