Our friends at Only In Your State have featured another Fort Thomas business.

Grassroots & Vine (1011 S. Fort Thomas Avenue) is owned by residents Barb and Chuck Thomas.

They opened in a newly renovated space in the historic Midway District in July 2018.

“Grassroots (was) an idea of going back to basics and using local producers, farmers, artisans which intertwines with community,” Thomas told Fort Thomas Matters just before they opened. “I’ve grown to love Fort Thomas. I want to contribute more to the community while supporting it and enjoying it with families.”

The building, located at 1011 S. Fort Thomas Ave., has literally been designed as a destination for community engagement and interaction. Guests will enjoy a variety of different dining areas from a lounge-y feel at one of their banquette booths paired with cozy, brown leather chairs to traditional bistro tables and high-top bar areas. There is even a functional seating area where guests can enjoy the view, a glass of wine or a cup of locally roasted coffee, while accessing an outlet to recharge their phone or laptop.

The space is visually exciting as well with bright teal accent walls, rustic bar areas and high gloss, wooden table tops and several industrial accents, this space is sophisticated yet cozy and inviting. Local Artist Lucie Rice, who also created the “Grassroots & Vine” logo, has created the artwork featured inside as well. The exterior brick has been repainted a cheery Goldenrod shade of yellow and a brand new side patio is sure to offer a lovely outdoor dining experience. This impressive renovation has also given a nod to the historic details of the space by highlighting the original beams and rafters and using rustic chandeliers.
