There’s plenty to keep you busy when the lights go down here in the city. Aberdeen’s lively nightlife has many options for those looking for something stylish, traditional or entertaining.
Aberdeen’s evening scene can be enjoyed at one of the many traditional pubs, craft beer taverns or lavish cocktail bars. Soul Bar is an impressive space, converted from a historic church and still retains some of its original features including stained glass windows, high ceilings and church organ.
There is also a popular club scene with eight different clubs covering a wide genre of music and themes from 80s and 90s to R&B and dance. Club Tropicana and Vogue are the perfect destinations for a fun night out playing the greatest hits of the 80’s & 90’s - get ready to dance all night. For those looking for something a little more current, NOX and Babylon are amongst the city’s most sophisticated and fashionable clubs.
Looking for something a bit underground? We’ve got that too - literally. The Tunnels, quietly nestled under Union Street, has become one of the city’s best live music venues. Aberdonian Emeli Sande held an intimate gig here, she used to regularly play at the venue when she was starting out.
Aberdeen is also popular for hen do’s and stag do’s with a lively nightlife that won’t disappoint.
