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 want to move in. This dark 80-seat bar/restaurant is run by the same people as Ester and the food menu includes lots of snacky things, such as octopus with carrot and chilli oil, and anchovy toast with egg butter. 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 and plan your next drink.
