Weather Up Tribeca

The long, copper bar, gleaming white tiles and amber lighting at Weather Up in Tribeca practically scream for you to take a seat at this elegant Tribeca watering hole.  The second outpost of Kathryn Weatherup’s Prospect Heights original, it’s not hidden behind a coffe shop or underground, but if you aren’t paying attention you could easily walk right by.  With a scene that is heavy on the financial type after-work crowd, the cocktails are classics and twists – see the What section below – or you can Keep Calm and Carry On with your capable bartender’s choice.

Who: A date, cool work colleagues, group of friends

What: On menu, we go for the Double Barrel, made with rye, sweet & dry vermouth, and bitters.  Off menu, ask bar manager Danny Gil for the Trouble Maker – a variation of the Tom Collins with gin, sweet vermouth, lemon, strawberries and cucumber.  Perfect for summer.

When: They’re busiest for weekday happy hour, but it’s a nice quieter spot for drinks on weekends as well

Pro tip: Order a dozen oysters with, appropriately, champagne citrus mignonette or gin martini granita with cucumber and black salt.  Talk about redefining cocktails and oysters.

Good for: Cocktails & Oysters – Low key date – Casual drinks – Happy hour
