Old Owl Tavern


Hours: Wednesday - Thursday 4:30-8:30 pm & Friday - Saturday 4:30-9:00 pm

The Old Owl Tavern is named for the Dedman family’s Kentucky Owl Bourbon Whiskey distilled along the Kentucky River prior to Prohibition. Dirt floors and “Kentucky marble” stone walls have been transformed into a casual bar and restaurant complete with porch dining cooled by ceiling fans and century-old shade trees. The porch is also enclosed and heated during the winter months for exterior dining. The Tavern boasts casual fare, great wine, and spirits available from the Kentucky-crafted 23-foot mahogany bar. One of the very BEST Bourbon collections in all of Kentucky is right here. In fact, The Old Owl Tavern was named one of the best bourbon bars by the Bourbon Review.
