My friend loves the jam jar. He makes us go every time we visit Aberdeen and hopes to carry on this tradition for centuries. The bar is decent and the drinks are cheap. The clientele is fantastic. Wear dark sunglasses.

We visited for a hen party on 5th May. Brilliant from start to finish. Really relaxed atmosphere. Great banter from the barman Jamie. Cocktails were good...not the cheap watered down kind.
