The Venue
The Seelbach Hotel is equal parts historical landmark and architectural masterpiece. It began as the dream of two Bavarian brothers - Otto and Louis Seelbach - in 1869 when Louis came to
Louisville to learn the hotel business. Sparing no expense, they imported marble from all over the world, bronze from France, hardwoods from the West Indies and Europe, linens from Ireland, and valuable Turkish and Persian Rugs. In 1907, an expansion started a few years prior was completed and included the famous Bavarian-style Rathskeller, decorated with rare Rookwood Pottery. Today the Rathskeller remains the only surviving ensemble of its kind. The Great Gatsby is born: while in army training at nearby Camp Taylor, famed author, F. Scott Fitzgerald, often visited the Seelbach on weekend passes to sip Kentucky bourbon and smoke expensive cigars. With a reputation for carousing, Fitzgerald was once banned from the Seelbach after the had one too many! His experiences in the Seelbach's elegant rooms inspired him to use the hotel as a model during the writing of The Great Gatsby. As the premier Louisville hotel, debutantes of upper-class society often "debuted” on the top floor ballroom, throwing grand galas, similar to the parties in Fitzgerald's classic 1920s novel. Fitzgerald chose the Grand Ballroom at the Seelbach as the backdrop for Tom and Daisy Buchanan's wedding reception in his American masterpiece.
