Amicus Apple is so achingly hip that it describes itself as more of a “lively social rendezvous” than a bar. Sporting a cool interior with bright colors and modern furniture, Amicus offers a plethora of New York style cocktails and a smart range of beer to enjoy. The place where it all began, the founding member (and flagship) of the now multiplying brand of Brewdog bars that are spread as far as Glasgow, Manchester and even Tokyo.
Most weekends you’ll find the Globe bouncing with atmosphere as the best of Aberdeen’s local bands take to the stage to showcase their talent. A well-known hotspot for those who love good bands and great atmosphere, this is probably not one for those of you who enjoy a quiet night out.
Proud of its no-television policy, Old Blackfriars understands exactly what makes a traditional pub tick. Atmosphere counts for a lot - and the period features in a site once owned by Dominican monks are enhanced by stained glass taken from a local chapel - but this cosy bar, with its 350-year-old bare brick walls and wooden floor, is a hit because of the pride it takes in the comfort-food menu, the changing line-up of real ales, the impressive malt whisky list and the welcome it gives to all comers.
Established in 1870 as a restaurant, the name has remained unchanged from that time. Situated in the heart of Aberdeen at 213 Union Street, this traditional bar is located directly opposite the Music Hall which plays host to a wide range of concerts and shows.
