Shaking It Up On The Hill

Earlier this year when The Sweetest Things opened in Mt. Adams; the residents and visitors alike welcomed the independently owned café to Hatch Street. Offering breakfast all day, delicious homemade desserts, lunch wraps and soups to accompany their wide variety of
coffees and teas; it was warmly received. Patrons liked what they had to offer including free Wi-Fi and an array
of artwork throughout.

But some of the patrons wanted something more. Mt. Adams has always offered a vibrant nightlife with crowded dance floors and pulsating music; which tends to attract a younger crowd. Heather Turner decided to take her quaint café and expand it into the chic martini bar which so many of her patrons told her they would like to see on the hill. A place you could kick back and have a glass of wine or the beverage of your choice; a place where the music is well chosen and low enough so you can still carry on a conversation easily.

Heather listened and even went beyond everyone’s expectations, they have succeeded in creating a place that could be appreciated by the younger patrons but cherished by the more sophisticated clients. The bar area with its exposed brick and brown walls creates the perfect ambience to enjoy one of the signature martini cocktails made with fresh squeezed juices and they change weekly. The wine list consists of choice selections; beer and mixed drinks are also available.

Don’t get the wrong idea; the Abbey is laid-back not asleep. They offer live music on the weekends in the main area right off of the bar so you can still carry on a conversation. So, even if you like your martini stirred, things will still be shaking at the Abbey in Mt. Adams.

Great Night Every Night

An Irish pub should be what an Irish pub is; a friendly neighborhood gathering place. That’s what Josh and Paul at Molly Malone’s say and that is exactly what Molly Malone’s is; an authentic Irish pub. This friendly establishment is located at the foot of the Roebling Bridge in Roebling Point in Covington, Kentucky; right across the river from the stadiums. But don’t worry; even if you’re not from the neighborhood you will be welcomed as if you were.

They have a large selection of Irish whiskey and Scotch as well as 28 craft and import beers on tap including one the most famous Irish Stouts, Guinness which originated in Dublin, Ireland. The food is also great; they have authentic traditional fare like fish and chips which goes great with a pint of Guinness. After a night at Molly’s come back for brunch and have a traditional Irish breakfast.

Every night Molly Malone’s has something fun happening. For the past four years every Monday evening the Blue Grass Jam Session plays. If you play you can even sit in on the session. On Tuesday nights Roger Drawdy plays all the old Irish Ballads and Rebel songs. They also offer Texas Hold’em on Tuesdays. Wednesday nights is Pop Quiz night where teams compete for a $500 prize. It’s been called the hardest, makes-you-feel-stupid-but-you-keep-going-back-to-try-to-prove-you-aren’t trivia nights. Thursday Night Social has Tao Jonez spinning billboard and favorites. Friday and Saturday nights are alive with action on all three floors; from swing dancing to live acts. Sunday nights end your weekend with Karaoke with DJ Will Corson.

Not only can you have a great night at Molly Malone’s but you can have a great night and help others. Molly Malone’s has several charitable events that they host including The Mark & Friends Present featuring Jesse and the Ripoffs, The Last Troubadour, Wolf in the Fold and Mark Moore. Tickets are $10 and all profits benefit
