Polite Provisions, "manufacturers of local tonics, elixirs and cures," is a gorgeous and unique bar with cocktails suited for just about anyone. Retro both inside and out, Polite Provisions looks like a pharmacy-meet-ice- cream-parlor. With tiles, gas lamps, and a glass ceiling, you'll feel like you've entered another era. Order from a wide selection of handcrafted cocktails, cocktails on draft, or even communal-sized drinks to share with your friends.
