There’s only one reason to go to this East Nashville bar, and that’s to have a drink. Leave the cigarettes, guitars and trivia knowledge at home because there are no cliche, modern bar traditions here. Instead, play a game of darts or pool and select a song from the jukebox. But most importantly, try one of the many whiskeys from the menu. Step onto the outside deck and sip on selections from the more than 75 varieties that come from all five regions of Scotland.

Longtime bartenders Jesse and Tracy Hamilton opened this East Nashville hot spot in 2010. It’s located near the Five Points area in Riverside Village. With original hardwood floors, a loft ceiling and an indoor fireplace, the 1940s-style building that houses the pub creates an intimate, inviting atmosphere. During hockey season, Nashville Predators fans enjoy watching games in the hockey room while sipping on craft beers from local and regional distributors. A large wraparound patio with tall wooden tables and cocktail tables surrounds the pub, offering a great opportunity to people watch or take in the fresh Nashville air. But the pub’s true claim to fame is its unique selection of Stuffed Pretzel Sandwiches.
