Northern Kentucky is the place to be, as Revival Vintage Bourbon Shop is opening its second location this fall.

“We are incredibly excited to expand into North by Hotel Covington, the 55+ guest room expansion scheduled to open in late 2022.” This area was one major piece behind the catalytic renaissance of Covington’s central business district and our business will continue the trend by supporting the ‘revival’ of 614 Madison.” stated local attorney and Co-Founder Shannon Smith.

Smith continued, “We are fortunate to have a great team, to have found great partners in Hotel Covington, and we are excited to create a truly unique, global, bourbon and spirits destination.”

“Our entire team is incredibly excited with the addition of Revival to our master development at North by Hotel Covington. Their business is a great fit not only for our project but for the community at large and continues the development momentum in Covington,” stated Guy van Rooyen, President and Partner of vR Group.

Revival is a retail and bottle shop that merges over a century of bourbon history into a one-of-a-kind shopping and tasting experience. Home to a carefully curated collection of rare and vintage bottles, Revival is staffed by approachable bourbon experts prepared to buy bottles from or sell to you!

Revival is shooting to open in “North” before the end of the year. Just shy of two years in business, Revival has purchased and sold thousands of vintage and rare bourbons and other spirits and accumulated accolades.

At the new location, Revival will have a full-service bar on the first floor, boasting one-of-a-kind vintage spirits and cocktails, and will continue with their tasting flights. On the second floor, Revival will have its library of over 4,000+ bottles for sale ranging from your favorite store picks to Pappy, to a pre-prohibition spirit you never knew you needed to try! Team Revival will also offer room rentals and will shortly restart their revamped Membership and Subscription Series.

No one could be more excited about sharing the new location than Revival’s Co-Founder and curator, Brad “Dusty” Bonds.

“I am incredibly excited for Revival’s future and the opportunity to share my passion of tasting history through bourbon with everyone! We are looking forward to attracting tourists to the wonderful community of Covington.”
