Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse




Louisville, KY



When approaching Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse, the aroma coming from the exterior barbeque smokers draws you in. Joseph & Joseph Architects brought the newest concept in Guy’s line of restaurants to life by transforming a high-profile corner of Fourth Street Live into a lively restaurant with 4,400 square feet of indoor dining and 2,200 square feet of outdoor patio dining. The richness of the interior materials are intertwined with the rustic nature of the distressed wood and the vintage accessories. The feeling conveyed is both warm and authentic. Glazed brick tiles, in rust and charcoal, surround the open kitchen and the large indoor/outdoor bar. Warm, distressed maple on the walls and gray, reclaimed barn wood on the ceilings, surround the rest of the dining room giving the patron a sense of comfort. The variation of the textures of the materials, from rough-sawn wood to glossy tile and rich quartz to raw blackened steel, give an authenticity to the Smokehouse.
