LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 20, 2017) - - Louisville’s favorite new bar Red Herring Cocktail Lounge & Kitchen, 1757 Frankfort Ave., will soon share it’s space with Red Herring Coffee Lounge & Roastery. This alter ego opens July 27 offering a custom coffee roast, tea, and fresh squeezed juices. Guests can also enjoy both “PG” and “XXX” coffee-tails including a cold fashioned with coffee instead of bourbon and bitters, cherry and orange and a cold brew Negroni with Campari, gin and cold-brewed coffee. Made-from-scratch pastries and breakfast sandwiches from chef Jacob Coronado will be available including sweet and savory kolache, no-bake cookies, giant “orio,” and cinnamon rolls. Items can be enjoyed daily from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. inside the historic Hilltop Theater or packed to go. At 4 p.m. the staff will switch from serving coffee to cocktails and the kitchen will provide its savory and sweet bar bites. For more information, visit RedHerringLou.com

“We always intended for our beautiful and storied space to be enjoyed nearly 24 hours a day,” said co-owner Brett Davis. “Now that our guests have learned to love our classic cocktails and unique dishes in the evening, we are ready to expand with coffee and pastries during the day. This gorgeous building lends itself perfectly for both a morning meeting and night out with friends and now so do our menus.”

Red Herring Cocktail Lounge & Kitchen opened in April serving 100 classic cocktails, plus a few custom creations. Chef Coronado cooks a menu of house-made bar food like crispy fried chicken skins, grouper cheeks and the burger with a ketchup bun and melted pimento cheese loaf. It offers a variety of popular drink and food specials including the Sunday social with all-you-can-eat barbecue for $5 and select cocktails for $5, $20 bottles of wine Monday, Tuesday taco night with $3 street-style tacos, Wednesday night half price cocktails from 9 p.m. until close, Thursday tiki night and daily blue plate and trash can specials.
