British bar owner Kathryn Weatherup likes to drink in secret. At least, that's the impression you get passing into her unmarked establishment by way of the nondescript door and heavy curtain that guard the way. Lots of places claim to be speakeasies, and rely on lame gimmicks to do so. Aside from its super low profile, Weather Up employs no gimmicks, unless you find immaculate cocktails served by professionals to be gimmicky. If you feel like spending ~$12 on a handsome and potent drink either before or after a Barclays event, you can't do better than this.
