The corner of Fifth and Bergen, already home to a high concentration of bars, is about to get one more. According to DNAinfo, Duke of Montrose will be opening at some point during the winter, and will specialize in high-end single-malt whisky as well as a full food menu.
"We're really trying to bring something fairly sophisticated to the neighborhood with a Scottish flair to it," owner Steven Owen told the site. He also owns Caledonia, a well-liked Scottish pub on the Upper East Side. The space, which was last home to furniture store Trade Winds, will be built out to resemble a distillery.
