Sweet Polly: A Cozy Cocktail Bar Shines in Prospect Heights

Sweet Polly

[tw-divider]The Scoop[/tw-divider]

  • Murat Uyaroglu owner of Brooklyn-based Hungry Ghost,— a coffee bar and cafe that works exclusively with Stumptown Coffee Roasters’ Hair Bender espresso — expands his expertise to the cocktail world  with the creation of Sweet Polly
  • With a romantic European vibe, this craft cocktail bar is the ideal date spot on the way to the Barclays Center. Clever cocktails by head mixologist Bruno Dias take center stage with highlights like the Golden Eye, incorporating chocolate bitters and cold brew; the Bad Hombre with tequila, bison grass vodka, and yogurt; and the Chris P. Bacon which combines bacon fat washed Midori, lemon, and sour melon
  • The inviting space is unlike anything in the area and features local artists’ work. Guests can unwind and enjoy seasonal small plates, oysters, fresh cheeses, and sweets by chef Jared Stafford-Hill (Maison Premiere and Wallflower)

Sweet Polly delivers the same relaxing environment as the owner’s flagship Hungry Ghost down the street on Flatbush Avenue. Uyaroglu’s key to success is to create a social venue first, where people feel comfortable hanging out, and keep customers coming back with noteworthy coffee, cocktails, and locally-sourced food
