Yonder
    621 Main St., Second Floor, Covington
    Inspired by owners Chris and Tess Burns' love of Kentucky State Parks, this bar concept by the folks behind Covington's Commonwealth Bistro features a chic treehouse-esque rooftop bar with a small rotating menu and craft cocktails. The bar menu features a variety of both alcoholic and spirit-free cocktails, like the High Lonesome, a cold brew coffee-based drink with sarsaparilla-hickory syrup, almond milk and mint. Co-owner Tess is a non-drinker and wanted a mocktail list “that was just as long as the cocktail list.” The breezy, plant-filled bar holds approximately 30 guests and features cozy, communal bench seating, hanging rattan chairs and five seats along the bar.
