Soul is really different to your usual bar. It was once a church, and all the stained glass windows and stone-work is still in place, which makes it really stand out from the other bars in the city. It is a really big space with rooms going off to the back, so it never gets too busy. The decor is really nice (but very dark) and trendy, they've worked well with the original designs and added personal touches, such as a DJ booth in pulpit.
I was disappointed with their wine - it was really quite warm. Warm wine offends me. Their food is delicious, however. I can highly recommend the duck wrap and chicken caesar salad - yummy.
I always come back to Soul when I'm in Aberdeen, because I know it's a winner.

This is probably one of the most popular and largest bars in Aberdeen.
It is very central on Union St and is busy every night of the week.
The prices for drinks are up their with the most expensive in Aberdeen so you will find that it can be filled with oil-industry workers with plenty of cash to splash.
On a Friday or Saturday night you will get the trendy 20 somethings coming down for a drink and possibly a boogie - there is a DJ usually spinning some excellent, funky tunes in the pulpit. Oh, thats because its a converted church.
The food is OK, menu is varied mix of cuisines so theres usually something to suit.
If, you havent spent all your money on drinks then you can go upstairs after (different entrance though) and blow the rest of it in the Soul casino.
