There’s no disputing Snafu’s credibility, regularly in the Top 100 Club lists, Scottish Night Club of The Year 2008, a musical programme complied with the best. Our little boutique nightspot is the premiere destination of those in-the-know. Unpretentious with a friendly atmosphere, existing not for the masses, but instead meeting the needs of a smaller eclectic and vibrant crowd who are looking for more. Nestled at the historic Castlegate, Snafu is located away from the main drag and so avoids the cliché crowds, creating a safe haven for the more discerning music lover.
With an extensive range of award-winning and unique spirits, a quirky cocktail menu and delightful wine and champagne menu, Snafu questions the rule that nightclubs can’t compete with style bars when it comes to service and choice.
Our events programme is full to bursting with live bands, stand up comedy and of course world class DJs. Playing host to the likes of (let it roll off the tongue) - Booka Shade, Damian Lazarus, Optimo, Vitalic, Sebo K, MANDY, Dyed Soundorom, Blawan, James Lavelle, Erol Alkan, Fabrizio Maurizi, Filthy Dukes, Hot Chip, Q-Bert, MSTRKRFT, Glimpse, Silicone Soul, Italoboyz, Troy Pierce, Steve Bug, Jesse Rose, Joris Voorn, Boys Noize and Ivan Smagghe, Snafu has made Aberdeen a weekend destination for many clubbers not only in Scotland but from all over the UK.

Where to stay
If you ain't from round here, here are a few accomodation options.
The Carmelite Hotel
Stirling Street, Aberdeen, AB11 6JU - Tel: 01224 589101 Fax: 01224 574288
In our opinion the best hotel in Aberdeen by a country mile. Dating back to the 1820's, the hotel recently re-opened following a £2.5 million refurbishment. Award winning designers Surface designed the suites, each with a different theme.The Best, Cabanel, Japanese, Laundry, Antique and Bullnose Suites, all of which have the wow factor and ooze sex appeal. Very luxurious and surprisingly affordable. Room rates vary from £55 to £225 per night.
(about a 5 minute walk from Snafu)
The Aberdeen Douglas Hotel
43-45, Market St, Aberdeen, AB11 5EL - Tel. 01224 582 255
Nice hotel, free WI-FI is you're thinking about work, and ideal wedding venue apparently.

Premier Travel Inn
West North Street Aberdeen Aberdeenshire AB24 5AR - Tel: 0870 990 6300 Fax: 0870 990 6301
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Rooms cost £59 a night. It's basic, but it does the job. Perfect if you just want to get your head down.
