The six-month old bar has made waves already in the San Diego drink scene. Here you'll find spirited cocktails, punches, champagne cocktails, housemade sodas, beer cocktails, and the list goes on and on.
Eater gives its opinion on the "gold-accented cocktail parlor": "... bands of hipsters in plaid mingle with a rowdy Hawaiian shirt-clad crowd, bonding over a shared love of fancy $8 elixirs with ingredients like housemade grapefruit soda, Blanco tequila, London dry gin, organic mint and celery bitters." We can't complain about that. Still, Eater also shares that not everyone is as enthused about Polite Provisions. Said one Yelper, "Polite Provisions is just a pretentious venue that just offers a nice ambiance, overpriced cocktails where you don't know the exact ingredients, and pricey punch bowls that are essentially a $35 bowl of jungle juice."
