The Kentucky Inn, one of the oldest bars in the Washington Park West neighborhood, closed in July 2017 for a remodel and the installation of a new kitchen. As with every other construction project in the city, this one stretched on, but the bar, which originally opened in 1954, unveiled its new look and menu in December 2017. Inside, decades of cigarette-smoke stains were scrubbed away, new floors and wood paneling were installed, and a billiards room was added at the back.The original Kentucky Inn never had much of a kitchen, but the expansion comes with a menu of bar favorites and a few Southern specialties to match the Kentucky theme. Burgers and green chile are part of the Inn's repertoire, but there's also pimento cheese, smoked wings and a Kentucky hot brown sandwich (an open-faced turkey sandwich smothered in brown gravy or your choice of queso or green chile).
