Hotel Covington, Coppin's Restaurant to Reopen Friday with Changes
Hotel Covington and its Coppin's Restaurant & Bar are set to resume operations on Friday.
The announcement follows guidelines announced by Governor Andy Beshear related to restaurants and the coronavirus pandemic.
“We’ve made a few adjustments to our uniquely tailored experience in order to safely welcome guests to back to enjoy all Hotel Covington has to offer,” said Jack Olshan, general manager. “In the first few weeks, we will operate with a smaller staff and reduced hours as we follow guidelines issued by the state. The health and safety of our patrons, staff and community is our number one priority.”
In addition to state mandated requirements, Hotel Covington has installed hand sanitizing stations at each entrance and other high touch areas like the front desk, elevators, meeting spaces, and on each guest floor, in addition to removing all nonessential touch points in guest rooms, such as the famous Magic 8 Ball and Covington history books. Guests will also be able to check-in prior to arrival to expedite their time at the front desk.
Coppin’s Restaurant & Bar staff will be operating on a reduced schedule and menu upon reopening its indoor and outdoor restaurant spaces.
For now, Coppin's will offer brunch on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with no other meal service that day while also being closed Mondays through Wednesdays. On Thursdays, lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with dinner from 5 to 9 p.m. (and bar service until 10 p.m.), and on Friday, the hours will be same as Thursdays except bar service will go to 11 p.m. Saturdays will feature brunch service from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. with bar service till 11 p.m.
