New York City Whiskey lovers are in for a treat this winter. Duke of Montrose, a new Scotch Whiskey bar, is scheduled to open on Fifth Avenue and Bergen Street, near Barclays Center.
The owners of the new bar are no strangers to Whiskey or to managing a high-quality establishment. The owners currently own another bar on the Upper East Side called Caledonia.
Below are a few selected quotes from this dnainfo.com article about the new location:
“Caledonia owner Steven Owen says the new bar, to be called Duke of Montrose — a title that’s linked to his ancestral Graham clan — will serve high-quality single malt whiskeys and a full menu of food. He hopes to open in December.”
“We’re really trying to bring something fairly sophisticated to the neighborhood with a Scottish flair to it,” Owen said.
Owen said Duke of Montrose will serve arena crowds, but the bar will be focused on neighborhood customers.
“Obviously we’ll cater [to the arena] but also to the local community,” Owen said. “Our establishment on the Upper East Side has been voted one of the best bars. We’re very intent on the community.”
