We came across a marvelous little place in one of Newport's residential neighborhoods. Address 530 Washington Ave, Across the street from Pompillios Italian Restaurant. The front room is the coffee bar and bistro. Enticing aromas of fresh ground and brewed coffee. They make their own cinnamon rolls too that fills the Café with a marvelous aroma. In the back is...

We visited Newberry Bros. Coffee and the Prohibition Bourbon Bar early on a Sunday evening. We showed up fairly early and I'm so glad we did! With seats at the bar, we not only got to enjoy some delicious bourbon flights, but got an amazingly fun and informative lesson from the owner Pete. It was more informative than most bourbon...

But what makes this place over the top unique us that amazingly extensive whiskey collection. Maybe they could beef up their breakfast selections and then just stay open 24 hours:)

We stopped by to see their bourbon selection. Great success, my boyfriend found a Rhetoric bourbon he always looks for, for a decent price. After the boys got their drinks, we went to the café area for our drinks. Waitress came, said she had to do something and never came back. She was just standing at the bar, looking at... More

We came here by pure chance. We were visiting from out of town and were going to eat somewhere on the Levee for breakfast. However nothing was open at 9 am. We were standing in the parking lot wondering aloud where to get breakfast when 'Michael Jackson' was walking by with his dog. He told us about this place and... More

Stopped in here after pizza and took a seat inside. There is a bar, outside, and inside seating. The service was awesome, very helpful and very polite.

Nicest owners you will ever meet. Best Service you will ever have. I cannot say enough about the breakfast. I will warn you, lines can be long for breakfast. The selection of drinks available is amazing. You just have to visit to find out for yourself

Wonderful staff and the owners offer over 750 bourbons. Probably the largest bourbon collection you'll ever encounter. They even have bourbon on tap! Quaint and comfortable. Very clean. Great customers too! Go and enjoy!

Owned and operated by Peter & Kim Newberry, Newberry Bros. Coffee & Prohibition Bourbon Bar is a one-of-a-kind, award-winning Cafe & Bistro located in the historic East Row District of Newport, KY – across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, and just three blocks from Newport on the Levee attractions. Newberry Bros. Coffee was named "Best Independent Coffee House" by Cincy Magazine, and The Prohibition Bourbon Bar was recognized by The Bourbon Review as one of the "Top Bourbon Bars in America."

Our Cafe features Organic, Fair-Trade coffee and espresso roasted on-site, and an amazing assortment of artisan pastries made from scratch. The evening menu features a great selection of decadent desserts and small plates.

Our Prohibition Bourbon Bar features the largest collection of bourbon and rye whiskeys found anywhere. Bar none. Over 1,500 and counting. The full bar also has a great selection of Scotch, Irish, Tennessee and Japanese whiskeys, along with over 50 wines by the glass and/or bottle. And more than 50 craft beers.

The Prohibition Bourbon Bar plays host to many bourbon tasting events throughout the year, with Special Guests from all of the major distilleries. Check out our website or Facebook Page for our current calendar of events.

We are dog-friendly, so pets are welcome on our outdoor patio - named one of the best in Greater Cincinnati. We also offer the area’s only Bicycle Service Station (BSS), thanks to a generous donation from our friends from the Wyoming Cycling Club and the Levin Family Foundation. The BSS features a bike mount on which cyclists can change tires, fix chains and perform tune-up with an attached tool kit, and a pressure gauge pump for tire inflation. And, there is a Red Bike Station located across the street, and free on-street and off-street parking.

We proudly support many local charities and frequently host fundraising events to benefit non-profit organizations such as Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP), The Alzheimer's Association of Greater Cincinnati, Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, and many others. Reservations accepted for large parties. Private tastings available by request. For those wanting to book a special off-site event, we are happy to do that too.

Thank you for your business. It is greatly appreciated. As are you. Love you. Mean it.
