Best of Covington


Cork ’N Bottle
You can see the “LIQUOR” sign from I-75, and whether you’re looking for craft beers, California chardonnay, or Crème Yvette (a liqueur made from four types of berries and dried violet petals) they’ve got it. 501 Crescent Ave., (859) 261-8333

John R. Green Company
Teachers love the racks of activity books and bulletin board decor, but we love all the craft supplies: construction paper in a rainbow of colors, cases of crayons, tempera paint that smells like kindergarten. There’s way more, so pop in and see it for yourself.  411 W. Sixth St., (859) 431-5568

Fabulous Bridal
Say yes to your dress at this sleek, chic bridal salon. They’ve got gowns from designers including Romona Keveza, Anne Barge, and Martina Liana plus dresses for flower girls, maids, and moms, as well as all the accessories (jewelry, veils, headpieces). And the consultants are so helpful they’re your new BFFs. 601 Madison Ave., (859) 291-9222

Drees Pavilion
With its commanding view of Cincinnati’s skyline, flexible interior spaces, and sweeping terrace and gazebo, it’s no surprise that this almost seven-year-old facility is in high demand for weddings, corporate events, and fund-raisers. Even when there’s nothing going on, it’s still a great spot to watch the world go by. 790 Park Lane, (859) 431-2577

Otto’s
Paul and Emily Weckman’s cozy MainStrasse restaurant/bar serves up simple, comforting food, such as tomato pie and hot browns for lunch, shrimp and grits for dinner, and crab cake hash for brunch.  521 Main St., (859) 491-6678
