Oui: A new French-theme cocktail bar


PYT's Tommy Up is gearing up for the opening Wednesday, Nov. 21 of Emmanuelle, a lighthearted-'n'sexy French-themed cocktail parlor set up behind PYT in the Piazza at Schmidt's; you get in through a black door beside a wood-clad wall on the Piazza's outer rim, at Germantown Avenue and Hancock Street in Northern Liberties.

Rundown of the 35-seater: Craft cocktails designed by the peripatetic Katie Loeb, housemade mixers, new takes on standards, selection of champagne cocktails, deep in aperitifs, new creations with French spirits.

Bar staff includes Farmer's Cabinet alumna Phoebe Esmon and The Industry's Michael Burleigh.
