Early in 2023, Standard Proof opened our second-ever Tasting Room, located on historic Rainey St, to showcase our unique approach to whiskey defined by our craft infusion process. The Tasting Room is set in a modern atmosphere where you can enjoy elevated whiskey cocktails, gastro pub inspired food, conversations with friends, or anything in between.

Our award-winning whiskey and delicious food make for a great night out, no matter the occasion, and our talented bartenders will guide you through what makes our whiskey unique, from a single pour to a curated craft cocktail.

Join us for HAPPY HOUR Mon-Fri from 5-6pm where the whole menu is 1/2 OFF & $5 shots!

We are pet friendly and have a small patio!

    We booked an NYE dinner reservation at 6:45, when we arrived they told us the kitchen was closing and they’d only be able to do appetizers - even though it said online they closed at 9pm. Our initial server was quite rude and clearly didn’t want to be working on NYE, fortunately a bartender/manager stepped in to take over our order and he could’ve been nicer, he did a great job making sure we could order entrees and actually have dinner. The food was underwhelming and the atmosphere wasn’t great, wouldn’t go back there but props to the bartender who helped turn the night around.

    The whole thing was just really bad. The staff was friendly , but not timely. 20 minutes for a drink after ordering (whiskey on the rocks ), and there were probably 20 people in the building. I ordered the steak frites , I don’t even think it was steak, it looked like pork tenderloin. Cheapest cut of meat I’ve seen in my life. The steak was cold. Others in the party ordered the Caesar salad. The salads were dry, we asked for extra Caesar dressing. The 3 oz cups the dressing came in were 1/4 full. When we got the checks at the end, there was an automatic 20% gratuity added for “large parties”…. We had 5 people. (that’s fine , you should tip 20%) , but the server didn’t mention or say a word “hey gratuity is included “. The real icing on the cake though was they charged $2 per extra Caesar dressing, $2 for 4 pieces of crostini ( we ordered a charcuterie board for apps ) . All and all , after we left I got a $4 slice of pizza next door and it was 1000 times better

    Nice aesthetic bar. No complaints about service, bartenders were informative and friendly. Whiskey was disappointing tbh. Flight not worth the price. Cocktails seem to be the way to go here. We had the shishito peppers and fries. I wasn’t a fan of the peppers but my friend loved them. The fries were delicious

    Service wasn’t great. Steak frites was amazing. Chicken sandwich wasn’t great. Location was spotless and ambiance was great but there were no other customers.

    On my first visit, I was captivated by the restaurant's atmosphere, the attentive staff, and the exceptional quality of both the cuisine and beverages. I wholeheartedly suggest savoring the "Big Girls Don't Chai" cocktail. Despite my typical preference for neither whiskey nor bourbon, this drink is an absolute must-try. It brilliantly captures the essence of Chai, a flavor I genuinely relished. Kudos to bartender Alexis, who not only possesses impressive expertise but also delivered top-notch customer service.

    Can’t beat their Happy Hour prices. Hard to find anywhere else comparable on Rainey Street. Great food and wide range of infused whiskey flavors.

    Loved it, its a small place and the staff stayed busy but that's ok. The whiskey was very interesting, we had some clear favorites. The innovative cocktails made with the in-house whiskey were great. We enjoyed the food too. What was super terrific was the extra mile our waitress went to get my son's GF a vegetable patty that wasn't really on the menu. She keeps vegetarian and the menu could use a little more of that.

    I am not a whiskey drinker and the infusions made it tolerable for me. Cocktails were good, burger was great quality beef. I would go back.
