Last night Kathryn Weatherup, owner of her eponymous cocktail bar out in Prospect Heights, appeared before Community Board 1's Tribeca Committee to propose a new location of Weather Up downtown. The new space would be a combo cocktail bar/raw bar offering 50 seats at a large main bar and leather banquettes. The interesting thing is, a different operator appeared for a liquor license at the same 159 Duane Street address last month, but Weatherup's lawyer insisted the lease will be theirs today. Weatherup's partner is the venture is Matthew Maddy of the No. 7 group.
In other CB1 news, the group told Locanda Verde's Josh Pickard, who wanted more sidewalk seating, that his staff is rude.
