The MacMillan Whisky Room is a quaint whisky oasis tucked in the heart of the Mosaic District. Upon entering you’re greeted by lush herb gardens (used in cocktails and in cuisine) adorned with lanterns that line the outdoor seating area. Once inside, you’re welcomed by over 350 whiskies. MacMillan is not limited to whiskies and is proud of its extensive wine and beer program. Staff is knowledgeable about the collection of spirits including an in-house Bourbon Steward and bourbon professional certified by the Council of Whiskey Masters. Our menu is a fusion of traditional pub fare and fresh American favorites including items such as our Scotch eggs, Steak and Guinness pie and custom sliders. Tables are equipped with tablets and charging stations. The tablets offer guests an interactive experience with our extensive spirits list, giving our guests the ability to view all tasting notes on our vast and continually evolving spirit selection. We hope to see you soon!

The only thing going for this place is it’s decor. We ordered Penicillin drink- was too sour, French fries were not fried through, cauliflower wasn’t cooked. Service was non existent, servers were running around but we couldn’t get utensils or water for half an hour. Very disappointing

Loved the look of the bar and the ladder sliding across the tall shelves. Food was good and liked the drinks, Only complaint was high noise level.

Service was really bad at my second time there. Reservations during corona virus which is fine but they had open tables and the server couldn’t accommodate. Went online and saw they had open reservations in 10 minutes. The time for our reservation came and the server sat other people before us even though there were still empty tables. She had a bad attitude bad we kept on waiting till 10-15 minutes past our reservation while others got seated. We finally got seated and ordered drinks. People who got seated after us got their drinks before us. Owner was definitely in on this and was condoning the behavior of this waitress. Disappointed in the places because it does have a nice atmosphere and beautifully decorated, but there are better whiskey bars in the area that actually care and treat customers right.

Of course, the whiskeys, spirits and cocktails are the stars. Love trying a different cocktail each time I go. Well made, seldom disappointing. Glad to see they expanded the initially very limited food/snack menu. The last time I visited I had the burrata salad, nice and seasonal and good quality burrata. The salmon was perfectly cooked - a golden, crisp saute on the outside but moist and delicate inside. Exciting that they've been able to add several tables outside so customers can enjoy the ambiance of the Mosaic neighborhood in summer. Well done!

My only concern was our server took her mask off (pulled down under chin) when she ran my credit card at the table. It was my first time out in 3-4 months so it made me feel uncomfortable.

This is the best Whisky Bar in the the DC, Maryland, Virginia area. Superior selection of Scotch, wine, and cocktails, food is surprisingly good, service is great, and there is live music at least a couple times a month if you're looking for something a little more lively. The only drawback is the MacMillan is fairly small and seating is limited so make reservations I garauntee you'll become a regular customer like me. 10/10
