For me this is a place to go on occasions. Not just anytime. If I had the money for it, I would go more often. We had dinner and drinks and then checked out the museum.

We stopped in for drinks one night and sat at the bar. I'm not a bourbon drinker, but tried a bunch of cocktails while visiting Louisville. The bourbon I had here (with cinnamon and cherries) was the best I had during my visit. The bar...More

This restaurant embraces the art scene and has cool architecture. The food is a bit on the odd side so if you are a picky eater, you might want to check out the menu first.

Very disturbing to say the least. I️ guess the most disturbing is the number of people who like it! Food was overpriced, and just ok. Octopus was good, bass looked very good, pumpernickel pasta and pork was horribly salty. But...Naked children with genitalia exposed, cross...More

Neat venue with interesting artwork, but food did not amaze. No one at my table raved about their food. We started with horseradish ricotta, and I had a veggie dish with spaghetti squash which seemed to only vaguely resemble what was described on the menu....More

Varied menu; lots of interesting choices with entrees primarily in the $30-40 range and salads and appetizers $10-20. I ordered the Faroe Island salmon which was served in a pool of shrimp consomme and accompanied by zucchini pasta. The salmon was thick, moist, and flavorful,...More

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.
