An Iconic Louisville, Kentucky Dining and Drinking Institution

A Love Letter to the Ohio River Valley

Since its opening in 2006, Proof on Main has become a favorite among locals for its farm to table freshness and robust collection of Kentucky’s best bourbons. Mirroring the vibrant and eclectic interior, Proof’s menus showcase a unique and well-traveled approach to southern and Appalachian inspired cuisine.

A commitment to regional producers and ingredients evokes a vivid sense of time and place, and a commitment to using the best ingredients results in dishes and drinks that are as eye opening as the art on the walls. At Proof on Main simple pleasures, serious bourbon, and creative food go hand in hand.
