A Guide To Dundee Nightlife

You might like to check out the local nightlife before visiting one of our 25 luxury serviced apartments in Dundee, Scotland. Dundee has a lot to offer, including vibrant nightlife. You won't miss out on any of the fun since our serviced apartments are only a short walk from the city's top restaurants and pubs in Dundee's West End. Here's our comprehensive guide to the city's top attractions.

Bird & Bear

Most guests are struck by Bird & Bear's stunning decor, which includes indigo walls, copper piping, floor-to-ceiling greenery, and exquisite birdcages. The menu, which includes boozy milkshakes and Instagrammable cocktails, is designed to fit any time of day, demonstrating the bar's meticulous attention to detail. This is the place to go if you're looking for a laid-back, low-key environment.


Draffens is a speakeasy in the style of the Roaring Twenties. Since launching in 2017, it has become too popular to stay a true secret, yet it maintains an enjoyable atmosphere concealed inside Couttie's Wynd and marked by a single lamp. The Draffens of Dundee department store, which was a high-street institution for nearly 150 years before shutting in the early 1980s, inspired the pub's name. Draffens the bar has a similar old-timey vibe with its burgundy and dark green colour scheme, exposed brick walls, and soft patterned carpets.

Abandon Ship 

Abandon Ship is a pub with an American feel. Renowned Australian artist Steen Jones painted the outside, and the walls are covered in Richard Davies' hand-drawn artwork covering 70 square metres (753 square feet). On tap, you'll find more than 70 craft beers, as well as a few cocktails. You can get customised clothes at the bar, which is unavailable anywhere else. Traditional pub fare is available on the menu, along with an extensive selection of vegan choices.

The King of Islington

Introducing the King of Islington, Scotland's best rum bar. At the Scottish Licensed Trade News (SLTN) Awards in 2018, The King of Islington was crowned Rum Bar of the Year by the publication. One hundred twenty rums from all around the world are on display, as well as bottles that are no longer available for purchase. What else can we say?..

The Blue Room

The Blue Room, which opened in Dundee in June of this year, is one of the city's newest establishments. It's an Italian-style amaro and aperitivo bar. They provide typical aperitivo hours, with charcuterie plates, cheeses, and meats, as well as wine and beer. Located in the same building as Draffens speakeasy bar, it provides an intimate atmosphere with 35 tables. White marble tabletops and old-fashioned floor-to-ceiling windows complement the blue walls of the building.
