After a few weeks of preopening buzz, Weather Up has opened and owner Kathryn Weatherup (as you’ll recall, an original partner in East Side Company) tells us that by the end of the week there will be eleven classic cocktails on the menu (including an old-fashioned, a Brooklyn, a Florida daiquiri, a Presbyterian, a honeysuckle, a Sazerac, an aviator, and a bee’s knees) plus a weekly pick from bartenders Eliza Rose (formerly of Veritas) and James Arnold, who were trained by Milk and Honey’s Sasha Petraske. Hours of operation: Tuesday through Sunday, 7 p.m. till 3 a.m. Will this reliquary get mobbed as quickly as the Hotel Delmano did? For anyone planning to go there, we hope not.
