Ah, day two of glorious sunshine this week and we’re loving it (from the confines of the office anyway)! But if you’re lucky enough to be able to bask in the sun’s hot, hot, hot rays this week, we’re pretty sure you’re going to want to soak up the sun with some cool cocktails and thirst quenching beers in a beer garden.
With so much choice for al fresco drinking in the north-east now, there’s plenty of venues for everyone to chose from.
From beer and gin gardens, to rooftop terraces and everything else in between, we’ve pulled together a round up of some of the top places to head to in Aberdeen for a drink in the sun.
You can’t miss the stunning Soul Bar which sits in the heart of Aberdeen on the city’s Union Street. With a fantastic, fresh food it’s a great place to enjoy the sun and grab a drink too.
