As you might expect from a restaurant named Hops n Scotch, this Coolidge Corner restaurant focuses on the grown-up pleasures of great food, craft beer and whiskey – lots and lots of whisky. Owned and operated by David Ng and Darren Tow, formerly of Coolidge Corner Wine & Spirits, Hops n Scotch combines an extensive menu of Southern-inspired fare, 40 beers on tap, 40 more in bottles, and 100 scotches, whiskeys and bourbons. The resulting amalgamation satisfies guests’ hunger for life’s simple (yet delicious) pleasures.
Spanning two stories in the bustling Brookline neighborhood, Hops n Scotch is appropriately outfitted in dark woods and shades of caramel, peat, and deep brown. Diners and drinkers can choose between booths for cozy evenings or seats at the bar for more convivial nights out. With nightly specials and fun festivities (trivia, anyone?), the spot has become a neighborhood mainstay that draws crowds from all over town.
