Rich’s Proper Food & Drink – A Closer Look

The B-line boasts unique qualities of bourbon-focused establishments across Northern Kentucky but one thing that truly sets some of our bourbon bars apart is their culinary offerings. While most bourbon bars and distilleries solely offer our native spirit, certain B-Line establishments offer culinary menus created for a palette-engaging experience.

Rich’s Proper Food & Drink located in Covington, Kentucky takes satisfaction in being an offering to its neighborhood. The team here strives everyday to build and be a part of a growing community; a core value to owner, Bill Whitlow. Navigating the industry for over twenty years, he has created a concept that stands apart from the rest. After sipping on his first Sazerac and being awakened to the art of mixology and cocktails with integrity, he has built a business and team at Rich’s Proper that take pride in being the epitome of southern through and through.

Guests receive an authentic Kentucky experience at this Covington watering hole with a menu ranging from oyster shooters to shrimp and grits to Kentucky Bluegrass “Jambalaya”. While Whitlow prefers a cold beer with his carefully curated dishes, he recommends finishing up after dinner at Rich’s Proper with a barrel strength sipper. No worries, you will find no shortages of selection, especially with the extensive list of Private Selections Rich’s offers that you can find here (along with the rest of their whiskey list).

Bill Whitlow assures us that there is no one thing that keeps guests returning but the entire experience of it; the food, the bourbon, the bartenders, and so on. “We’re just a local joint and for us it’s all about experience,” says this owner. And a great one it is, Bill.
