Duke of Montrose, a high-end Scottish whisky bar that’s been in the works on the corner of Fifth and Bergen since September of last year in the space that was last occupied by furniture store Trade Winds, was supposed to open last winter. That obviously didn’t happen, but construction has really picked up recently.
The old sign has been removed (revealing a “Headquarters for Holiday Poultry” sign for the former Jaime’s Meat Market beneath it), and the storefront has been replaced with one that’s floor-to-ceiling glass.
Inside, there’s some interesting wood décor going on all along the upper left wall and along the stairwell that leads up the a tiny second floor area (DJ booth?). There’s obviously still a ways to go, but the final product should start shaping up very soon.
