hello there!

Welcome to Northern Kentucky, or NKY as we like to call ourselves. In NKY the South quite literally begins at our front door — where small-town warmth & hospitality go hand-in-hand with big-city amenities and attractions.

Our unique style of South is what shines through… and you’ll find in NKY we do Southern with a bit of German fusion and a whole lot of sass!

So join us for a plate of fried green tomatoes, wash it down with a local brew & watch our hometown Cincinnati Reds play baseball on a bustling riverfront.  We’ll be glad to have you!
