The Newhall Mains boutique hotel on the Black Isle has a new residents-only bar called Andrew’s Bar that was opened in June by owners the Fraser family.
Manager Euan Ramsay told DRAM, “With space for 28 covers, we specialise in Japanese whisky, and it’s very much a Ginza-inspired bar with classic American cocktails too. We are very small but the idea is to do things properly. We’ve got an Italian bartender who used to work at the Fife Arms in Braemar.
“The interior design is a combination of wood panelling, and blue stained Japanese tiles and is fairly dark.”
Newhall Mains is a re-invention of the traditional ‘Mains’ building that was restored into a series of cottages and guest suites last year.
