The Rainey

Named after a local, eccentric billionaire from the 1920’s, The Rainey offers an upscale place to grab a glass of good wine or a perfectly crafted signature cocktail - all syrups and juices along with infused honeys and liquors made in house for our beautiful hand crafted, craft bar. An extensive small plate list opens up a “Southern genesis” style menu with items to suit every palate. The intimate setting and great selection of ambient jazz really takes area dining options to a new level. And DO NOT leave without trying the Key Lime Pie Martini. Trust us. Dinner Wed. – Sat. Sunday brunch.

Sweet Frog Yogurt

Located on the Tanglefoot Trailhead right next to AC’s Coffee in downtown New Albany, SweetFrog is the place to go for self-served yummy yogurt treats. Tart plus Blackberry is an office favorite. Also, a good tip is to put the toppings (they have loads to choose from) in first and put the yogurt on top so that it melts around the toppings. Great stuff!
