Whiskey Bear Love

We're The Marlowes and the owners and operators of Whiskey Bear in Lexington, KY. We've put everything we have in building a gathering place for our community and we, like many other bars & restaurants across the nation, have been mandated to close our doors. We do not have the option of offering curbside pickup or delivery, and gift card purchases  just won't be enough to cover all our business and personal expenses.

We both work full-time in the business and Whiskey Bear is the sole source of revenue for our small family. Like many other Americans, we are worried about the stability of our financial future but stay hopeful that we will be able to reopen our doors when the threat of this pandemic is behind us. Every little bit helps and your support is greatly appreciated.

We look forward to celebrating our collective victory against COVID-19 and hugging each one of you very soon.

From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

Much love far and wide!

Daniel, Florence, and Adelyn (a.k.a. Sparkle Pants) Marlowe
