Coppins Restaurant in Covington is a fabulous restaurant that just so happens to have a boutique hotel attached to it.  The Hotel Covington opened it’s doors in 2016 to great acclaim, and there was a great amount of buzz over the hotel’s restaurant, Coppins,  named after the Coppins Department Store which is what the historic building originated as years and years ago.  Most recently the building was home to the City of Covington offices.  But now, after massive renovations we have The Hotel Covington and Coppins Restaurant.

Coppins Restaurant spreads from the lobby of Hotel Covington, where the bar is located, to a classy dining room to an outdoor courtyard tucked between two buildings.  The also offer a private dining room.

I have been to Coppins on a few different occasions, to dine and just to hang out for cocktails.  They have a great happy hour, and they even have a walk up window outside the restaurant for late night snacking.  Coppins serves breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the week with a special brunch menu on on the weekends.

The menu at Coppins is full of gourmet dishes made with fresh ingredients.  The menu changes periodically and every time I have gone I have loved every bite.  I have yet to try dessert at  Coppins…but one of these days I will remember to leave room for sweets after dinner.  Not only is the food scrumptious at Coppins, but the service has been impeccable each time I have been and the decor in both the restaurant and hotel lobby is gorgeous.  Next time you find yourself looking for a unique date night destination give Coppins a whirl.
