Lexington, Ky.’s Blue Grass Airport (LEX) this week announced that its food and beverage partner Delaware North has opened the Bourbon Library Bar & Restaurant, a new full-service dining concept at the airport.

Located in Concourse B, the Bourbon Library offers an array of bourbon favorites as well as a selection of southern comfort foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Passengers can choose amongst menu items such as fried green tomatoes, BBQ bourbon burgers, pulled pork sandwiches and healthy salads.

Next door is the newly constructed Snack Barrel, which offers grab-and-go items such as salads, sandwiches, snacks and beverages, and features a self-checkout system providing passengers with speed and convenience.

“Our partners at Delaware North have been working diligently during the pandemic to renovate our restaurant facilities and create dining experiences that showcase our region and elevate our service,” said Eric Frankl, LEX executive director. “We encourage travelers to allow time prior to their flight to enjoy these new offerings.”

In addition to the Bourbon Library, Delaware North also operates Dunkin’ and Sir Veza’s Kitchen & Kantina, which opened in 2020 and provides casual Mexican eating option for passengers.

“We are proud to bring a true taste of Lexington and Kentucky to Blue Grass Airport with the Bourbon Library Bar & Restaurant,” said Joe Gartland, vice president of operations for Delaware North. “With more than 90 locally distilled bourbons to choose from, there are endless cocktail options to pair with the southern-inspired food menu.”
