The decidedly more mature sibling of renowned party palace Q Bar, Smalls does away with the dance floor in favour of vintage French design cues, swathes of velvet, and candlelit bar and booth seating. As the moniker suggests, the three-floor corner space is on the petite side – with just two diminutive rooms, a second storey balcony, and rooftop deck – but what it lacks in size Smalls makes up for in flavour. There’s an extensive cocktail list highlighting inventive craft blends like a creamy Chocotini and the Thai-inspired Dragon Piroska with dragon fruit, honey and a generous nip of vodka, or for the more decadent imbiber owner David Jacobsen shelves a heady array of Absinthes served in traditional fountains with the requisite spoon and crystal accoutrements. Add in a concise list of beers, wines, cheeses and snacks, and you’ve got a perfect little pre or post stop. Good things, Smalls packages.
