What is New in St. Matthews

The St. Matthews neighborhood has been evolving over the past few years, with the addition of new businesses that reflect the needs of the area’s residents. New housing options – such as remodeled Louisville studio apartments and modern townhomes – are also transforming this area.


Curious about what’s new in St. Matthews? Take a look:

A Few Firsts for Louisville

In January, international bubble tea chain Kung-Fu Tea opened its first location in Louisville at Mall St. Matthews. A month later, the mall became the first Dave & Busters location in Louisville. The arcade/restaurant/sports bar has 150 arcade games and about 230 total “play stations” (including billiards and bowling).

A Bakery Expansion

Scarlet’s Bakery, a non-profit restaurant that hires women for an 18-month job skills training program, opened its third location in St. Matthews in March. The bakery serves coffee and freshly made high-quality goods.

A Boutique Perfumery

In the fall of 2018, American Perfumer, which claims to be the only perfume shop in the United States dedicated solely to American perfumes, opened in St. Matthews. This spring, the business was invited to the 2019 Perfumed Plume Awards for two of its blog entries on fragrances.   

A Renovated Library

Renovation of the St. Matthews Library began in 2017, and the newly remodeled building reopened in May. The renovation added 7,800 square feet of space, a large meeting room with seating for 100, self-checkout stations, and other features.

A Remodeled Apartment Community

Halsey Flats has newly remodeled apartments – from studios to 4-bedroom townhomes – close to Mall St. Matthews. We’ve refreshed our fitness center, added more common areas for entertaining, and enhanced our poolside area. If you’re looking for an updated apartment in this lively Louisville area, give us a call: (502) 806-8030.
