Located at 1525 Highland Ave. in the former sorting room of the Baxter United States Postal Service location, the full bar features house-made cocktails, wine, snacks, and 12 local beer taps — which will eventually pour its own beers.
Let’s take a closer look at the key players behind the concept, its menu, and space.
🤝 Meet the team
Epiphany is a venture between four partners: Ivor Chodkowski, co-founder of the former NuLu farm-to-table restaurant Harvest, Abby Chodkowski, Kelley Spillson, and Nicholas Clark — a homebrewer who had the “epiphany” for the concept in his garage.
Maggie Bray, the former brewery of Wild Hops Brewery in Logan Street Market, will head up Epiphany’s brewing operations in 2023.
🍸 Drinks and snacks
The cocktail menu features seven local variations of classic drinks that range $11-$14. The Farmer’s Tan, is a riff off of a dirty gin martini featuring Bandelero’s Kentucky “olive” brine and the Pawpaw’s Painkiller makes use of one of the region’s most misunderstood fruits — the pawpaw.
Epiphany is also serving snacks from local producers. Here are a few of our picks:
- Kenny’s “Beermento” cheese dip — A blend of cheeses washed in IPA and is served with baguette crostini
- Red Hog dry-cured salamis — fennel, chorizo, or pepperoni
- Froggy’s elote popcorn — lime, cilantro, smoked paprika, cheese
🛋️ The vibe
Co-founder Abby Chodkowski is behind the look and feel of the space, which modernizes the industrial space — think: oversized warehouse windows — with plush furniture, wooden tables, and leather seats.
Epiphany’s grand opening will last today through Sunday and feature $10 cocktails and $6 beers. After that, it will be open daily from 4 p.m. to midnight.
