The Abercrombie: rising above the pack

Fact fans will note The Abercrombie is the last remaining property in Aberdeen with a 'sunk' - or external basement - and is the only place on Union Street with stairs. That's not the only way this lively bar stands out from the crowd.

With one big screen, five plasma TVs and two Sky boxes, it draws in a crowd in search of football, rugby, Formula One and other major fixtures.

Also popular are the pool table and the beer garden at the rear.
