Visiting from Chicago area and went to Proof last night for dinner. Beautifully eclectic rooms and decor, but the food didn’t live up to the hype. For example, the southern cornbread was greasy. I didn’t even realize that could happen. The service was slow and...More

We had three meals here during our stay, and every one of them was phenomenal. I can’t rave enough about this restaurant- visit when you are in town or go to Louisville to eat here. We will, again. Awesome.

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.
