Finally, Cortelyou Road has a place to get a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers and a double shot of bourbon.

The dream team that opened the Farm on Adderley, Ditmas Park’s culinary cornerstone, has opened the first neighborhood bar on the rapidly changing commercial strip since Cornerstone, a dive bar, closed a couple of years ago.

“We want to give the neighborhood what it wants and needs,” said Gary Jonas, who owns Sycamore with his wife Allison and their partner Justin Israelson.

Jonas said the Farm on Adderley’s bar was not big enough to quench the demand for weeknight libations. “There’s a demand for a bar scene, even on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. There are people who want a seat at the bar [in the Farm], but have to move over to the tables.”

Enter Sycamore, specializing in bourbon and beer, with a backyard garden and a short menu of bar snacks and a jukebox of classics.

During the day, the front of the shop is a florist.

“It’s a minimalist flower shop,” Jonas said. He will sell blossoms at night to any romantic patron loosened up by a drink or two.

Sycamore (1118 Cortelyou Rd., between Stratford and Westminster roads in Ditmas Park). Call (347) 240-5850 for info.
