LOUISVILLE, Ky. — On October 25, 1923, the iconic Brown Hotel opened its doors for the first time in the heart of downtown Louisville. For its upcoming centennial, the award-winning hotel will host a Roaring Twenties-themed gala Wednesday, October 25, to recognize a century of exceptional hospitality and service.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to reach and celebrate such a momentous milestone in our hotel’s history,” General Manager Brad Walker said. “The loyalty of our numerous customers in the city and across the globe over the past century is invaluable to us, and we look forward to celebrating that together with a night to remember right here where it all started.”
To commemorate a century in business, The Brown Hotel is welcoming guests to adorn their best Roaring Twenties-inspired attire for a celebratory evening of dining, dancing, prizes and more in the hotel’s stunningly opulent crystal ballroom. The anniversary event will feature a night of entertainment including era-themed music performed by a four-piece band; mini hot brown bites and a special anniversary welcome cocktail; commemorative speeches with a Korbel sponsored toast; a four-course seated dinner featuring a customized, chef-curated menu, wine and dessert table; a hotel history photo presentation; an anniversary-themed photography backdrop; and more.
