Party Earth Weather Up Review

The Scene

Cocktail connoisseurs in the market for a refreshing take on after-dinner drinks need look no further than Weather Up, a romantic little gem quietly hiding behind an unmarked subway-tile façade.

Cocktail connoisseurs in the market for a refreshing take on after-dinner drinks need look no further than Weather Up, a romantic little gem quietly hiding behind an unmarked subway-tile façade.

No doubt thanks to the personal touch of British owner and namesake Kathryn Weatherup, the cozy space exudes a warm English pub vibe combined with a bit of New York in the form of exposed brick and more white subway tiles on walls and ceiling.

A rustic wood-paneled bar with attached stools provides space for laid-back older couples, young and bookish urbanites, and intellectual hipsters to sample the nine specialty cocktails on the menu – from the champagne-infused French Connection to the bourbon-based Battle of New Orleans – to a soundtrack of soft, old-timey jazz tunes.

Behind the bar, antique chemistry beakers and apothecary bottles vie for space with an intriguing array of spices, infusions, and odd-shaped ice in the form of giant diamonds or cylindrical rods doubling as stirrers, as well-trained bartenders work their magic.

Couples looking for a bit more privacy can retire to the paneled corner booths to chat, while romantics might prefer to snuggle at a candlelit wrought-iron table amid the foliage in the spacious back yard.

Warm and welcoming, Weather Up is a sure bet for patrons who love a mellow atmosphere and a mean martini.

Tip from Emma:

The cocktail ingredients can be pretty unusual, from Angostura Bitters to infused simple syrups. The best entertainment is watching the bartender make your drink, so settle in at the bar and feel free to ask about an ingredient that seems more than a little odd – you’ll be glad you did.

I'm not much for mixology cocktails--I'm a beer-and-brown-booze guy, and these days every Tom, Dick, and Reginald who bartends likes to throw on a vest and pretend they have a special relationship with orange bitters. However, Weather Up does a mean fancy cocktail, and their location and decor are just awesome. Located on fun and laid-back Vanderbilt and sporting a shadowy dark-wood interior with strange semi-futuristic lights, this tile-covered bar slings delicious concoctions not to be trifled with (their New Orleans Buck put hair on my gums). The staff are informative, almost to the point of overkill. If you have a chance, definitely grab one of their signature drinks here (more than one gets pricey).
