University of Kentucky's K-Lair Grill returns after 15-month absence

lblackford@herald-leader.comAugust 27, 2014 

The historic K-Lair Grill is back at the University of Kentucky's Haggin Hall. It held a ribbon-cutting and reopening ceremony Wednesday, but it won't open for business until next week.

A UK institution, K-Lair first opened in 1961. Last year it was closed when the old Haggin Hall was torn down to make way for a new Haggin residence hall. The new K-Lair is spread across 6,000 square fee, with 230 seats, TVs and exterior seating. Food will be served by Aramark, which now runs UK's dining services.

The new K-Lair includes reclaimed wood and the old K-Lair sign, which has been restored.
