2913 N Clark St
The facade of Duke of Perth is unassuming, almost quaint in a congested and hastening neighborhood. The front windows enclose a modestly decorated farmhouse-esq front room complete with dated photographs, old clocks and a faux wood burning stove to keep warm by in the winter. The small bar runs along the right side and towers above the handful of gently abused tables and chairs. Deeper into the narrow space is another room sprinkled with tables, chairs, and more antique country charm. Through the garage size hole in the back room reveals a very large yet clandestine and secluded beer garden.
Behind the small bar up front is a cascading amber waterfall illuminating both rare and well known scotches. An adaptable souse would do well to ask for a whiskey recommendation and enjoy the expertise of the barman in this obviously scotch centered establishment. The tap rail sports several English and Scottish imports on draft, and chalkboards on the wall boast more variety in the bottled form from the British Isles. The ceilings are tall, the music is light and airy, and the barman and staff are prompt.
