Owners of Gertie’s Whiskey Bar are opening a sports bar in Louisville with a fireball machine and tequila snow cones

The owners of Gertie’s Whiskey Bar have opened a sports bar next door, which will feature a Fireball machine and tequila cones.

Gertie’s Sports Bar Next Door replaces Nulu Sundae Club on NuLu Marketplace. It’s already open for your college basketball viewing needs and has 14 TVs.

Its offerings, however, aren’t your average burger-and-beer sports bar fare. There are “fine” spirits and cocktails on the menu as well as beers and, as mentioned, a machine filled with chilled fireballs and tequila snow cones, the house specialty.

For game-day bites, you’ll find “sophisticated hot dogs” – who knew they existed – and Frito pie, plus shacks to share.

Red Pebble Hospitality is behind the new establishment. The group owns Gertie’s Whiskey Bar in Louisville and Nashville. Gertie’s Louisville is a speakeasy style bar located behind Torino’s Sandwich Bar in NuLu market. It opened last spring.

“We are especially excited to invite guests to experience Gertie’s Sports Bar Next Door,” Howard Greenstone, Founder and CEO of Red Pebbles Hospitality, said in a statement. “It’s a refreshing addition to our more refined whiskey bar program alongside Gertie’s Whiskey Bar and Speakeasy, and just what Louisville needs to encapsulate its prolific love of the sport.”
