Louisville’s 21c ranks as a bona fide cultural institution in the making, not just a hotel with art. Designed by New York architect Deborah Berke, the 90-room property houses a multi-million dollar collection of paintings, sculptures, photos, and video installations by living artists (hence the hotel’s name, a reference to the 21st century). Most of the art comes from the personal collection of owner and philanthropist Steve Wilson and his wife, Laura Lee Brown. Occupying five 19th-century brick buildings, 21c showcases Berke’s spare-but-polished industrial style of exposed-brick walls and bead-board ceilings. Old poplar floorboards were turned into bar fronts, and recycled carpet backing became the bar’s floor.

Room to Book:

For a $40 upcharge, Luxury Rooms have a city view and face north and east.

Insider Tip:

Pick up a map at the Louisville Visitors Center and head out on the Urban Bourbon Trail to taste more than 50 bourbons.  The trail stops at 21c's Proof on Main.
