    Spell my name correctly (Kerri)
    Aside from that, the service and meal were impeccable. We really feel like Jockey Hollow outshined our lovely wedding meal. Everyone continues to talk about how we picked such a beautiful place for our Rehearsal Dinner. Rocco and the team were professional and attentive, couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

    We had our daughter's pre-wedding rehearsal dinner at the Rathskeller at Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen on 8/31/18 - food was excellent, service was outstanding, Philip, Rocco & their team was great in every sense. We recommend them highly.

    My husband and I were married on May 27th at JHBK and our guests are still talking about how amazing everything was! We rented the entire restaurant and utilized each floor for a different part of the event. Upstairs for the ceremony, Oyster Bar and Vail Bar for cocktail hour/dinner, and the Rathskeller for dancing. It is hard to say what the best thing about venue is, but for my husband and I, the food and cocktails are near the top! The bartenders were crafting the most amazing drinks finished with smoked rosemary, fresh lavender, etc. And the food is just to die for (if you haven't gone for dinner yet, call and make your reservation now!!) Philip, our event coordinator, was there for us along the way and made sure everything went smoothly throughout the ceremony and reception. He even made sure my husband and I had a special champagne moment after the ceremony. If you are sick of looking at cookie-cutter venues with bad food, call JHBK immediately and see what you are missing! The best thing is, as a restaurant you can go there over and over and over again (which my husband and I certainly did... and continue to do!) (Oh, did I also mention it is handicap accessible, is stunning from the outside, and is in the heart of a cool city with hotels, bars, shops nearby? Okay I think I'm done now :)
