Poly is located in an old furniture showroom in the bottom of the Paramount House Hotel and despite there being no mattresses or living room sets leftover from its early days, we still kind of want to move in. This dark 80-seat bar/restaurant hybrid is run by the same people as Ester and the food menu includes lots of snacky things you can eat with your hands, such as grilled nettle flatbread, anchovy toast, and crudites with labneh. Sit up at the bar solo or with one other person and get a cocktail to start while you pore over the large wine list to plan your next drink.
