NileGuide Expert tip:
Arrive early to avoid the smoke
This hidden whiskey bar offers a vast range of imported whiskeys from around the world, including some extremely rare (and expensive!) blends and single malts that you'd be hard-pressed to find even in the highlands. A bit of the spendy side, this little hole-in-the-wall attracts a class of new rich that fill up the place with thick smoke and loud laughter.
The bar is so small that the decor consists entirely of the giant wrap-around bar and the few seats that line the bar on all sides. You'll enjoy drinking as you stare at the impressive wall of whiskeys and booze. Cocktails are decently mixed but nothing impressive, the real appeal is the whiskey and not much else.
Keep in mind that the smoke can get so thick you'll start to choke on the exhales of strangers, but if this isn't bothersome than Lucky Man may be your place, and don't forget your Lucky Strikes.
