Covington is getting a new nightlife and Southern-inspired dining spot with the addition of Sugar Whiskey Sis, a self-proclaimed "moonshine room" on Madison Avenue. 

The grand opening of the restaurant and bar will be held 5 p.m. Feb. 8 and is aimed at "longtime whiskey drinkers and exploratory food enthusiasts to expand what they once knew about this signature adult beverage." 

From the mind behind nearby Agave & Rye, famous for their alternative protein tacos (with options like kangaroo meat), the bar will offer more than 50 different types of moonshine, craft cocktails, local beers and plenty of chicken and pimento cheese dishes, plus hand-dipped shakes and an espresso bar. 

“We’re thrilled to be able to open Sugar Whiskey Sis and share our love of moonshine with Covington,” said founder Yavonne Sarber in a press release. “From the menu to the bar, everything was designed with the intent of bringing moonshine into 2019. Guests can experience the moonshine room with knowledge that they’re getting the very best this nostalgic drink has to offer.”

At the opening there will be complimentary moonshine shots from select vendors, including local Villa Hillbillies, and live music from Jimmy McGee. 

Sugar Whiskey Sis is located at 633 Madison Ave., Covington. More info:
