Googled music venues in Inverness for somewhere to take my partner for his birthday and this wee gem of a place came highly recommended. Nothing fancy with casual being the dress code, much to our pleasure, great atmosphere and even better live scottish music. Would definitely recommend here. We were in on a wed night and it was busy.

A great live music venue in Inverness with up to 3 sets a night. Great bar selection. It fills up so be prepared to stand. Wide range of musical genres on offer. Recommended.

Scottish music, Scottish food, Scottish servers. What more can you ask for? Went for dinner, had the neeps and tatties. Would definitely recommend the dish. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and were more than happy to chat about the place and surroundings.

We came for a live session of music at Hootananny and had dinner first. Food was good. I had the veal and mash. Typical Scottish pub fare. But the environment and music was great. Had four musicians in that night that basically had a big jam session at a table in the middle of the room. I'd recommend this for... More

Upon recommendation from a local, I came to this place with quite high expectations. To be fair, I enjoyed this place, with a few comments that really, REALLY let me down. POSITIVE POINTS: This can become a lively place, and pulls in a good crowd. The music is brilliant, and the general atmosphere in this place radiates a fantastic vibe.... More

Theres some nice beers here, nice ambient atmosphere downstairs with candles on tables then at 9pm a music session started, playing traditional scottish music. I went upstairs and there was another few musicians, very entertaining evening.
