At SB3, “no processed ingredients” is the credo; forget soda guns, commercial liquors, sweet-and-sour mix, and maraschino cherries. Instead, a “Jack” and “Coke” is locally distilled rye whiskey and Boylan’s Natural Cane Cola, and the garnish display reads like an upscale fruit salad: grapefruit wedges, whole bing cherries, and mint sprigs, all fresh from the Greenmarket. Pedigreed mixologists—from chichi spots such as Pegu, Milk & Honey, and the Flatiron Lounge—handcraft specialty cocktails based on seasonal ingredients (ginger mojitos in the summertime, old-fashioneds) or your taste buds. But unlike the aforementioned lounges, SB3 skimps on pretense. In warm weather, there are all-you-can-eat crab/keg fests on Mondays; year-round, there are live performances including open mic and burlesque.
