Cocktail Bar
We mix equal measures of approachability and creativity with a passion for exciting food and drink. Come join our community of creative explorers using the best ingredients and highlighting new talent. Satisfy your thirst for curiosity at Proof.

At the current moment, we have three residential kitchens! Neutral Ground, Vinny's Prince of Pizza, and Poppytons Patisserie.

Neutral Ground is a new concept that features New Orleans style food curated by Chef Kenyatta Ashford! Neutral Ground's food is available during our lunch service.

Vinny's Prince of Pizza was started by a local guy who shares a love of pizza and the musician Prince! He's making classic style pizzas for pick up, delivery, or dine in.

Taking inspiration from chefs Dominique Crenn, Jeong Kwan, Francis Mallmann and Dan Barber all of whom have a farm to produce food for their restaurants, Chattanooga, TN is where the dream of Poppytons Patisserie and Poppytons Farm has come to light.

We had a lovely time and great food at Proof Bar and Incubator. The peanut noodle dish was Amazing and the shortbread/caramel/chocolate bar was possibly the best sweet I've ever eaten. Cocktails were sophisticated and delicious.

Very cool place but needs some work, they only had one bartender which is understandable during the times we are going through but I see it doing well in the future.

We were glad we went and we will go again for sure - food and cocktails were great... sitting inside was awesome as outside was a challenge because of flys .

Dinner date with my wife. Service and food were great but still some kinks to work out. My wife’s dinner was served about 20 minutes after mine. They offered a free round of drinks for the delay, which was nice, but we needed to be able to drive home so we declined. We will give it another try since the food was great and we love to support locals.

Food was excellent from both Neutral Ground and Lil Oso. Would love a bigger draft selection, there was only one draft available when we visited Cocktails were good but a bit more expensive than we are used to paying. Service was top notch.
