Weather Up

This anonymous facade hides the bar that Hannah doesn’t usually go to. At the beginning of the story, it evokes Cobble Hill, that “Brooklyn for the grown-ups”. She says that the Weather Up is a bit too classy for her and that she avoids places where bartenders are called “mixologists”. If your point of view is different, you should appreciate this bar offering a wide choice of cocktails and set in a converted church.
