Anyone know of a bar/restaurant in Brooklyn that has Pimm's Cups?

    I usually don't like to reply by saying "no, but... " BUT if you order one at the Brooklyn Social, they will make it, but apoligetically inform you that they have no celery.

      BHill, it should be served with cucumber -- not celery...

          You are indeed correct. They have no cucumber. What was I thinking...

          Only one stop in from Brooklyn, East Side Company Bar on Essex has Pimm's Cups, as well as several other homemade fruit cups. I haven't had one as I'm a fan of their ginger-based cocktails, but everything is pretty good there. (I'm sure they're even better at Milk & Honey or Little Branch.)

            second this rec. of all of sasha petraske's bars, i think milk & honey's cocktails, including the pimm's cup, is the best of the bunch.

            I had one last spring at Sample on Smith Street. It might have been a special, so it might be worth calling before going out of your way, but it was really good.

              love pimm's cups... reminds of the summertime, however.

              thanks for the bk recommendations, i usu get a nice one at apt in the meatpacking.

                Had a decent one at pencil factory in Greenpoint, but don't think it had cucumber... try a british bar, no? Maybe Chip Shop on Atlantic does one (they have a liquor license), or maybe Floyd, next door...
