About Nicholson's Fine Food and Whisk(e)y

Nicholson’s has offered fine food and drink in a genuine Scottish tavern setting for 25 years. Taking inspiration from gastropubs throughout Scotland and the U.K., our goal is to provide our guests with authentic hospitality and a unique dining experience. We offer several private and semi-private dining spaces, perfect for rehearsal dinners, professional meetings, showers, birthdays, and more. The Garden Room is enclosed by glass doors for full privacy with an open feel and includes a private adjoining patio. The Hearth Room features authentic Scottish décor and an inviting fireplace for guests to enjoy. Our newly-renovated Horse & Barrel Room is available for special events, offering a whiskey-themed space with a view of Nicholson’s grand bar.

A spectacular event space - An Eventective User

We had our wedding reception here October 15, 2022, the seating was slightly messed up as they sent me a different variable of the set up and I based the seating chart off of that but then when we got there it was the original seating arrangements so there were many parties that were father away from us than we anticipated. However other than that everything was phenomenal. The food was some of the best wedding food I've ever had, the waitstaff was extremely attentive and made sure Marlea and I never had an empty hand, the bartenders were all on top of their game and made sure the guests never went thirsty. Thank you Cara for putting on a phenomenal event, our guests absolutely loved the venue and many of them took advantage of the balcony's and saw the sights and sounds of blink throughout the night. It was a memorable night that we will never forget.
