What are you waiting for?!
1. Best nightclubs for Louisville singles
The best thing about looking for a new partner is that it can be so much fun.
And the best places to have fun in Louisville are the nightclubs.
When the sun goes down on this dusty ole’ place, the heat is cranked up. Hot singles appear as though from literally nowhere to hit the Louisville singles scene.
In other words, the nightclubs. So grab a pal, grab some drinks, and get ready to move it and groove it on the dance floor.
And when you do hit it off with someone, don’t wait too long to go in for the kill. Things move fast in clubs so don’t be a slow coach, okay?
Here are the top 2 nightclubs for singles in Louisville:
Zanzabar (2100 S Preston St, Louisville, KY 40217): This is THE place to go to if you want to have a good time on Saturday night. Revellers go here to dance their pants off, and there’s always a huge crowd. And you know what that means, right? More sexy singles to hit it off with!
Club Broadway (2523 W Broadway, Louisville, KY 40211): This is one for the older crowd (we’re talking hot Louisville singles over 40), but you can still hit the place if you’re on the prowl for a cougar. It’s got happy hour drinks, great music – and plenty of singles!
(and sorry, guys; no matter how hard you look, Jennifer Lawrence left these parts a long time ago!)
2. Best Bars in Louisville For Singles
Prefer to meet someone over a glass of beer, or a cocktail in a quiet but hip bar?
Bars are some of the best places to meet singles in Louisville. As long as you’re friendly, approachable and have something to say, there’s no reason why you can’t meet someone.
Just take a pal, prepare a great opening line to break the ice and chat away with new people who catch your eye.
And, hey, it might not happen for you straight away. But the more often you hit the bar scene, the greater the chances are that you’ll meet someone.
And as we all know, people in the South are more open to talking to strangers than those in the North!
Here are the 2 best Louisville singles bars:
Garage Bar (700 E Market St, Louisville, KY 40202): Located in one of the best Louisville neighbourhoods for singles (NuLu), Garage Bar is lively and – as its name suggests – it’s actually a part of the art gallery. This means it’s perfect for any culture vultures among you who want to shoot the breeze about Picasso.
Nachbar (969 Charles St, Louisville, KY 40204): Not into art? Nachbar is a fantastically hip alternative to Garage for singles who wanna mingle any night of the week. The best thing is that it’s dog-friendly. And as we all know, dogs are the best conversation starters EVER.
3. Concerts or Stand-up Comedy Shows Are Especially Some of the Best Places to Meet Singles in Louisville
Louisville bleeds music. If you do too, you need to start using concerts as places to meet Louisville singles.
Think about it for a moment: At concerts, you already know for sure that whoever you talk to shares your tastes in music.
So all you need to do is pop over to a gig, dance with someone and then ask if they’d like a drink at the bar post-show.
Not sure where to go? Howl at the Moon always has a live music party going on all the time. Just check out their duelling piano shows!
Don’t stick to just concerts, but add comedy shows to your social life, too. Comedy shows are among the best places to meet singles in Louisville because people are in such a good mood. Just round a group of friends up and get the heck down there!
Here is the best comedy club to check out in Louisville:
The Caravan Comedy Club (1250 Bardstown Rd, Louisville, KY 40204): Louisville is actually a bit short of comedy clubs, which is a real bummer. The Caravan is your best shot, but you’ll need to check the online listings before you head over there. As well as comedy and stand-up acts, they mix things up with with concerts.
4. Best Places to Meet Louisville Singles Online
Tried online dating before? How was it? If it didn’t work out too well for you, we’ve got some tips.
For one thing, it’s time to delete Tinder from your phone if you’re looking for something serious.
Don’t get us wrong, Tinder is full of some hotties and they can be fun to chat to. But 90% of the time, you’ll get to the crunch and they’ll disappear!
Tinder is a game that people use for validation. If you want to meet a genuine person you can connect with, try these 2 sites instead:
Match.com: Free to register and browse, Match provides scripted questions so that you can have proper conversations with people before meeting them. If you hate one word answers and “what you up to hun” messages, try Match.
EliteSingles.com: Are you looking for brains and beauty? Then try EliteSingles, the only dedicated dating site that’s aimed at those with a higher education. If you’ve always wanted to date a hot lawyer, now’s your best chance!
Whichever site you try, here are some tips for better results:
1) Add at least 3 photos, including one full body shot
2) Ask your friends to pick the photos
3) Write a bio (do NOT leave your bio blank!)
4) Always be positive in your messages
“But Datermeister! Where can I meet Catholic singles in Louisville?”
If your tastes are more niche, you can refine your searches on both Match and EliteSingles. Whether you’re looking for Jewish singles in Louisville or Christian singles in Louisville, these 2 sites are your best chance.
5. Gyms Are Great Places to Meet Louisville Singles
“Gyms? For real?”
Gyms are among the very best places to meet Louisville singles simply because you get to make new friends.
A gym is a bit like that youth club you went to as a teen. Because everyone is a member, you get to see the same people all the time.
As the weeks pass, you can eventually start to flirt with that babe who’s always on the treadmill.
In no time at all, you’ll be asking them out for a drink!
And in the meantime, you’ll be toning up your body and building your confidence. It’s a win/win situation.
6. Louisville Singles Events – Or Any Kind of Networking Events
One of the most popular Louisville singles activities right now is speed dating.
The concept is simple: you go to an arranged event, have a drink and then take your place at a table. After 3 minutes of chatting to someone, you move onto someone else.
At the end of the night, if there was chemistry between you and someone else, you’ll arrange a date the next day.
Speed dating is fun and efficient. And while it can be a bit awkward at first, you’ll soon grow into it!
For other great Louisville singles meetup’s, download the Meetup.com app and see what’s what.
And if you think speed dating is just too scary, at least try a normal kind of networking event. Even though no one goes to these things with the intention of meeting a new romantic partner, there’s every chance that you’ll make new friends.
And the more friends you have, the greater odds that someone will introduce you to your next partner.
7. Learn a new skill (while meeting people with the same interests) or do “hobby dates”
Want to learn how to paint but can’t find the motivation?
Whether you want to paint, cook or learn a new language, you should join a class!
Why? Well, d’uh! In case you haven’t realised, classes are full of like-minded people.
Who’s to say you won’t hit it off with someone new, or at least expand your social circle further?
And when you guys all go out together, well, anything can happen!
To meet someone new, you have to put yourself out there. It’s time to change up your old routine. Buy some new clothes for extra motivation and confidence, DM your friend and hit the town.
Louisville singles are ready and waiting for you. Are you going to get out there and meet them?!
