20 Sep Ofer Eitan Suggest: Proof opens second restaurant with speakeasy bar
A Pasco restaurant has opened with a secret — for adults only.
Michael Miller, the owner of Proof Gastropub in Kennewick, wanted his new Pasco eatery to have plenty of room for families and something fun for the 21 and older crowd.
Secret doors and passageways connect to the restaurant’s lounge — the Juice Box Bar.
Miller created the space at the Proof Kitchen & Bar is in west Pasco at 6627 Burden Blvd.with a speakeasy fun feel.
The area features arcade games, two private karaoke rooms and a cocktail bar.
“The Pasco location will cater more toward families who live near there,” Miller told the Herald, who also is the founder of Stick+Stone Neapolitan Wood-Fired Pizza.
While the Kennewick location on Columbia Center Boulevard has always been family-friendly, Miller said that the Pasco location will be more so because of the separation from the bar area, as well as a larger dining space.
Specialty drinks on the other side of the wall include a Kennewick Man with bacon infused bourbon and simple syrup, and a Bandita with tequila, chili liquor and mango and lime. Don’t fear, cocktails will delivered to the table.
The karoake rooms rent for $50 to $90 an hour depending on time and day. The rooms can hold up to 20 people — although current COVID health restrictions limit their capacity.
The restaurant’s menu maintains its high-end modern flair as the original Proof in Kennewick with Proof Poutine, specialized burgers and handheld sandwiches, along with pork belly tacos and a ahi tuna poke bowl.

Pasco Proof Kitchen and Bar is open noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and closed Mondays.
