Hours: Dinner & Late Night, 4pm - 2am
Upper King Street is becoming quite the cocktail mecca, and Proof more than holds its own against the stiff competition from its neighbors. The old fashioned is a proper old fashioned without any extraneous muddled fruit, and old reliables like Harvey Wallbangers, Tequila Sunsets, and gin and tonics are amply represented. This isn’t just a joint for drink snobs, though. The “real good beers” list offers plenty of cheap cans alongside crafty IPAs and sours. Plus, there’s a rotating selection of treats like mini donuts and boiled peanut hummus for snacking. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2013)
