Standard Proof Whiskey Co.


51 Rainey St, Austin

Things that feel in-place on Rainey Street: Lime scooters, bachelor/bachelorette parties, DJs. Things that feel out-of-place on Rainey Street: Standard Proof. This is the second outpost of Nashville-based distillery and tasting room, Standard Proof, and it’s located at the far end of Rainey Street at the bottom of an apartment complex. Unlike most of the spots on Rainey Street, Standard Proof is minimalist and spacious inside, with a massive wall displaying all the various whiskey infusions they offer. And while Rainey Street probably isn’t the first place we’re heading for a calm, early evening whiskey flight, the cocktails at Standard Proof are excellent. Combine that with a pretty solid Nashville hot chicken sandwich from the food menu, and you’ve got a great start to a night out.
