    Try a Scotch you've never had. Cozy, but lots of choices.

    Great drinks and cozy atmosphere (with that, it can get crowded). Scotch ale is 👍🏻

    Michael has a special Tinder offer: show him your awkward Tinder convo, get 5% off. He guarantees the savings on an excellent drink but no guarantee on that date ;-)

  • Anthony E.

    Scotch egg, scotch and innis & gunn

    Anthony Evans · July 21
  • Anthony E.

    This is a great scotch place. If you're going to get a beer, get innis & gunn. Fantastic local with an inner circle of long term clientele who drink from bespoke chalices...

  • Sophie P.

    Bartenders advice is great. You tell them what you like and they'll pick the perfect whisky for you.

  • Abigail A.

    Really great bartenders and well-made drinks. Extensive menu.

  • Monica C.

    Unique bar in Manhattan with a bible of whiskey. Michael is a great bartender and fan of Game of Thrones!

    Monica Cullen · April 15

    Fantastic whisky selection and Sixpoint on tap - what's not to love?!

    Nice and friendly staff. Try the Vintage cocktail if you are not up to beer.

    Constantine Zuev · December 22, 2014
  • Bonnie C.

    Bartender was great

    Bonnie Carpenter · September 21, 2014
  • Christine T.

    Is that warm and cozy feeling the whisky, the ambience or the witty bartenders? Probably all of the above. Great beer, wine, cocktails and whisky tastings. And Mike's jokes are better after 10pm.

    Christine T · November 9, 2013
  • Mervin F.

    AUTHENTIC neighborhood bar. Excellent service, I feel like I'm part of the family even though I'm not from Scotland! They have THE BEST selection of scotch as well as other cocktails! Ask for Michael!

    Mervin Fevrier · November 3, 2013
  • Tess S.

    If you're going to a bar that's not this one, what is wrong with you?

    Tess Smith · November 1, 2013
  • Jack F.

    Want some good music, great company, awesome bartenders, scotch and the best beer ever crafted in Scotland - this is your spot!

    Jack Ferrer · October 26, 2013

    Come in for the restrooms stay for the other stuff.

    Lara Zubeidah Scharenguivel · October 6, 2013

    Great drinks, atmosphere and most importantly, charming and attentive bartenders! Michael is the man.

    Kristen Labriola · July 16, 2013
  • Peter B.

    Great bartender and small but classy lounge area

    Peter Bozian · July 15, 2013
  • Sigalle B.

    Dark, cozy and unpretentious. Impressive selection of beers and scotch. Snag the comfy couches in the back and relax to some great tunes.

    Sigalle Barness · July 14, 2013
  • Mita M.

    Ladies, if you're hot, smart and funny, I suggest you hit on Michael.

    Mita M. · July 10, 2013
  • Aimee F.

    This is the best bar in the city. And the bartender is pretty awesome too! Drink more scotch, it's good for you!

    Aimee Freedland · July 6, 2013
  • Matt K.

    Extraordinary Scottish pub! A refreshing change of pace from the typical Irish pub doldrums; truly a UES gem. Satiate your thirst with a dram of Scotch, a pint of Belhaven or an Islay Old Fashioned.

    Matt Kim · July 2, 2013
  • Aneesh S.

    If you're in a beer mood, i'd order an Innis and Gunn. If you're in a whisky mood, i'd order Laddie 10. If you're in a cocktail mood, i'd order Islay Old Fashioned. But that's just me. Cale. Drink up.

    Aneesh Sehmbi · June 9, 2013
  • Beka C.

    Try the Innis & Gunn Scotch Cask on draft- my new favorite, and tough to find anywhere else

    Beka C · June 9, 2013
  • Laura H.

    Check out trivia night on Mondays, it's an education and includes comp. whiskey tastings! And when you're not sampling whiskey, you should be drinking Belhaven.

    Laura Harrington · May 9, 2013
  • Mita M.

    Scrumptious sausage rolls, shelves of scotch, a jukebox, handsome bartenders, this girl couldn't be happier.

    Mita M. · April 26, 2013
  • Jon D.

    Awesome selection of scotch and really friendly and helpful bartenders

    Jon D · April 17, 2013
  • A-Ron C.

    Just take it from me when I say you already like the place. It won't save you much time, mind you.... But it will at least save some.

    A-Ron Clements · April 7, 2013
  • Chelsea G.

    Ask the Scottish bartender for a recommendation here, they aren't snobby. Big leather couches, an intimate atmosphere, and low music make this a good place for conversation.

    Chelsea Garber · March 10, 2013
  • Anish B.

    Fantastic selection of scotches and friendly bartenders at a laid-back bar.

    Anish B · February 3, 2013
  • Amelia A.

    Belhaven ale is a must try

    Amelia A · January 28, 2013
  • ✰ David M.

    One of the best selections around. If you are overwhelmed from all the options (and you might be), ask the bartenders for recommendations - they are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful,

    ✰ David Mathison ✰ · January 12, 2013
  • Olivia M.

    If the Penrose is too crowded for you this is where you should be. Still high brow, but less pretentious. Very relaxed environment.

    Olivia Momyer · October 4, 2012
  • Serge M.

    Try to Shepard Pie with a good smokey. Whiskey

    Serge Morrell · August 22, 2012
  • Jessica L.

    They literally do not know how to make a martini; it came back TWICE watery and awful... but the scotch is great

    Jessica Lin · August 18, 2012
  • NY Waterway

    This bar's Scottish heritage makes it stand out from the many nondescrcipt Irish-American bars that populate Manhattan. Whisky selection includes over fifty single malts and forty blended malts.

    NY Waterway · August 7, 2012
  • Jay A.

    Massive single malt selection, cudos to Michael for curating it. And there is a William Wallace broadsword above the bar. Awesome

    Jay Asper · July 25, 2012
  • Nick A.

    There's a f*cking broad sword above the bar.

    Nick Agderian · June 17, 2012
  • The Corcoran Group

    A very small and cozy bar with a great selection of scotches and awesome bartenders. Make sure you check out the back, and snag one of the very comfortable leather club chairs.

    The Corcoran Group · April 30, 2012
  • Spencer P.

    Great music!

    Spencer Posecai · January 8, 2012
  • Stephen C.

    Probably one of 2 bars worth going to on the UES. Read more

    Stumbled in randomly because I heard good music. Awesome tunes... Luke bryan, billy joel, bon jovi... Don't get no betta

    Gabrielle Houck · August 13, 2011
  • Gina W.

    The Scottish bartender is cute but smells like farts
