Service and food were excellent. Large selection of bourbon. Interesting and delicious food selection and extremely fresh. Recommend rabbit or the chicken with spaghetti squash. Also make a trip to the restroom what a cool experience.

Spent the weekend in Louisville and topped it off with breakfast at Proof on Main. The 21c breakfast with shaved ham and fantastic grits was superb. Reasonably priced for an upscale, downtown location. Very interesting decor.

Stumbled into proof after a day at the Derby and completely fell in love. The location is great in the heart of downtown and being connected to the art gallery is another added bonus. They have about any type of whiskey, bourbon, scotch that you...More

Best Bourbon bar I ever been in. Extremely knowledgeable bartenders. They were able to recommend various cocktails and allowed me to sample a couple of their bourbons I had never tried before.

Utterly charming decor both in the dining room and the bar space. However, service was erratic on what appeared to be a fairly sedate brunch service. Ordered braised greens and got grits instead (eventually corrected). Ordered the spinach, mushroom & egg white frittata which was...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.
