Brooklyn’s upscale-cocktail invasion carries on in Prospect Heights, where owner Kathryn Weatherup has transformed a church into this white-tiled tipple destination. The copper-topped bar and sleek leather banquettes are prime spots from which to sip throwback libations. The tattooed barkeeps serve Fizzy Presbyterians (rye, ginger syrup, lime juice and soda) and bourbon-drenched old-fashioneds over ice slabs. You’re in good hands: They were trained by that patron saint of cocktails, Sasha Petraske.

Really cool spot right on Vanderbilt. It's got a speakeasy vibe, and you might pass it if you didn't know what you were looking for, but they're not trying to be pretentious about it.

Solid drinks and really cool interior. Definitely the place to wait out the ridiculous line at Chuko. 

Weather Up is a great place to bring your classy out of town friends for an incredibly complex, slightly expensive and entirely delicious cocktail! I always ask the bartender for his favorite whiskey drink on the menu and haven't been disappointed yet. Also a great place to wrap up a long work day with the one you love or come for a night cap after having dinner at one of the numerous neighboring restaurants on Flatbush. The atmosphere, though the place is almost always packed, is pleasant and homey, quite possibly because most of the other patrons are just as cool and casual as you are. This is likely not the joint you'll spend hours getting wasted (your bank account would drop drastically if you did), but rather a place you'll enjoy having actual conversations with interesting people over well-designed drinks.
