Over Proof  is the upstairs bar inside ABV.

Over the course of 2017 it housed 4 different bars, with different interiors and completely different, fixed price, 5 course tasting menus featuring cocktails and food common to various spirit producing regions.

Check the gallery for pictures - and the past menu page for menus.

THANK YOU for joining us on this crazy experiment.




Over Proof was a reservations-only bar, with different and exclusive food and cocktail menus served as a 5+ courses. 

The menu at Over Proof is preset and substitutions are not available.

The concept at Over Proof (including menus and decor) will change every 3 months, and each will focus on drinks made with one type of spirit, accompanied by (not necessarily paired with) food from the region(s) where the spirit is made.

Limited walk-ins are occasionally available.
