Times Square Scottish pub St. Andrews wears its heritage on its tartan seat covers, coasters and bartenders—who sport kilts and accents to match. It's a strictly open-collar hangout, with a long mahogany bar, TVs tuned to the game and more than a hundred single-malt scotches. Try a "taster" (a 1-ounce pour) or commit to a "dram" (a 2-ounce pour), and pair it with a creamy Scottish draught (we'll take a pint of heavy). For the adventurous, there's homemade haggis. For the rest of us, a Glenmorangie served neat—enjoyed with live Celtic music on a Saturday night—is Scottish enough, thanks.
