  • One hell of a Scotch list!
  • An old friend took me here, and I had a blast watching him throw a little golden ring (attached to a string) onto a hook... For an hour. I think the high quality spirits had something to do with that.
  • Fantastic new addition to the Ballard Ave community. Have a single malt for us!
  • Fish & Chips is outstanding
  • Don't forget to use your KEXP donor card for a 10% discount.
  • The best hamburger
  • Fish & Chips, Bangers & Mash, Shepards Pie ALL amazing
  • Great scotch selection including many off the beaten path. Good neighborhood vibe as well.
  • You will live the atmosphere here. There's tons to look at and the drinks are good, too!
  • They have a huuuuge selection of whiskey.
  • The "Tatanka" is fantastic!
  • Free foosball upstairs. 200+ whisky options downstairs.
  • Cutie pie bartender. Damn.
  • If you're serious about scotch, come here! Get a glass of your favorite and take it neat. You can even drop some water in there w/the eye dropper at the bar. Bartenders know there stuff!
  • If you're really into scotch, try a random one; they have a really good selection. Else, have a tasting flight; they are very decently priced and will give you some perspective for your second round.
  • Impressive scotch selection. Weird crowd.
  • The Blood & Sand cocktail is excellent. Scotch, Cherry Brandy, Vermouth Rouge, Orange Juice $10.
  • They also have a website.
  • Opened in that funky corner building that used to be a guitar store. Apparently opened by the same people who opened the upscale French restaurant Bastille. They are on Twitter.
  • Booths upstairs are super comfy. Oh and check out the ceiling the owner's wife painted the mural
