Tipsy Town Tales

Tipsy Town Tales Frankfort

This ain’t your normal pub crawl!  This walking tour will go from KHS to three of Frankfort’s finest taverns as we drink our way through the bawdy & brazen moments of the past.  This exciting program will lure you in with stories of vice and disorderly conduct, uncovering the seedy side of our Capital City.  Great for a night out with friends!

Alcohol is optional (of course), and if you prefer to sip as you walk, all three taverns participate in Frankfort’s new MIX District. This program is limited to guests 21 and over.  Cost does not include drinks, which can be purchased at the local establishments on the tour.

Tour begins at 100 W Broadway Street, Kentucky Historical Society entrance.

Cost $10 for KHS members; $20 for non-members. Cost does not include beverages. Guests may purchase drinks at their discretion.
