The Grove

Stephanie Long


The heart of downtown Lexington has been home to Harvey’s Bar for 15 years. In the midst of the pandemic, Harvey’s closed temporarily, but reopened the doors with a new vision. The Grove now blends experiences from Harvey’s Bar and other local businesses such as Fable Charcuterie and Wine, Luna’s Vintage Food Truck, The Melodeon event space, and the outdoor beer garden. With a new name and alluring ambiance, The Grove is certain to become the new spot for drinks after work or for a fun date night.

The Grove has an ambiance that is hard to beat. The décor offers comfortable seating and a mural which makes for quite the view. Wylie Caudill created an eye-catching mural which is inspired by Irish folklore and Aesop’s Fables. It has a whimsical and outdoorsy feel that hints at what’s inside. If the atmosphere isn’t enough to lure you in, the selection of drinks may do the trick. There’s something for everyone with the wide range of signature cocktails, curated wines, and local brews on tap. To pair with one of the many drinks, they also offer savory foods in perfect portions. Fable offers takeout and delivery for their wine and charcuterie boards.

After a long day, you want a place to relax and hang out with friends and unwind. Next time you are planning happy hour or an event, try The Grove. You’ll keep coming back. Located on the corner of Main and Upper Street, it is in the heart of the city. We all know how important it is to support local businesses, and the Grove gives you the opportunity to support more than one.
