“music”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We went their on a Tuesday night and they had a Scottish trad session going strong when we got there. Now as anyone will tell you us Irish love a good session of music and I have to say this was good. when the locals finished we had a bit of a sing song and nobody seem to mind. nice staff and the doorman gave us a shout when out taxi arrived. Looking at the posters they seem to have top bands playing their a few time a week, they have a cover charge on those nights but check it out if you in Inverness.

“Well worth the time!!!!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

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 go!! A LOT of fun!!

“A Brilliant Music Venue”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

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

“Great night out”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

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!

“Idyllic night out”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

After a wonderful meal, me and my girlfriend went in search of somewhere to spend the rest of the evening and we were suggested hootananny. And it was easily one of the best evenings of my life. Great ales available of tap, but most importantly a list of traditional Scottish folk music playing most nights and we ceilidh into the night. A night to remember and definitely a place we went back to the next night.
