    Aberdeen is a city built by using gray stones that give such color to the entire city. This square is surrounded by buildings austere grays and the Center has a building around which you hold historically the market (if I understand the construction certifies the Royal licence to keep businesses).

    One would assume that the good citizens of Aberdeen are fairly indifferent to this pleasant area as nothing is happening.There is what appears to bean ancient shelter or bandstand.Must do better.  more »

    It's here at to a larger space with some benches. When we were there it had issued various old buses. Later was nothing more except for the cross. Can be used as a starting point for strolling along Union Street.

  • Rapidly expanding chain of bars. This is Aberdeen's 2nd and probably the better one for new customers, though the original tends to have more 'dedicated' customers. Good beer selection, and the attached bottle-shop means a large number of guest beers are available.
  • Such a worthwhile experience to enter into the Brewdog universe. The beers are delicious, food is reasonably priced and the staff is very helpful. I hope I can come back some time soon.
  • Great beer and potentially good burgers except current health regs oblige the chefs to cook the burgers to hell and back. If you want yr burger rare or medium rare or even medium, forget it. Any decent place will break these stupid rules and serve you a rare burger if that's how you like it. If the mince is not pink ie grey they shouldn't be using it anyway. So 1 star for their rock hard, over-cooked, follow-the-stupid-rules burgers. Otherwise, nice place.
  • The draft beers available here get better and better, both Brewdog's own creations and the guest brews. If you're particularly picky then the bottle shop should have something close to what you are looking for. Enjoy some Brewdog in the place where it all started.
  • Great food options, some of the best in the city, and although the beer options are good, they are usually lacking. Not a lot on draught usually, and although you have a good selection of beers for sale in the bottle shop, it can become expensive because it isn't the cheapest to begin with, and the "corkage" charge adds up...
