Located just west of downtown in the Lower Garden District, Barrel Proof is a spacious whiskey bar that serves lots of cocktails and $1 High Lifes. Really though, you come here for the 288 varieties of whiskey that they carry. If you get hungry after a few drinks, they serve food until midnight, Wednesday through Saturday, and host local pop-ups the rest of the time, too.
