A seasoned tip: Buying tickets online will be cheaper than on the door if you know you're definitely going to go to that night!


Nox girls probably wear heels on a night out, and Nox boys will likely be buying a bottle package at the bar with a Rolex or Rolex-esque watch on their arm.

With 2 floors playing a range of music, based on their different nights, you'll definitely find a night to fit your vibe at some point during the week.

Monday: Nox just launched Story Mondays playing house, anthems and dance with drinks from £1 and booths from £50.

Tuesday: Another new launch, Apres Tuesdays! Providing something a little different with funky house and retro ski inspired music.

Thursday: On Thursday Nox brings you Milk, an established night in the Scottish nightlife scene across Edinburgh and Glasgow too. Milk provides the all things hiphop, RnB, house and anthems.

Friday: Get out your best leopard print gowns cause it's Jungle Friday, a night full of your favourite disco and pop bangers.


Exodus is the hidden gem of the Aberdeen nightlife scene. Above Triplekirks and with free entry all night on their popular Monday 80's night, you can expect "Come on Eileen" and £6 pitchers. Dreamy.

You'll probably find 2nd years and beyond here hiding from you the new baby freshers, but don't tell them we told you.

Exo is open every night of the week with free entry all night, except on Friday and Saturday which is free only til Midnight.

Full descriptions of their nights can be found on their Facebook page.


Also a gig venue and known for their quality techno and dance events.

If the cheesy commercial club scene makes you cringe, Tunnels is the place for you.

Based under a Tunnel, it also provides one of the best smoking areas in the Deen along with a DJ in a tuk tuk providing the soundtrack to your smoke.
