Quirky decor, cool atmosphere & the service and drinks were fine. Not the cheapest bar in town (we only had drinks) but a nice place to spend an hour.

We enjoyed a yummy brunch of hot chicken and smoked salmon. The service was attentive and accommodating. Because it’s part of 21c, it is decorated very eclectic and cool.

NOTE: Did not eat here. Went to Proof for drinks after dinner. I have NOT experienced a more extensive bourbon list anywhere. If you want to sample some bourbon that you can't buy without winning some lottery at your favorite liquor store, go to Proof

The restaurant, Proof and the hotel, 21c are all part of the museum complex. So your walk to the shared restroom is filled with art installations that change out regularly, there's also art in the bathrooms themselves.

Yes, we do have vegetarian and vegan options. There are also several items that can be modified so that they will fit those dietary restrictions.
