The Henry Clay has a long-standing reputation as an elite venue of pure elegance and indul- gence. Our stylish ballrooms and surrounding historic location set the scene for a spectacular event. Whether it be for an intimate event for 50 or a wedding for 400, The Henry Clay is considered the premier establishment to make any event extra special. The Henry Clay, a historic building, was originally developed as an Elks Lodge in 1924. Throughout the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s, the building was a premier hotel in the center of downtown Louisville. After housing the YWCA , the building sat vacant for many years. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the grande dame was brought back to its’ previous grandeur when renovations began in 2005.
