If you’re looking for a boozy, well-crafted cocktail – this is the place to be. It is fun to watch the mixologists climb the latter and create intricate cocktails. The mixologists are all great here! Jeremy is quite the character! No matter who helps you, it is always such great service. They have large round booths so you can bring a bigger group or take a date and enjoy a cozy evening. From the outside, it is so unassuming but once you’re inside the atmosphere is so cool, classy, and energetic.

I highly recommend checking out Proof if you haven’t already!” – Maddie P.
