Patios of The B-Line: Winter Edition

Recent state mandates have closed restaurant and bar in-person service, but we’re happy to report that many of the patios of The B-Line are still available.  And while the coronavirus prevents us from pulling a chair up to the bar right now, we won’t let it steal all of our joy!  Lucky for us, the patios of The B-Line offer many options to find your sipping point in Northern Kentucky.  Check out the suggestions below for the fair-weather days or look for new heated, covid-friendly options now available. Also, please keep in mind that all the restaurants on The B-Line offer carryout options, which includes bourbon cocktails when you order food! Cheers, y’all.

Rich’s Proper Food & Drink

If this sidewalk shot doesn’t make your mouth water, we’re not sure what will.  Enjoy the full Rich’s bar and restaurant menu from the Covington sidewalk, or opt for carryout when the weather’s rough.  Online gift card purchasing also available.

Coppin’s at Hotel Covington

The patio at Coppin’s is swoon-worthy.  Lights, people hanging out, dogs on the patio, the food and libations… really the whole nine yards.  We love it.  Carryout and curbside pickup are also available, but be sure to check their social media for hours.

Tousey House Tavern

Tousey House’s patio will take you back.  You’ll feel like you’re sitting on the back porch at grandma’s house, eating her hot brown.  So much so that you might lick your fingers in public and not even realize it. (No judgement here!). Tousey House is proudly offering their curbside menu, a gift card sale, and holiday catering.  More information available on their facebook page.

The Globe

Tucked down an alleyway, if you’re walking too fast, you might miss this gem.  The Globe has an awesome patio in the heart of Covington.

You can’t go wrong with any of the Mainstrasse Village patios and OKBB is no exception!  Decorated with umbrellas and twinkling lights, you’ll love hanging out in their back yard.  OKBB has creatively turned themselves into a bottle shop and gift shop during the in-person closure, so be sure to check out their swag!  More info on their facebook page.


Wiseguys Lounge

With Goodfella’s Pizzeria downstairs, Wiseguys has the luxury of having two floors of patio seating to use.  So spread out and enjoy a slice and a sip.  Seasonal cocktails are also available for carryout!  More info here.

Cheers, y’all!
