This cocktail bar was founded on the belief that sharing food and drink is a fundamental human experience and instrumental to the well-being of a community. With this in mind, we have created a cocktail list in the spirit of community and collaboration.

Our inspiration for these cocktails is drawn from the literature we love. We have created an homage to the characters, themes and prose within these masterworks. We desire to capture, through our craft, the manner in which these works have affected our lives. Like in all art, we have borrowed from others and included our interpretation, to create an original piece through the art of the cocktail.

We are pleased that you have chosen to join us when there are many incredible options in our greater community. We are grateful, and humbly at your service. Welcome to Proof.
