Canopy by Hilton Downtown Louisville Announces Opening of Bourré Bonne Steakhouse

Canopy by Hilton Downtown Louisville, a $75 million, 168-room hotel, is set to open by the end of 2024 and will feature a new steakhouse concept from luxury restaurateur Kevin Grangier.

Grangier, the creator of Grassa Gramma, Le Moo and the upcoming Sake A Go Go, will open Bourré Bonne Steakhouse at the Canopy by Hilton Downtown Louisville, as well as a new rooftop restaurant.

The hotel at 143 W. Market St., just steps from Whiskey Row, KFC Yum! Center and the Kentucky International Convention Center, will be managed by Driftwood Hospitality Management — its first property in Kentucky.

New York-based Zyyo, which acquired the site in 2020, and Minnesota-based TruVine Companies are developing the property, the Courier Journal previously reported. Louisville-based Bellé Noble Entertainment Group, managed by Grangier, will operate the hotel’s food and beverage operations.

“We always strive to bring a local touch to every hotel we manage, and that’s especially true when it comes to dining options,” Bryan Postema, chief operating officer of Driftwood Hospitality Management, said in a release. “Whether it’s a poolside cocktail, a scenic rooftop view with carefully curated appetizers, or a luxurious dinner from one of the country’s top restaurateurs, our mission is to provide an unparalleled experience that goes beyond your average hotel stay.”

On-site amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center with a cold-pressed juice bar, more than 5,000 square feet of meeting space and a rooftop ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows offering expansive views of downtown Louisville and beyond, according to a news release.

According to Louisville Tourism, the opening of the Canopy by Hilton hotel will increase the number of hotel rooms in the downtown area to about 7,000.

The six-story hotel replaced a loan agency and two restaurants that were demolished three years after Zyyo founder and CEO Nick Campisanar and partners took control of the site.

“It really puts this corner back in the game,” said Doug Bennett, executive vice president of Louisville Tourism. “It’s another reason for someone to get out of their living room in the suburbs and come downtown and have a good experience. We definitely need more places like this.”

Zyyo previously developed the mixed-use Gateway to Nulu at 552 E. Market St. and also purchased the former Joe Ley Antiques building on East Market Street before selling the property to a Chicago-based company in 2023.

The company has a number of projects underway in Nulu, including the massive mixed-use NuLu Crossing development at 700 E. Main St. and the expansion and repurposing of a building at 629 E. Market St. to a more bourbon-oriented purpose.

The company also has early plans to build a 27-story tower at 140 W. Market St., called One Forty West, across the street from the future Canopy by Hilton. The new development would include a hotel, luxury apartments and amenities, including a rooftop bar.
