Borrowing lovingly from WikiPedia, here's the Tewligan's story...

Tewligans was a famous live music venue in Louisville and operated between 1981 and 1996 at 1047 Bardstown Road in the Highlands. Tewligans changed ownership a number of times, being known for a short time by the name "Snagilwet," which is "Tewligans" spelled backwards.

Tewligans provided a local stage for local, regional and national acts including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Yo La Tengo, Slint, Widespread Panic, Squirrel Bait, Love Jones, NRBQ, Jonathan Richman, R.E.M., Crunchy Cereal, Steve Forbert, Kentucky Headhunters, A Flock of Seagulls, Guadalcanal Diary, Miracle Legion, U2, Fugazi, Rollins Band, Blue Rodeo, Royal Crescent Mob, Afghan Whigs, Mojo Nixon, Bodeco and many others.

Tewligans often hosted (illegal) afterhours parties for regular patrons who would drink free until whatever keg was in service had run dry. On other nights, patrons could walk the short distance to the infamous Hepburn House, wherein an afterhours speakeasy, The Cafe Ralph, operated.

Probably two of Tewligans' best known figures were the co-owners and creators of Tewligans, Doyle and Mary Guhy. They bought the venue in 1981, when it was still known as "The Funktion Junktion", a bar known for live Southern-rock music. Mary was known for her tough attitude, and was considered the bouncer of the venue.

According to The Courier-Journal, '"Tewligans was a lifestyle." And those who ever went there -- and got out alive -- know that's true!
