About Us

"Sophie's is about providing fresh food, great wines, and beer to our guests by providing the highest quality service and food in a warm and welcoming environment."

How it All Started

"We moved to the Lexington area a few years ago and fell in love with the Uptown Lexington community and surrounding area. It has always been a dream to be an entrepreneur so we decided to invest in a business in Lexington. Friends suggested there was a need for a bar that offered food in the uptown area that focused on fine wine and craft beers. After countless hours of renovation and resourcing local materials, we were finally able to open the doors on July 15, 2016. Our goal is to become a cornerstone of the uptown business community while providing our customers with great service, amazing food, and a wide variety of wines and craft beers."

Its Future Plans

"The downstairs project is a continual work in progress but the style is complete. We aimed for a warm, friendly, and relaxed environment. We feel we accomplished that. The upstairs of our building has several ideas being tossed around, but nothing set in stone yet.."

Beers and Wine

Red, white, rosé, sparkling, or sweet. Light, hoppy, dark, crisp, or malty! Our extensive wine and beer collection include many different types of wine and beer in any variety that you can imagine. And if you cannot find exactly what you are looking for…ask! Our Sophie's staff will be more than happy to help you find the perfect beer or wine for you!!

Chef John Wilson

Chef John has worked in top triad restaurants and uses his culinary knowledge to create menus for our very popular beer and wine dinners that Lexington has come to know and love! Elegant 6-course dinners, paired with the dinner's featured brewery’s beer or vineyard’s wine give you a chance to sit back, enjoy, and learn!

Atmosphere for Friends

Since July of 2016, Sophie’s has welcomed locals, travelers, connoisseurs, and newcomers alike; a comfortable retreat for wine, beer, and food appreciation! We pride ourselves on being set apart from other bars around! When you walk in our front door, the warmth and casual atmosphere make you want to pull up a chair and just unwind for a little bit! Sophie’s is a great place for families, colleagues, or old friends to just come and relax at lunch or any night for live music, complimentary wine tastings, or drink specials!
