Well if you’re wanting to know the best place to go to grab a pint or a cocktail as a student then you’ve come to the right place as we’ve found five of the best bars in Aberdeen that offer student-friendly prices.

Take a look below and let us know if you think there’s a bar we missed at

Siberia Bar & Hotel

Nestled in the heart of Aberdeen, Siberia Bar & Hotel is one of the city’s top student hotspots when it comes to food and drink, particularly if it’s cocktails you’re after.

With eye-catching drinks such as the “Just be good to Green” or “The Little Red Corvette” available, there is a whole host to get stuck into in this bar.

The venue on Belmont Street has a loyalty card scheme, The Siberia Wolf Pack Card, that allows holders to get many deals on drinks, including their sister business, Twisted Sister Drinks, and have an enticing beer garden so you don’t need to be cooped up inside.

The Bobbin

Situated on King Street, this welcoming and informal bar is a great place to meet up with friends, relax, watch the big sporting events on TV or even trying some of their street food-inspired drinks.

Why not soak up the last of the summer sun in their beer garden too?

They also have various deals throughout the month especially for students so it’s worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page for those.

Address: 500 King Street, Aberdeen AB24 5ST
