Gem of a building right on Union Street. Great concert venue, cafe and bar. Parking is hopeless around the building as it's for shorter stay only. If your visit is for several... read more

His Majesty's Theatre is my No 1 choice of performing arts venue in Aberdeen, but the Music Hall comes second! We were at two concerts there in May - Ruby Wax & Paul Merton and Chums. It is a great venue for all sorts of concerts and shows. Scheduled to close for 2 years for major refurbishment, the city centre... More

Most of the Aberdeen's events are located in Music hall, however, most of the times the place is packed and the scene is not big enough. There is a bar which expects just cash and has small variety of soft/alcoholic drinks.

Went to see Freddie mercury impersonator. The show was not great, but the building is very old fashioned, and really nice to see an spoilt building. The architecture is fantastic. Don't be expecting new seats this is an untouched building.

We went to Paul Merton's Impromptu friends on Saturday 16th May 2015. It is based roughly around the "Whose Line is it Anyway" format, but it has been developed and made much funnier. The performers are superb, the audience are actively invited to participate and the whole place rocked with laughter from start to finish. If this show comes back... More
