I have been here on many occasions over the years. It is my favourite concert venue....small enough to be fairly intimate and to be able to see the performers...but large enough to have great acoustics. You have to be speedy to get to the bar during the interval.

The bar seating could be better, it resembled a soup kitchen. Range of drinks on offer was good and service speedy. Seating in the venue itself was out of place... it looked temporary in a old style hall. Decor was a bit dated too, a lot of 1980s fake marble columns that fool nobody. A lick of paint would bring...

I've been to the music hall many times over the years for shows and gigs and I always look forward to coming as the building inside is just so amazing. Apparently you can get married inside which I wish I knew! The acoustics are really good if it's a music show you're seeing - we've never come out dissapointed. Tip... More

Went here to listen to a concert by BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra which was wonderful. Pity it wasn't better supported as there were quite a few spare seats. It's a fine old fashioned venue which I believe is receiving a seven million pound face lift next year. I hope it doesn't spoil the charm of the place.

Good central location. Useful daytime coffee bar/café. Typical Victorian décor, solid and reassuring. Very popular and high usage by folks of Aberdeen. Plenty of very helpful staff on duty during functions. Front entrance has a lot of steps, but there is disabled access to side and rear of building. Seating is fairly good - but, many of the seats to... More

Entrance to the show was simple, the bar was well stocked and cheaper than the local pubs, albeit the queue was a bit long, normal for these venues really. View of the stage was good but the seats were a little small and uncomfortable after a while. Would still go here again though.

During the interval at a concert I bought a drink ... The man nest to me knocked it over - the barmaid asked if I'd like another one (which I assumed was free) and then went on to charge me! I said not to bother with it and she made a retort to the man to pay for it ...... More
