Fairweather is a patio bar dedicated to “drinks from sunny places”—daiquiris, piña coladas, Mai Tais, and zombies. It’s the brainchild of Anthony Schmidt, one of the more respected drinks men in the country. “Why hasn’t anyone embraced this vacation mentality in a proper cocktail bar?” he asks. A fair question.
