Lady Jane's definitively modern-chic aesthetic is complemented by an abundance of live plants, and there are several separate cozy seating areas so you don't have to hang with the crowd if you don't want to. Where Lady Jane really stands out from other neighborhood bars is its robust lists of beers, wines and spirits, as well as the creative cocktails–both house and classic–on offer. This is not a place for dinner unless a thoroughly elevated grilled cheese is what you're craving. It's a place for before and after dinner and late-night gatherings, a sweet spot in the Highlands to enjoy a nice selection of beverages and a few curated bites, from almonds, olives and pate to a choice of cheeses paired with a baguette.
