COVID-19 updates


*** UPDATED – Wednesday, September 16, 2020 ****

We are delighted to reopen our doors but as we all acclimate to the “new norm”,  things will continue to look a little different as we take the necessary steps to keep you and our staff safe and healthy while continuing to provide the great service and experience that you’re all familiar with. Please, keep reading to familiarize yourself with some of the new changes you can expect when you come to visit us as we comply with Gov. Beshear’s latest Requirements for Restaurants and Bars. In addition to what we have already implemented, the new requirements are as follow:

  • Discontinue food and drink service by 11:00 pm.
  • Close no later than 12:00 am.
  • Limit customers to 50% of the maximum permitted (indoor) occupancy.
  • Limit party size to ten (10) people or fewer.

Additionally, we will continue to strictly enforce facial coverings and social distancing. Please, do your part so that we can keep our staff and everyone safe. While we will continue to offer some food options, as of Tuesday 08/11/20, you are no longer obligated to purchase food with your on-site drink order and you are again welcome to sit inside our space or relax on our patio. For those of you who choose not to visit us in person but would like to enjoy one of our handcrafted cocktails in the comfort of your own home, we will continue to offer our Cocktails TO GO pouches – orders can be placed online at and either picked up at on our walk-up window OR via curbside pickup.

We are truly grateful and continue to be humbled by the love and support you all have shown us. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU! Please, continue to be patient with our staff as we continue to navigate the new guidelines mandated by our state, and most importantly, continue to be kind to yourself and each other. The only way WE get through this pandemic is by standing together and fighting TOGETHER.

In accordance with Kentucky and LFUCG Alcohol laws, YOU MUST PURCHASE FOOD WITH YOUR ONLINE DRINK ORDER. We will cancel and refund all online orders placed without food.

You must be 21+ to place an order. The name on the ID presented at pickup must match the name of the person placing the online order.

All Cocktails TO GO orders come in a sealed drink pouch – each pouch contains 2 cocktails. All you have to do is add ice, kick back, and enjoy.

We do not pre-batch our cocktails and each Cocktail TO GO is made to order.  All orders can be picked up during our business hours within 30 minutes of placing your online order.

We are located behind Honeywood in The Summit at Fritz Farm. Orders can be picked up at our walk-up window OR at one of our reserved curbside pickup parking spots (located in the parking lot across the street from Whole Foods’ patio off of Finn Way).

To prevent the potential spread of the virus, we are retiring our menu books until further notice. However, our full menu is available to view online and can easily be accessed by scanning the QR Code available at each table or by visiting

JUST DO IT. We miss hugs and high-fives too but for everyone’s safety, we require that you limit your movements away from your table ant that you follow social distancing guidelines and remain 6 feet apart from other guests at all times. 

We would love to see your smile, but for now, we’d rather keep you and our staff safe. Per Gov. Beshear’s Executive Order, effective July 10, 2020, facial coverings are required for service. We are not able to serve you unless you are wearing a mask. Please wear a mask when you are not seated at your table. If you forgot your mask, we’ve got your covered! Disposables masks are available to purchase for $1.

For your convenience, we have stocked up on hand sanitizer. Feel free to use it as needed but especially before and immediately after you enjoy your drink and/or food.

We will be operating on limited hours until further notice. Our new temporary business hours are as follow:

Monday – Friday  |  4 pm – 11 pm
Saturday + Sunday  |  2 pm – 11 pm
