5/5 home from home

I grew up in the Moorings and have recently started going back, what can I say? Wonderful bar and wonderful people. Live shows are excellent and the juke box is the best. A real home from home for any rock fan.

bit more detail...

There are live bands every Saturday from 8:30-12. Every Sunday, open-mic (good fun!) and three things you must know: 1. Probably the best selection of alcohol in Aberdeen. 2. Check out the jukebox! It's a treat:) 3. If you go dressed up as a pirate on a Saturday you get in for free (and maybe get a drink free, too?)

Moorings Bar

As a regular drinker in this bar, I can say that it is the definitive Rock bar in Aberdeen. The jukebox contains a variety of rock bands, the bar has a pirate theme (which includes 10% discount if you come dressed as a pirate) and there are an assortment of bands playing at the weekends. They have Absinthe on optics (3 different strengths) and a Jagermeister machine that is the most used in Scotland.

The best bar in the world!

I've traveled quite a bit around the world, and I think the Moorings bar is THE best bar in the world! The Moorings features the legendary jukebox which contains music from Weird Al too Cannibal Corpse. The bar has a great selection of beer, rum and the most exotic beverages from around the world! DJ night every Friday, gigs every Saturday and open mic jam night every Sunday. The place is under a pirate theme so you will get 10% off if you come dressed as a pirate. See you there!
