Proof Pending

Proof, a new upscale lounge specializing in a wide whiskey selection, craft cocktails and a personal approach, is coming to Midtown Crossing. “Our guests can expect consistent, high-quality service and cocktails while enjoying their visit in a laid back, engaging and quaint prohibition-themed bar,” says Joel Lavelle who is partnering with Kyron O’Brien on the concept. It will occupy the former Grane space at 120 S. 31st Ave. “We love the view of Turner Park, the layout of Midtown Crossing and the different types of people that frequent the area,” Lavelle says.

A Bloody Good Time
