I have been to the Music Hall a number of times and every time it's fantastic, its a beautiful venue too. Was a little bit disappointed as we queued for a very long time to be at the very front and the fire alarm went off and we were all evacuated due to the not required smoke machine being on... More

I have been to the Music Hall a number of times over the years for music shows, comedians, magicians, and most recently, ceilidhs! This venue has good quality artists on a regular basis, to suit all tastes. The staff are all highly professional, smartly presented and friendly to talk to. They go out of their way to get everything 100%... More

A lovely building and great cafe. Popped into the cafe for lunch in lovely surroundings. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Very reasonable prices and pleasant staff. Good selection of shows throughout the year.

A lovely concert venue but the bar service at our visit this weekend was just plain embarrassing despite it being quiet....actually the service may explain why the bar was so quiet. The bar was manned by several very young and seemingly inexperienced girls who obviously need some supervision or training, as they were all very quiet and painfully slow. For... More

Apart from being a beautiful interior, the quality of the sound (especially from the balcony) is outstanding. It's worth going to any concert just to hear for yourself.

I have been to see numerous shows here over the years from opera, to school concerts and poetry readings and they have all been run by the hall with the same top notch standards. Everything is very clean and the staff are welcoming and friendly. There is also a lovely café on site. Parking is difficult, as with many city... More

Just been to see Sarah Millican at the Music Hall - great venue and a fun show. Aberdeen is very lucky to have a spot like this that is so versatile and able to present everything from rock concerts to opera in such a comfortable spot.

Went to see Avenue Q here when it was on and the venue was very cosy, I would definitely go back to see something being put on there, although some folk appeared not to get seats moments before the show so that was a bit awkward and there was no parking nearby but other than that great sound and good...

Mostly I attend the Music Hall for orchestral concerts. The acoustic is fine, the decor pleasing to the eye. The seating is comfortable enough. It's a good venue which serves its purpose.
