COVINGTON, Ky. (FOX19) - A new outdoor dining option in Covington opened this weekend.

The concept is called Covington Yard, providing residents a new space to be outside, with shipping containers.

“The concept came about as a festive atmosphere for everybody,” said Covington Yard general manager Michael Hoffert.

The space currently houses Yard Bird, DJANGO Wester Taco and Mr. Bulgogi, providing patrons with a variety of options.

But, there’s more to this space than an outdoor food and drink establishment.

Hoffert says people are welcome to rent the space “You can do after-parties, bachelorette parties are welcome.”

He says they have already been contacted by people wanting to book a wedding.

“So, it’s amazing to see everybody out, especially in this time that we’re going through and to see the look on everyone’s face, it’s just amazing," Hoffert said.
