This low-key Upper East Side pub is unique for making old man Scotch a hit among the twenty-something generation. The Scottish owner makes his extensive spirit menu manageable by separating the bottles by their geographic origin (most are from the Highlands, Islay, and Speyside) and adding tasting notes. For those looking for something with a lower alcohol content, a few Scottish beers finish out the menu. The dark and glossy bar is the centerpiece of the tiny space, and there’s a small food menu with shareable appetizers like Scotch eggs and pork sausage rolls.
