Germantown is hopping! I love all the restaurants, bars, shops & salons on Goss and Hickory Street. Very well lit and walkable neighborhood. People (and often their dogs) are out walking even very late at night. In 5 blocks or less from my house: Kroger, Kroger Liquor Store, Double Dragon, The Bean, (Itallian style coffee shop) Four Pegs, (lots of craft beers on tap, get the chicken & waffle) Eiderdown (lots of craft beers on tap and great entrees), The Post (awesome pizza place) Nach Bar, (wildly popular dog friendly neighborhood pub) Sarino (Nuvo Itallian) Monik Brewing, (craft brews and A+ pub grub) Mr. Lee's, (like a speakeasy) Couvillion, (cajon & Southern comfort food) and Checks, Louisville's iconic casual diner/pub. The area is full of dog and cat lovers. The people are very welcoming and friendly.

Like neighborhood overall, just not direct neighbors. Neighbors are very clique-y and can be kind of unfriendly. Restaurants are very good.
My neighborhood has approximately 6 locally owned restaurants, some of them providing upscale dining. My hood is also home to some of the best bars/pubs in the Louisville area, at which time I am not old enough to enter. We also have one convenience store that has been independently owned and operated by an elderly gentleman for more than 40 years. You can get anything you need from this store! We have 2 grocery stores, one of which is owned by a big company and the other which is locally owned and offers a variety of ethnic foods. My neighborhood is very diverse and these types of businesses make it a very interesting place to call home
