Tucked away in a lane way, your out of town friends will give you points for this find. Great Scottish vibe that’s less of a theme and more like it’s been transplanted here from the Northern Hemisphere. The burgers are tasty and the fries are cooked perfectly.

We went to Highlander for my husband’s 40th birthday celebrations. It was a terrific night! Kate was great in helping us reserve tables in advance and the bar just had a great vibe. Staff were super helpful and friendly all night and our friends loved tasting the Scottish food!

Delicious burgers and such a sweet barman! Would definitely recommend the amazing scotch cocktail list even I’m normally not a fan of whiskey. There is something on every night it’s opened and would definitely go again for a night out next time!

I would definitely recommend Highlander to any of our friends and family looking to have a function or just a night out. We had such a great time, all of the staff were so friendly, helpful and welcoming to us. They treated all of our guests with the utmost care and I really couldn’t think of anything to improve on. It was the perfect night.

Every time we hold an event at Highlander, it’s an absolute pleasure. Staff and management know how to answer questions and make for a low-stress, yet delightful night. A unique mix of bar, nightclub and lounge, the venue’s interior is perfect for all occasions; the space has warmth and energy.
