"The nightlife is perhaps the best aspect of the city and you will not find a shortage of pubs and clubs to visit. There are many student and non-student-oriented pubs/bars to choose from, there's a good variety."
"There is a good selection for craft beers and such. There's a couple of nice cocktail and whiskey bars too."
"All of the pubs and clubs are very centrally located, which makes for a great night that doesn't include taxis anywhere."
"There is a great range of pubs and clubs in Aberdeen."
"There are lots of different clubs and bars in Aberdeen that are very student friendly and offer student discounts."
"There's a good selection of clubs but a night out is expensive."


"Theatre, cinema, night life, art gallery, bowling, gym, beach."
"The night life is good but there could be a wider selection."
"There are plenty of smaller clubs and there's somewhere to go on any night of the week. Anything else (bowling etc) is a 20-minute bus ride away and the bus doesn't go late enough at night."
"Good opportunities for entertainment but nothing special."
"Bars and pubs are better than nightclubs in Aberdeen."
"There is plenty to do in town. Lots of bars and nightclubs that host student nights during the week and there are lots of cinemas, sporting places and so on that you can go to as well if you don't fancy a night out."
"There are lots of clubs and pubs but I usually do salsa dancing and the parties are not as amazing as they are in Edinburgh or London."
"You have very different bars, pubs and clubs within Aberdeen. There's a good variety of music and styles."
"There is a decent number of outdoor activities and parks if you're willing to run/bike/commute a ways."
"Bars, restaurants, cinema, ice rink, theatre, beach, pubs, nightclubs."
