Emmanuelle, New Cocktail Bar for Northern Liberties

Sylvia Kristel starred in Emmanuelle, a 1974 erotic French film

Northern Liberties and the Piazza at Schmidt’s are getting a new bar. Tommy Up is opening Emmanuelle, a craft cocktail bar located on the Piazza but facing Hancock Street behind PYT. Author and bartender Katie Loeb has designed the drink menu and  Phoebe Esmon (Farmers’ Cabinet, Kennett, Chick’s) will be behind the bar.

The name Emmanuelle is inspired by French soft-porn films of the 70s. The bar will open to the public on Wednesday, November 22nd.

Emmanuelle’s drink menu will feature a wide selection of aperitifs, sparkling cocktails, French cocktail classics and new twists featuring French spirits. A curated selection of wines and beers will also be available.

    Didn’t Emmanuelle just die? A bad omen.

    Tommy keeping quiet about something usually isn’t a good sign.

    totally agree with Ryan, two of the most miserable female bartenders in philly, this place is not going to last. i mean why would you go here? how many jobs has each of these grumps had in the past 3 years? exactly. no one likes them, no one cares. foobooz meanwhile falling for the “hype”.

    Why would someone name a place after a soft porn movie? Or a tacky name like PYT? Oh yeah, he calls himself an even tackier name like Tommy Up. Thanks for the warning, I’ll stay clear of here.
