  • SO...

    A brand new sandwich shop and cafe opening on the corner of Union Street and Bon Accord Street in Aberdeen's City Centre on 01/06/2015. Delicious selections of sandwiches, toasties, pulled meat buns, cakes and sweet treats and much more, including an exclusive house blend coffee and range of loose leaf teas.


    Babylon is Aberdeen's premier nightclub, situated above The College Bar. It has always been known as one of the city's coolest nightspots due to its gothic, yet contemporary interior, and possesses the appeal of being an intimate but high-energy nightclub. The gothic interiors fit perfectly with the history of the building, as it was once an old monk's monastery.


    The College continues to be one of the city's most popular West End sports bar venues. Situated in the West End of Aberdeen at the top of Union Street, it boasts two HD projectors and 11 plasmas; perfect for watching all sporting events. Plus, it has drinks promotions available 7 days a week.

PB Devco have gained many awards, including SLTN's Independent Multiple Operator of the Year for three years, Licensee of the Year, and Best Bar None's Gold Awards, plus Director Stuart Clarkson was awarded SLTN's Industry Achievement Award in 2013.


    Situated in the heart of Aberdeen's City Centre, Soul is one of Aberdeen's most popular and unique venues. Located within the former Langstane Church, it is a stunning example of a modern conversion with a twist. It places an emphasis on image with opulent decor, stained glass windows, and dimmed lighting creating a laid-back, relaxing atmosphere.


    "There are other casinos…Then there's Soul Casino." Soul Casino is Aberdeen's most exclusive West End casino. Housed in a stunning church conversion, this striking venue has been transformed. Keeping all of the original features, including the stained glass windows, stunning high ceilings and church organ, it is the most glamorous casino in Aberdeen. Membership is free with immediate entry.

PB Devco work with local, reputable suppliers to ensure we bring an excellent quality of dining to each venue. Experience Scottish fine dining at its best at Dizzy's with their speciality steaks, elegant Asian cuisine at Zen Oriental, or delicious gastropub fare at Soul and The Bieldside Inn.


    In May 2015, Jill & Hytham Bedawi, the owners of the popular Stage Door Restaurant purchased Dizzy's, saving the venue from closure. Since, they have closed the doors of their popular pre-theatre venue on North Silver Street and brought The Stage Door's ethos of quality food and wine and excellent service to the new Dizzy's.



    Situated in the heart of the City, Zen Oriental will provide a dining experience like no other. The restaurant has a cool and contemporary interior, with a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. The extensive menu, complimented by the professionally selected wine list, is further enhanced by a standard of service and attention to detail which is second to none.


    Situated to the west of Aberdeen, but within the City limits, The Bieldside Inn offers various areas of relaxation and dining space to suit your mood including the lounge bar, the restaurant and the outdoor balcony. "The Bielder" has built and maintained a reputation for high levels of service and delicious, quality food menus, why not come down and see for yourself?


    Situated in the heart of Aberdeen, The Forum offers a unique entertainment experience. With a history rooted in entertainment culture, The Forum was once part of the City's Union Hall and Theatre, which was restored as an Art Deco cinema house. Many of the building's original features still remain, and a recent contemporary refurbishment has added to the distinctive atmosphere and environment of the venue.


    A name familiar to us all; we have our own Queen Vic right here in Aberdeen, located in the City's highly sought-after Rosemount area. It may not have the Mitchells, but it does have the same traditional community pub atmosphere, and is everything you'd expect your local to be and more.


    The Howff is the newest addition to the PBDevco portfolio, and also one of the last remaining traditional pubs on Union Street. It has recently had a fantastic refurbishment throughout November 2013, and boasts a comfortable, fresh and welcoming new decor as well as a delicious new menu.


    The Stage Door Restaurant offers a truly unique dining experience. Placed in the heart of Aberdeen's cultural centre, it is ideally located close to both His Majesty's Theatre and the Music Hall. Performing for over 14 years, it is ranked as one of Aberdeen's most reputable and popular dining establishments, with an atmosphere second to none.
