Aberdeen Pubs and Bars 8: The Wild Boar

The Wild Boar

The story goes that the long main room of The Wild Boar, with its magnificent arched ceiling, used to belong to a painter and decorator whose apprentices would hone their skills on the elaborate cornicing. True or not, it’s certainly an impressive ceiling that adds a touch of class to this popular bar. Busy seven days a week, it’s the kind of place where it’s easy to settle down and get comfy with one of our 21 different gins or a bottle of Wine or Prosecco, whether it’s in the grand ground-floor room or the cosy downstairs space with its low lighting, cushioned couches and booth seating

Aberdeen Pubs and Bars 6: The College

The College Bar

“Taking its name from the old Christ’s College building in which it is housed, The College is a very welcome addition to the Aberdeen bar scene. Located on Union Street in the city’s thriving West End, it’s part of the PBDevco empire (the people behind Soul Casino, Soul Bar, Babylon, the Howff and the Bieldside Inn) but doesn’t feel particularly chain-y, having been done out sympathetically and stylishly. Flaming torches light your way as you cross the threshold; inside you’ll find cool stone floors, exposed brickwork and an abundance of blond wood and brushed steel. It’s an attractive urban space that combines the historic with the contemporary. By day it serves tasty deli lunches to the suited and the shoppers, but it really livens up in the evenings with an in-house DJ and a smart, lively crowd who are mainly in their late twenties and early thirties. Weeknights it’s a popular after work spot, though weekends it is more of a party destination. It also shows sporting events (the place boasts 2 HD projectors and 11 plasma screens) so whether that makes it a place to head for or to avoid on match days will depend on your attitude to the Beautiful Game. Cocktails are reasonably priced and though the menu is neither particularly exciting nor extensive, the usual suspects are all accounted for so you’re unlikely not to find something you like regulars should consider membership, which lets you buy cocktails for less than a fiver on Friday and Saturday nights. So if you find yourself athirst in the granite city, be sure to check this place out.”
