Have you ever been to Paris? Enjoyed an espresso on the patio at a small cafe where the waiters knew their regulars and time seemed to stop? It is that escape that many Americans crave, but are too busy to find the time to experience. An escape where you relax with a cold drink and listen to music among the company of neighbors and friends.
Historic Downtown Louisville may not be Paris, but it is a Colorado gem that sparkles all the same. It is an escape from a city's fast pace and a long stressful work week. Surrounded by 100 year old wood buildings, unique shops and historic restaurants, Louisville is a welcoming community not to be missed.
A fun summer outing on a Friday night is the Louisville Street Fair. The fair lasts from 5-10pm, rain or shine, with live music from 6:30-9pm. Vendors line the streets offering food, drinks, children activities, arts and crafts. (For a list of performers, visit Downtown Louisville).
For a sit-down meal where you can still take advantage of listening to the live street fair music, try 740 Front. This restaurant is one of the two oldest bars in Colorado with an ongoing tavern license. Its historic mahogany bar and classic chandelier that hangs in the main bar skylight, still stand in the restaurant. During the summer, the patio provides the perfect vantage point to observe the Friday night activity.
So, take a moment to relax and let loose. Dance, eat and walk around this quiet, yet growing city on a Friday night. You might just be transported to that cafe table in Paris.
