Hidden upstairs inside acclaimed industry favorite, ABV, Over Proof opened in February with an innovative four-different-bars-in-one-year concept in its intimate space. The first is Flip-Flop, centered around rum and tropical islands. Reservations-only and with a tasting-menu format, this bar doesn’t offer a stuffy paired menu but rather a playful array of bites and cocktails in a themed setting.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Besides a fantastic bottled Cuba Libre, what’s not to love about Denizen three-year-old rum fat-washed with toasted coconut chips and mixed with Yellow Chartreuse, lime, simple syrup and a splash of bubbly?
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Stay tuned for the next theme this summer: a worldwide whiskey bar all about moody lighting, wood paneling and, of course, whiskey.
