Patio season is in full swing here in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati region. Do you enjoy eating under the stars? Or kicking back on a bustling city street to people-watch as you sip bourbon? We’ve got patios that feel like hidden secrets known only to a select few (although everyone is welcome) and patios that will make you feel like you’re part of a friendly family. Take a look!
Prohibition Bourbon Bar
The world’s largest selection of bourbon is tucked away in the glorious bar at Newberry Bros. Coffee and Prohibition Bourbon Bar, behind one of Newport’s most charming patios. If you’re a newcomer or visiting from out of town, the Newberrys will make you feel so welcome it’s like meeting up with friends.
Tousey House Tavern
If you’re in the mood for something farther away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Cincinnati, head out to Burlington, Kentucky to enjoy one of Tousey House’s famous Hot Browns or sip from their impressive bourbon selection on their beautiful deck.
Bourbon Haus 1841
Do you love to people-watch? Then Bourbon Haus 1841 has the perfect patio for you! Take in the sights of charming Mainstrasse Village as you relax with one of their amazing cocktails or sip from their select choices of bourbon.
Or if you’d rather enjoy a quieter moment, The Globe offers a quiet nook in the middle of Covington’s downtown business district. Just step off the busy street and head down this quiet path. Knowledgeable and friendly bartenders await in this sleek, urban neighborhood hangout.
Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar
Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar, affectionately known as OKBB, is famous for its breathtaking wall of bourbon choices, but they also have a lesser-known gem of a patio out back. If you make it past their fabulous bar, you can enjoy your cocktail in this oasis.
Wiseguy Lounge – Mainstrasse Village
Speaking of hidden-away gems, many people who enjoy stopping at Goodfellas Pizza in Mainstrasse Village are unaware that above their heads is an old-time speakeasy: Wiseguy Lounge. If you find this impressive bar on The B-Line, you can also find your sipping point on their lovely patio.
Coppin’s Restaurant at the Hotel Covington
One of the newest stops on The B-Line, Coppin’s Restaurant at the Hotel Covington offers one of the most popular patios in town. You can sip under the sun or stars, or drop by on one of the evenings they offer live entertainment or a movie showing.
Cheers y’all! Hope to join you on one of these delightful patios soon!
Another reason to plan your trip to The B-Line! We already knew Northern Kentucky is home to the best bourbon bars in America, but it's nice to get official recognition. 😀
You will be in bourbon cocktail heaven if you "find your sipping point" with any of these delicious concoctions from the rock-star mixologists here on The B-Line.
We may be smack dab in the middle of the dog days of summer, but we predict that this could be the longest patio season in history... mostly due to Covid-19. And while the coronavirus might make us wear a mask or refrain from going indoors more than usual, we won't let it steal all of our joy!
