Sweet Polly is everything I want my local cocktail bar to be. It’s cozy yet chic. You can order a cocktail, or wine, or several New York beers. There’s oysters, cheeses, and small plates to share. But it’s the bartenders that really set Sweet Polly apart from the many bars in the neighborhood.
It would be an injustice to simply say that the service here is friendly. Each time I’ve gone to Sweet Polly, a different bartender has taken an off-the-menu request and added a different, unique spin that has shattered any and all of my expectations. From the Bad Hombre (tequila, Bison Grass vodka, lime, Creme De Cassis, yogurt, jasmine tea, and agave) served in a ceramic shark tiki mug and topped with a cinnamon stick that the bartender lights on fire to the house negroni on tap, at Sweet Polly, you can’t go wrong. Don’t miss the weekend brunch from 11:00 – 16:00.
