I guess if you're looking for night life, this is it. My friend and I however were not overly impressed with 4th street live. Most of the restaurants were chains, and way too many smokers. We had dinner at Birracibos, which I do reccomend, but beyond that there wasn't much.

Stopped in with several friends - be aware that at night, you will be charged a cover just to walk in the bars, and you may also be charged a cover (depending on the time of night) to go up the escalator to get to the bar area.

The acoustics are not good when there are bands outside and as far as I know (I was last there New Years Eve) there is no shopping or galleries or anything but... More

Walk around and eat or shop - this block is filled with restaurants and bars, a few shops. We did hear that after 9pm, they check ID and don't allow anyone under 21. At night, the lights make it quite beautiful and may just pull you in.

We happened to visit on a super cold evening, so while there wasn't a lot of action going on...there were a lot of options available for eating (and a whiskey distillery). So close to our hotel too. Definitely worth checking out

A self contained hot spot. A nice place to swing by during the Derby weekend. Usually see some owners hanging around.

There is plenty to do in one street! Dancing, eating, drinking, games, etc. We went 2 different nights and did different things each night.

A fun place for couples and adults but not really kid friendly, especially in the evening on weekends. We stayed down the street and went there for dinner. I would not do with kids again.
