Highlands is an alternative to the speakeasy environment that can become tired for New York bar hoppers. This is a modern gastropub, where whiskey enthusiasts come to enjoy the best of Scotland’s drinking program in New York. Highlands serves twisted whiskey classics such as the ‘Nova Scotia’, concocted from angostura, Red Jacket, maple, lemon, and soda. An authentic beer selection is also on offer, with Scottish and European beers and ciders. Although Highlands is acclaimed for it’s drink menu, the food (which includes brunch) is also notable, comprised of hearty Scottish soul food.
