There’s nothing gimmicky about Albar, the most subtly Scottish pub this side of the equator, a local favourite and the social hub of many. However, “being Scottish” at Albar is as natural as drinking whisky, with in-house whisky tastings and a double of the Albar ‘Malt of the Month’ always available for $8.50.

With Albar the hub of Emerson’s, beer is also the favourite on tap, and Emerson’s brewery will always launch a new or limited edition beer from Albar first. Also pencil “May-fest” in your diary, Albar’s own answer to Oktoberfest ‘fomo’, when the pub features thirty different hand pump beers over thirty days in May.

The large tapas menu at Albar is delicious and extremely affordable, with $6 hummus and your more traditional Scottish favourites such as haggis and oatcakes available.

Every Tuesday from 8.30pm a local Celtic band gathers around one of the cosy wooden tables and plays merry tunes for the evening, so come on down for a pint and a wee jig!
