This buzzing barroom marks the overdue arrival of a stylish Scottish tavern in NYC. The look is urban drawing room: Furnishings include stag heads, and the charming staff sports tartan ties. Scotch is the thing—sip from a collection of 100 whiskeys, or try one of the smart cocktails, which provide a perfect introduction to the spirit. We liked the citrusy Blood and Sand, made with 12-year-old Highland Park, Cherry Heering, orange juice and bitters. It’s worth bringing an appetite for the gastropub fare, too: Lamb sausage rolls with harissa aioli make for a topflight drinking snack.

You definitely have to time it right with Highlands as it can be a little unbearable if it is overcrowded as there aren’t many pockets to hang without being in the way of someone!But, if you do time it right it is a great little place!The bar has an unimaginable amount of quality Scotch and the bar staff somehow know about all of them!Scotch isnt the only thing on offer here, all of their cocktails are incredible and they have great beers too (Bells Two Hearted for example).


Food wise the menu is simple and rustic, but always amazing! My personal recommendations would be the scotch egg if you’re in the mood for something small.  For larger plates go with the beef wellington or the pork chop, both are fantastic.  Well worth stopping by if you’re in the west village

I found this establishment while on a hunt for Scotch egg and my, oh my, did I make the right choice.

I particularly enjoy the place except for the fact that I was seated near a bathroom (to be fair, this place gets very busy - very quick). My friend and I decided to be adventurous and order a few appetizers and 2 entrees.

The only thing that stood out to me was the risotto, whatever that was made with, A+ . And the scotch egg, I've never had scotch egg before so I don't know what a "good" one was suppose to taste like but this one - I didn't particularly enjoy the egg part but more of the outer meaty shell (THAT WAS OFF THE CHAINS).

I might be exaggerating but I just really like eggs.

Long story short: Classic dark-as-hell NYC eatery with heavenly scotch eggs.
