The bar and restaurant scene in Covington has really been booming these past few years. The Hannaford at Pike and Madison is one of the more recent newcomers to Covington. They opened in 2016 in the old Mutual building in Covington after it was empty for so many years. The Hannaford is in a great location, within walking distance to many restaurants, so you could either grab a drink here before dinner or stop by after dinner for a night cap. Or you could make an evening of it and meet up with friends or a date for cocktails.
The Hannaford in Covington
At the Hannaford they serve up spirits, wine and beer, customers can bring their own food if they are hungry (and luckily there are great restaurants nearby to carry out from like Coppins and Inspirado). The Hannaford is dimly lit and intimate, any date there will feel romantic or clandestine. It is not a huge bar but they have plenty of seating throughout. You can sit at the bar and chat up the locals or sit on the couch with a big group of friends. My favorite are the tables by the windows where I can watch the traffic and pedestrians go by. People watching is fascinating.
The Hannaford is one of our go-to places for a quick cocktail on date night.
The Hannaford is located at 619 Madison Avenue in Covington.
