It might only be day two of the working week, but that hasn’t stopped many of us counting down the minutes until pub o’clock.
But with the bar scene in Aberdeen undergoing a change or two in the last few years, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to visit old haunts.
Those who experienced the city’s entertainment in the 80s will definitely remember boozing in venues with chrome mirrors and grey and black carpets.
From having a few too many on a Thursday night in Cousins and attempting to scoff two bowls of spag-bol in Radar’s, these 15 obsolete bars will bring you right back to the 80s.
1) Benson’s, Windmill Brae
2) Tatler’s, Crown Street
3) Oh Henry’s, Adlephi
4) Sweepers, Hadden Street

5) Radar’s, Belmont Street
The place to go if you wanted to get stuffed – you got a free plate of spag bol if you finished your first one.
6) Cousins Lounge Bar, Union Street
It’s an 80s club that fits the stereotype.
7) Magellans, Great Western Road
8) Cafe Ici, Union Street
The place to go if you wanted to pose with a glass of wine and watch passers by.
9) Belmont Lounge, Belmont Street
10) Henry J Bean’s, Windmill Brae
11) Earls Court Hotel, Queen’s Road
12) The Tappit Hen, Back Wynd
The quiet-pint-or-six after-work sort of place.
