I’ve always wanted to make it out to the original Weather Up on Vanderbilt but I never really happen to be in that neighborhood. And I never really happen to be in TriBeCa either but as I was there for a restaurant week dinner I knew I needed to head down early to try Weather Up Tribeca.
After quick hunt for the bar (*note it’s right next to Duane Park - didn’t see a sign for Weather Up and at first thought it was part of the restaurant) I found the place based on the address and was happy to see it wasn’t too crowded. There were people there but as it was a drizzly night I assume people were scared away from going out…
The bartender was very kind and not pushy - which I very much appreciate at a place I’m getting a $14 cocktail at.
I had the Winter Cocktail - Anjeo Rum, Homemade Ginger Syrup,Fresh Lime Juice, Allspice Dram & Soda. It was DELICIOUS. very ginger flavored but even my bf who isn’t a big ginger fan LOVED it. AND there was candied ginger on the rim - YUM.
My BF had the Applejack cocktail - Applejack, Apple Cider,Fresh Lemon Juice & Simple Syrup. Also very delicious, a bit on the sweet side but very refreshing.
Overall, it is certainly not somewhere I will be returning to regularly (at least until I have lotsa $$$$$$) but it’s certainly a fun treat when you want to feel fancy!
