Along with James Freeman and original Weather Up bar man Johnny De Piper, proprietors Kathryn Weatherup and Matthew Maddy have opened Featherweight, a dimly lit but warm cocktail bar adjoining Sweet Science on Graham Avenue in Williamsburg. Although the place is reportedly accessible via passage through Sweet Science's boiler room, the new bar's main entrance sits directly beneath a three-story-tall mural of a boxer clutching his punching bag. Open until 2 a.m, the pared-down cocktail list includes the "Witch's Brew," made with jujube-infused gin, Gran Classico, and lemon; the "High Roller" combines Champagne and Antica Carpano Formula.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
