The team behind Long Tan has converted the former Thai-restaurant space into a cocktail bar, now decorated with mahogany paneling and Italian granite tables. Park Slopers can sip on one of nine creative cocktails, including the Swedish Monk (gin, pear cider, chartreuse) and the High and Dry (rye whiskey, anise bitters, vermouth, orange twist). Soak up all the booze with a few small plates, including selections of meat and cheese, potpies and rillettes.
