Nowhere Bar, set back from the streetscape at 1133 Bardstown Rd., will soon be joined by a new restaurant that Nowhere owner will naturally be called Somewhere. The new restaurant and sports bar will be located next door to the current Nowhere Bar in the space that for a long time was Amazing Grace Health Food store.

Nowhere Bar owner Dave Mattingly has long envisioned adding a restaurant, but waited until his first concept was on a solid foundation.  He has hired chef Nina Snyder, formerly the executive chef at the Louisville Boat Club, to create the menu.

Patrons might recognize some of the fixtures when the new restaurant opens by late summer or early fall. Mattingly acquired several items recently from the Jim Porter’s auction, including one of the bars and several tall tables and chairs.
