The Globe in Covington

The Globe in Covington

The Globe in Covington is a great little bar with a lot of pizzazz and fantastic cocktails. Before it was a trendy place to get a drink though The Globe was a little bit seedier.  In fact, I can remember walking past this building as a young girl when it was a gentleman’s club called...

Smoke Justis Bar & Restaurant in Covington
