If you like live music while having a drink: go to that place! Every night there is live music. The atmosphere is warm and the service good. If you're hungry the food is nice as well (I had haggis ^^). If you are in Inverness you have to go to Hootananny one evening.

Went in with a friend on a Friday night. The place was packed, a couple of guys on guitars entertained, it was great. The had some great local beer on tap, this is my idea of the quintessential Scottish pub environment.

Great pub, great food! I ordered the Haggis (I was the only person to brave it...and I was the only non-Scot in the group!). It was WONDERFUL. I recommend it highly. Service very friendly and helpful. (His response when I ordered the Haggis? "Well ALL RIGHT!")

Just spent 2 1/2 hours listening to live music at Hootananny! Wish I had spent more time, but had to leave due to an early departure the next day!! Seating is limited, but people were leaving to the point, finding. Seat wasn't a challenge. If you're looking for a true Scottish experience with good drinks, this is the place to... More

A Bar which has the best music in the evenings. A Little " Lived in" but central with a good variety of beers.

We visited Inverness for the weekenda nd we are so glad we decided to go to Hootanannys during our stay! Its a lovely place, really good vibe, bar staff are very friendly and energetic! When we went they had a Scottish 3-man band playing and it was amazing, we couldnt have asked for a better evening!

This was a wonderful place to hear live celtic music. And obviously the locals like it too. We were there on a Saturday night and the place was packed. If you want to experience the flavor of how the locals like their music, there is the place to go.
