Sample our Classic Bourbon Cocktails
Living up to the name, The Bourbon Manor, our Bed and Breakfast has playfully named the guest rooms after classic bourbon cocktails. Tour each spacious, antique-appointed room and choose your favorite. You’ll have pleasant dreams in rooms named Sweet Old Fashioned, Southern Love and Hotty Toddy, among others. And that’s not where the fun stops! Guests can sample those very cocktails at The Bunghole Bourbon Bar & Lounge, just steps from their room.
Our talented mixologists are masters of classic bourbon cocktails like the Sweet Old Fashioned, Mint Julep and Sazerac. Any chilly night calls for a warming Hot Toddy; it might just be the cure for the common cold. Our Honeymoon drink is as special as the room with its name; the Manhattan Honeymoon Hideaway. A bit of honey, a cherry, and a twist of orange makes for a perfectly balanced take on this cocktail standard. The complex flavors of peach, amaretto, orange and cherry come together in our Southern Love drink, while our iconic drinks like Scarlet Starlet, Debutante’s Dream, and Magnolia Maiden are refreshingly easy to drink. For an unusually delicious twist, try the Bourbon Smokehouse. This bourbon cocktail is mixed with honey and lemon, then topped with a crispy strip of Applewood-smoked country bacon.
The lounge also offers an impressive list of bourbons, whiskeys and ryes to sample, and offer flights of each. Wine and beer lovers will also find a great selection to sample, available by the glass or bottle. And of course, we have a choice of several craft beers as well. Our guests love the private lounge at our wooded hideaway location. After a lingering over excellent cocktails and plenty of laughter and intimate romance, return to your sophisticated and relaxing suite. Reserve your romantic guest room today for an unforgettable bourbon escape to Bardstown.
