Weather Up is everything a superlative cocktail bar should be - understated, chic and the bartenders are killer mixologists.
|Kitschy but not overly so. Perfect.|
|I could read this on a Sunday morning with coffee.|
The very first time I came here, they were out of vermouth or bitters, so the awesome bartender (Joe) made me a drink I'd never heard of before instead - an Enzoni (gin, Campari, lemon and grape juice). I have to say, it was superb. I have asked for this drink at other bars and they never know what it is.
They have a number of interesting cocktails that change often. However their crowning glory is without a doubt the negroni. All the right elements - the perfect temperature, the right ice, and a bitterness that washes over your mouth without making you wince.
|Don't mind my alien hands.|
|The ice cube takes up about 50% of the glass keeping the drink perfectly cold.|
It doesn't really get much better than Weather Up. Come early in the evening, saddle up to the bar and enjoy a truly exceptional cocktail experience.
