ABOUT USWhen OKBB opened its doors on Kentucky Derby Day 2012, there were several places to find bourbon in Northern Kentucky. But there were no bars devoted to Kentucky’s finest spirit–there were no “bourbon bars.” We loved bourbon and we decided to give it a shot! And more than a decade later, the bourbon industry in Northern Kentucky blossomed and OKBB became a destination point for bourbon lovers from around the world!

With an ever-expanding selection of Kentucky’s native spirit, OKBB now features more than 800 different bourbons and 200 different American whiskeys. Added to this unparalleled selection is our collection of rare "dusty bottles" that we release from the OKBB bourbon vault from time to time.
The experts behind the bar have a superior knowledge of bourbon and whiskey, and are always happy to talk shop. Although bourbon is undoubtedly the focus, we also offer classic and crafted original cocktails, a rotating selection of craft local beers, wine, and non-whiskey spirits.Far from "stuffy" and mildly irreverent, OKBB is not your grandad's bourbon bar! Relax on our intimate patio or hang out with the bartender inside and bask in the amber light reflecting from the massive wall of bourbon. Dont forget to take home a bottle or two of an OKBB select single barrel bourbon or other libations from the OKBB Bottle Shop and get some quality hats, tee shirts and hoodies all designed by TOMMYINK. Join us for a drink! We’re poppin’ bottles at the top of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail!
