    Weather Up Brings Petraske’s Presbyterians to Prospect Heights 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.

    Prospect Heights Cocktail Den Promises Back Garden, Oysters Weather Up, the new cocktail bar in Prospect Heights, should open in a couple of weeks, says owner Kathryn Weatherup, an original investor in East Side Company Bar. Weather Up’s partner Matthew Maddy, who cut his teeth with a design firm that worked on the Box and Stanton Social, is turning a former storefront church (Google street view, above) into a “jewel box” of sorts by installing an old mahogany bar with a custom-made brass bar top, a tiled vaulted ceiling, stainless-steel and onyx light fixtures, and banquettes of buffalo-skin leather. Add to all that a back garden and you have a drinks temple fit for barkeeps trained by Sasha Petraske. There will be oysters and cheese plates, but obviously the thing that’ll drive people here are the classic cocktails, with the menu changing every couple of months. Soundtrack: jazz, blues, and local cocktailians smacking their lips. Weather Up, 589 Vanderbilt Ave., nr. Dean St., Prospect Heights, Brooklyn; no phone yet.
