With the glut of beer bars and gastropubs scattered about the Piazza and surrounding blocks continually growing, thankfully someone finally has thought to open something different in that neighborhood. That someone is P.Y.T. owner Tommy Up, and that something is a cocktail joint called Emmanuelle. Foobooz reports that it’s going in behind Up’s burger bar on the Hancock Street side of the complex, and that the moniker comes from the string of seventies skin flicks of the same name. Cocktail guru Katie Loeb drew up the drink list, and will hold down the bar along with former Farmers’ Cabinet doyenne Phoebe Esmon. Should all go according to plan, the drinks will start flowing there on November 22. [Foobooz]
