Scott’s Pub, founded in 1985, has been ran by the current owners for the past 20 years. The restaurant has an amazing location right in the Grund. The manager, Diogo, would describe Scott’s Pub as a place for young people, locals, expats and food lovers from all over the world to enjoy the sunshine, terrace and a typically very lively environment.\
Like all restaurants, Covid has had a dramatic effect on their usual business and will change how they do things in the future. Diogo, like all of us, isn’t quite sure what the new normal will be, but Scott’s will be ready to innovate and face it head on.
Currently, Scott’s Pub has a food truck on the weekends, as mentioned in our food truck article. Each weekend they have a guest chef and bartender showcasing lots of different types of food. Diogo mentioned that Scott’s Pub is trying to promote and support other businesses during the Covid crisis. This weekend, February 27th, the food truck will be hosting an Italian chef, Trattoria da Gino.
I was also lucky enough to speak with one of their current guest bartenders, Joao Russo. Joao makes drinks to go with the different meals that the chef has on the menu. He always makes drinks with different local and seasonal ingredients. Scott’s Pub works with Wengler for drink supplies and includes something that the kitchen offers.
