Louisville's most picturesque
dining experience is reborn.
Something big is coming to Louisville in Spring 2020
Offering sweeping views of the river and downtown Louisville paired with a supper club-style menu, Swizzle, a new restaurant by the Al J. Schneider Company and The Galt House Hotel, will welcome diners next spring.
Perched 25 stories above River Road, the space has long been a destination for Louisville residents’ most special moments. That legacy will continue with Swizzle, which will also offer happy hour specials and bar bites, encouraging diners to drop by for a quick drink, or linger for the evening. The new restaurant concept replaces RIVUE, which closed earlier this month, and will be open for dinner and drinks nightly.

The menu will feature the area’s best prime steaks, chops, sustainable seafood, and local produce, all served up from the open-concept exhibition kitchen situated in the middle of the restaurant, allowing diners to watch the action. The beverage program will take a more retro tone, with classic cocktails, including seasonal features, and a curated list of wines available by the glass or the bottle. The décor will take a similar retro-meets-modern tone, with a bold color palette, and clean, geometric lines paired with throwback fixtures and finishes.
While a chef for the new restaurant has not been named, the concept and menu are in development by two pedigreed culinary masters. Executive Chef Michael Putnam, who joined The Galt House Hotel culinary team in 2017, was previously the executive chef for Wolfgang Puck Catering at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, catering high-profile events such as the Academy Awards and the Emmys. Executive Sous Chef Kendall Linhart, who also arrived at the Galt House Hotel in 2017, trained at the Culinary Institute, and previously manned the kitchen at Daniel Boulard’s db Moderne Bistro in New York City.
