Presidents James Monroe and Andrew Jackson, John James Audubon, Cassius Marcellus Clay, and Lewis and Clark—among others—all passed through Locust Grove.

The bar is a 1920's authentically restored bar and eatery featuring an expansive bourbon collection. Cocktails are made from Kentucky limestone water dispensed from old-fashioned seltzer bottles. The expansive mahogany bar is comfortable and the bartenders provide excellent customer service. The bourbon collection was huge and priced from reasonable to a shot for $200 plus! The Old Seelbach Bar feels like stepping into a scene from The Great Gatsby --many scenes in the movie were actually filmed at the Seelbach , which is fitting since the Seelbach Hotel literally served as inspiration for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece.
