About Us

Our Story

The  Village Anchor offers a much-needed and unique setting in Louisville’s east end, both for personal and professional occasions. The restaurant’s look and feel are like none other in Louisville and, arguably, Kentucky. 

Two bars, the Anchor Bar and the Sea Hag, each appeal to a particular taste and rely on the other to offer one of the most spectacular experiences in the Metro area.

The Village Anchor Restaurant and Anchor Bar on the main floor bring together stone, red leathers, rich worn velvets, wrought iron, dark woods, Italian appointments, Carrera marble, and the original crimson red beer taps from Churchill Down’s Silks Bar. It offers an upscale-casual, fun environment with an inimitable European flavor and exotic French flair.

The lower-level Sea Hag Pub offers a completely different look and feel. The “Hag” brings together brick, worn woods, hand-wrought iron, stone, and copper to drive a more traditional pub setting. The 30-foot copper bar showcases 62 beers and 55 bourbons; while built-in ice troughs chill your favorite brew.
