One of the many things to love about Axis on Lexington is our close proximity to live entertainment venues. Whether you feel like heading to a local bar after work or seeing a movie, here are the best places to catch a live show near ourĀ Louisville apartments.

Headliners Music Hall

This locally-owned, 5400 square feet venue hosts alternative, hip-hop, metal, and alternative bands. Kings of Leon, OK Go, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Ice Cube are just some of the performers who have played at the Headliners Music Hall. You can also stream their shows live on your smartphone or computer if you can’t make it in person. 

Louisville Palace Theatre

A landmark in the city’s theatre district, Louisville Palace Theatre is notable for its elegance and history. Its Spanish baroque motif, velvety drapes, gilded borders, and vaulted ceiling are just part of the experience. Movie events, live shows, and modern concerts bring the majestic stage to life. 


Nirvana is popular for “The Vibe,” Sasha Renee’s weekly open mic night. You can order a plate of Bougie Fries or Crazy Catfish Bites as you enjoy performances from various local acts. And if you stay long enough, you can order off the late-night menu, which includes smoky ribs and more.


Opened in 1938, this classic tavern hosts live music a few times weekly. You can also catch pinball night, trivia, DJ sets, and more. The food is amazing, so don’t hesitate to try the crispy chicken tenders with barbecue, teriyaki, honey mustard, sweet chili, or buffalo sauce. 

Our luxury apartments offer easy access to live entertainment in Louisville and more. Make a night of it at one of these local fine dining establishments, and contact us today to learn more about the amenities available at Axis on Lexington.
