Another Great Brooklyn Bar: Sweet Polly

Sweet Polly

Do you keep a list of bar and restaurants you keep meaning to try? Sweet Polly was at the top of my list ever since it opened about a year ago. I finally made it there the other night and plan to return soon.

This elegant bar has complex cocktails and small plates. The drinks are divided into house cocktails and 'forgotten classics.' There are also 2 cocktails on tap and a few local beers and ciders. And wine for those who avoid the hard stuff.

Tuxedo #2
We shared a De La Louisiane like a Sazerac: it combined rye, sweet vermouth, Benedictine, bitters and absinthe. The classy coupe glass made it even more elegant. The Tuxedo #2 was a martini riff, with gin, dry vermouth, bitters and absinthe. It seems like a jazz singer should be crooning in the corner.

Next time we will stay awhile and get a cheese plate or some crudo.  And definitely dive deeper into the cocktail list
