Brooklyn whiskey enthusiasts aren't short on options, with joints like Post Office and Char No. 4 pouring slugs of bourbon to the hard-swigging masses. But serious Scotch drinkers now get their own brown-spirits refuge, thanks to this Williamsburg watering hole. Like its Upper East Side sibling, Caledonia, this pub upholds devotion to Scotland's boozy export, with a menu featuring 200 bottles divided into five distilling regions: Highlands, Lowlands, Islay, Islands and Speyside. Take your draft by the stone fireplace—the slate-walled man-cave, featuring a wood-stave ceiling curved to look like a whiskey barrel—was inspired by Scottish castles. Tartan-waving beers—Belhaven, Innis & Gunn and Fraoch—round out the bar program.
