Polly is a stylish cocktail bar with a definite touch of the theatrical. This established Brunswick favourite is a rather dramatic space, decorated in shades of crimson, plum and purple, with well-worn antique couches and elegant regency-style chairs. There are over 50 different cocktails to choose from including the charming Fizzy Miss Lizzy, a blend of sloe gin and champagne. Those with a sweet tooth should go for the dessert-worthy Bourbon Butter with bourbon, butterscotch schnapps, frangelico and a scoop of peanut butter. The bar also stocks a wide range of absinthes and it would be remiss not to try one while you’re there. A popular spot, it can get seriously packed on Saturday nights.
