When I venture to the dark cold north, or as some people choose to call it Aberdeen, to visit friends I quite often end up in here. As there is a goodly range of fine draft beverages and the atmosphere is very conducive to an old ex-headbanger like me.
It is one of these places that is very layed back with a dress code that consists of you must be wearing at least something to cover your modesty. The clientele vary but the majority may be referred to as tending towards the rockier side of musical taste.
Frequent band nights make it a good night as well.
I love Moorings Bar. The first time I came in here, I asked for cider. They have three ciders on tap, and I couldn't make up my mind, so they gave me sizable samples of all three for free. Major points for the fabulous selection of both domestic and imported beer and cider. The open mic is a mixed bag and has a slightly rougher edge than the usual sappy singer-songwriter night. I'm not sure what it's like now as I haven't been there in two years (moved to New York), but the vibe was harbor punk when I was there. The general area has a seedy element, so look out.
Another favourite. Great selection of rare beers. Great character within this place. Random bands keep it refreshed and it is a good one for spending hours in. The staff are very friendly and it another open-minded outlet where people can express themselves however they wish whether they be a pirate or not. :)
enjoyed drinking and playing at the moorings but not now.seems mr flash thinks that the darts are not for his pub. hope his decision proves the right one as the darters spend money for nine months of the year every monday and that works out to be an average of roughly 38 mondays when at least 10 people would be spending before,during & after a darts match.then include the away players every second week.good thinking mr flash !!!
