The Scottish Pub, located on St.Marks Road, is a casual hangout place. It was the first place in Bangalore to serve draught beer, and it still continues the legacy. Established in 1988, the place has always been an old-school favourite meet-up place. If you’ve studied at St. Joseph’s, Baldwin’s, Bishop Cotton’s, Bangalore International School, Sri Aurobindo Memorial School, or any of the old schools of Bangalore or Bengaluru, you’ve definitely visited with your friends, boyfriends, or girl friends.
Often, it was considered the best hangout joint, a place where you would find people bunking up and chilling, a place where you could relax after school, and there are so many memories attached to the brand. The place had a different vibe then, and now it has completely changed. As you enter, you feel like you are entering Scotland, UK. The interiors are painted to perfection, and every inch speaks loudly of the fresh new vibe. The prices of the place are the same; it costs 800 for two without alcohol. The items on the menu are pretty decent and reasonably priced. It will definitely not burn a hole in your pocket, so you can chill and relax for longer.
The Scottish Pub has been an institution for Bangalore for a while. As the nostalgia hits in, its time to go back and revisit the memory lane.
A client says “My husband and I would visit Scottish as a couple at least thrice a week when we were studying at St. Joseph’s Arts and Science in 1992. It was one of our favourite places to hang out at. Today, we visited there after 30 years with our teenage sons, It felt absolutely fabulous. Nothing’s changed and that’s the beauty of it. Fantastic beer and some yummy finger foods. The good old cheese, cherry, pineapple was great. Also tried the chicken pakoda, chilli chicken, egg pakoda and finger chips which were very good. Some of the old staff were around and we reminisced about ‘the good old days.’ All in all a memorable experience and we’ll definitely be going back for more. “
