LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new Mexican restaurant is set open inside the former Calvary Lutheran Church on Bardstown Road. 

Noche Mexican BBQ will have a Day of the Dead theme that encourages gathering with family and friends.

"Our theme is the day of the dead, so it's just a celebration of life, a celebration of eating together with the people you love and commemorating the people you lost," Noche supervisor, Emily Perry said. 

"We wanted to combine some great things that I had back home in Texas. So, being Hispanic, we would do barbecues all the time, but we would smoke meat, brisket or pork, definitely ribs," said Noche's operating partner, Aaron Diaz. "But, all of the sides are Hispanic sides. So, rice and beans, chips and salsa, guacamole."

The restaurant has two floors for dining and a bar. 

"Everything is house made down to the ginger beer at the bar," Perry said. "Everything is from scratch. It's more authentic than what you would get at your basic Mexican food restaurant. I think people really getting to experience the culture will be really neat through the food."

Noche Mexican BBQ is scheduled to open on August 3.
