Complete with very modern decor and choice of different Bourbon flights, this is one of my favorite hotel lounges. It was open late, bartenders were fantastic. Very extensive drink menu including several different Bourbons.

The restaurant, Proof and the hotel, 21c are all part of the museum complex. So your walk to the shared restroom is filled with art installations that change out regularly, there's also art in the bathrooms themselves.
