How to Spend a Day in Covington
By Caitlin Sakdalan @befatbehappy
Start your day off in style by checking into the chic Hotel Covington. This hotel perfectly balances modern luxury and rustic, industrial touches.
Then indulge in a mouth-watering breakfast at Cedar where you can try dishes like their Coffee Crusted Filet Mignon with Chimichurri, Eggs, and Potatoes or the Chorizo & Lamb Sausage Biscuits and Gravy.
After breakfast, take a stroll to Revival Vintage Spirits to experience rare vintage bottles of bourbon, scotch, tequila, rum, and other unique spirits. Don't miss out on their suggested tastings, where you can try incredible liquors at a fraction of the price of buying a bottle. This is a one-of-a-kind experience to sip your way through history.
For lunch, head to the legendary Anchor Grill, one of Covington’s oldest establishments. This cash-only spot serves up crispy, juicy Southern Fried Chicken that's made to order.
Next up, explore Main Street and stop by the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar, home to an extensive bourbon collection and seasonal draft cocktails like the refreshing bourbon mojito. Take a break at Bouquet for some light bites, where local and sustainable farming is the cornerstone of their mission. With over 40 local farms as partners, they bring farm to table to life, not just as a marketing buzzword.
End your day at Mama's on Main, one of the new spots on the block. Focus on their quality handmade pasta. As someone from New York who has had a lot of pasta in life, I was genuinely impressed.
