Old Forester's Paristown Hall

Louisville, Kentucky

Kentucky Performing Arts


28,000 sq ft

This entertainment venue is the anchor for the Paristown development that is fueling the community with new energy.

This project is a 28,000 sf standing room performance venue accommodating up to 2,000 patrons. The design is fluid and flexible to accommodate a myriad of performance styles which range from the Louisville Orchestra to weddings. The facility is primary standing room, however, the upper balcony which wraps the perimeter of the performance hall provides VIP and lounge areas.

Another exciting component of the project includes the Music Garden directly adjacent to the venue. This park provides public amenities to ensure activity throughout the year but is also designed to host outdoor events. An open air pavilion serves as a band stand, while another pavilion contains concessions and a second level to project movies and performances being broadcast from within the neighboring music venue. The venue includes an adjacent green space area that is activated with public events and festivals.

Paristown Hall and the Music Garden combine to provide an exciting line up of indoor and outdoor events which activate and transform the surrounding neighborhood.
