As of Saturday the Stout Burgers & Beers (Louisville) page at Facebook still was publishing ghostly daily posts, but all indications are that the Highlands location at 1604 Bardstown Road has closed.
Food & Dining Magazine’s Ron Mikulak reported on Stout’s debut in 2015, observing that “the Louisville restaurant will be Stout Burgers’ fourth and its first outside of the Los Angeles area, though a Nashville outlet is in the works.”
Haley Cawthon of Louisville Business First helpfully brings the story full circle.
Stout Burgers & Beer, located at 1604 Bardstown Road, hasn’t formally announced a closure, but the company’s website has removed Louisville from its list of locations and leasing information for the property has been listed on KCREA’s website.
The property is owned by Chad and Lauren Coulter, who also own the adjacent LouVino. Chad Coulter confirmed Stout’s closure. Also, he made headlines last month for his plans to aggressively expand his other concept, Biscuit Belly.
Stout, a concept that came to Louisville from Southern California, opened in the summer of 2015. The restaurant was owned by Philip Camino and served burgers with a full bar of 30 craft beers.
“We feel that our burgers, along with the careful curation of our craft beer and bourbon lists, are world‐class,” Camino said in 2015. “Therefore it made sense for us to be in Louisville, which we consider a world‐class city.”
