Constructed in 1929, the building was designed in the Art Deco style of architecture common to the era. Originally known as the Lincoln Bank and Trust Company, The Gillespie property later became part of National City Bank until 2005. Currently accepting reservations for events, The Gillespie has emerged as a premiere location for the most stylish weddings, social occasions, charitable galas, and corporate events.
Located at 421 West Market Street in the heart of Downtown Louisville, we are a short walk to the Kentucky International Convention Center, Vincenzo’s Italian Restaurant, and Z Fusion or just a brief taxi ride to The Galt House, The Louisville Marriott Downtown, 21C Hotel or The Hyatt Regency
and other downtown restaurants and attractions.
For your convenience in preparing an exceptional event, we have an on-site coordinator for your use. Our on-property event team has the experience and the knowledge needed to maximize The Gillespie’s space while helping you create a polished event. However, you are welcome to work with any outside event professional of your choosing.
