The SCOTTISH HONKY-TONK, also referred to as the SHT or SKONK, is located on the stunning Isle of Bute, just outside Rothesay, featuring country, blues, and rock music, various moonshines from Kentucky and South Carolina and a sizeable assortment of whiskies and other delectable beers and booze!
A HONKY-TONK is a US southern bar that provides country and blues music for the entertainment of its patrons, and the style of music played in such establishments. Bars of this kind were, and are, common in the South and Southwest United States. Before World War II, the music industry began to refer to hillbilly music being played from Texas and Oklahoma to the West Coast as “honky-tonk” music. In the 1950s, honky-tonk entered its golden age.
