Isle of Skye is in soft-open mode and makes its official debut this weekend, the new venue is from the team behind Caledonia Scottish Pub on the Upper East Side, and here they replicate the brown-spirits model with a menu that's broken up into five distilling regions: Highlands, Lowlands, Islay, Islands and Speyside.
Brown spirits from other countries are served in case you want to hit some whisky from Japan or France. The decor was inspired by a Scottish castle, and we think neighborhood hipsters will enjoy the black-hues, stone arches and fireplace (there are also some couches where you can chill with your dram). The drinkery is located at 488 Driggs Ave., but this team's empire won't stop here. The crew promises to debut a third Scottish pub early this summer. That one will be dubbed Duke of Montrose and it will be located in Park Slope.
