This historic building was originally constructed in 1887 as The German Insurance Bank, and later in its life housed Metro United Way and Liberty National Bank. Now listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Passalino’s is truly reflective of Louisville’s history in its architectural prime. This historic building was acquired by Louisville businessman Bryan Gillespie in 2015, who renamed the venue in honor of his mother. Gillespie also owns the famous Louisville art deco venue, The Gillespie. This neighboring venue is similar in style to Passalino’s, but can host up to 1,500 people.


Passalino’s is located in the vibrant downtown district of Louisville, less than 10 minutes from Louisville International Airport. It is also located only five miles from Louisville’s famous Churchill Downs Horse-racing track.

    Wedding Venue

    We loved Passalino’s from the first moment we walked through the doors. The staff was more than accommodating and responsive. The total price was so good for everything that you got with the wedding package. Would highly recommend it to anyone having a medium sized event. We had about 120 people and had plenty of room for dinner and dancing. The venue is just so pretty it made for perfect pictures without too much extra decorating. The window in the bridal suite is just breathtaking.
