Worldwide Whisky Bars Directory Teaser

This is what the map looks like so far. Please expand the view or move it about to see other continents. There are no less than 87 locations there at this stage and that does not include bars in Edinburgh (for which we have a separate directory here). This is all thanks to you guys! Please note that this is still just a draft.

As always we await your recommendations on new bars and any suggestions for improvement you may possibly have. Keep flooding us!

  1. Looking very good, Lucas!

    What a pity there aren’t more entries for London. It’s criminal how little choice there is for the malt fan in the capital.

  2. London is a soft spot here, I admit. Do you know anything good there at all?

  3. I visited London recently. Went to Albannach. They have a nice collection of malts. Not cheap though. I’ve also heard of Salt whisky bar and the whisky bar at the Athenaeum hotel, both in London.

    I know there are a couple of bars in Rotterdam, the Netherlands where I live, but haven’t visited any yet. Shame on me. If I do I’ll let you know.

  4. The Athenaeum, 116 Piccadilly, London W1J 7BJ has a very classic and elegant small Whisky Bar with over 250 whiskies (including US and Irish). Quite a luxury hotel therefore a bit formal and not cheap, but memorable. They also serve a nice savoury snack menu with matching single malts. See

  5. I think you’re doing a good job, Lucas, so keep on going this way.There are far more whisky-bars in Holland, i.e. in the Hilton, The Westin and Bilderberg Parkhotel in Rotterdam and Okura and Carlton Banks Mansion Hotel in Amsterdam.

  6. Thank you, guys, good recommendations there! Will be going up on the map asap.

  7. Here are a few personal recommendations

    The Grouse Inn, Cabrach by Dufftown

  8. Great list! Another one you could add is Seven Grand in Los Angeles California.
    515 W 7th St
    Los Angeles, CA 90014

  9. Glenfiddich Warehouse Nr 68
    Västerlångg. 68
    11129 Stockholm, Sweden

    Set in the old town (Gamla Stan) in Stockholm, this great little bar and restaurant has a well thought-through selection of whiskies. Maybe not as extensive as Akkurat’s, which is a hop, skip and a jump away, but it does have its own cask (Glefiddich 92 oloroso). It also boasts the widest range of Swedish mirobrewery beers in, erm, anywhere.

  10. Hi Folks,
    another great bar in Craigellachie, Speyside:
    Highlander Inn (

    Good job for travellers, thanks!

  11. The best whisky bar in Belgium is in the centre of Ghent. It is the the Glengarry (32 St. Baafsplein – T 09 233 58 98 – shut Mo; Su 14.00-19.00; others 14.00-01.00), a high-vaulted cellar in which Belgium’s top whisky pundit, Bob Minnekeer, shows off an impressive range of 200 single malt and cask strength whiskies, some exceeding rare.
