Started many a night out in the 90's in Oscar's with either Oscars cocktail (£1-50) and/or a pint (£1) during happy hour(s). Think it was from 18-00 to 20-00 and then it was off to Berlins from 20-00 to 22-00 for spin the wheel 80's prices and then generally ended up in either Franklins, the Cotton Club or Barney Rubbles

Used to go to Oscars straight after work on a Friday when we were 17, 5-6 pints then the bus back to BoD to get changed and back into toon for a night out. The good old days when you used to manage the whole night out for 30-40 quid. Also used to go to Bex Bar looking to grab yourself a 'MILF', which was basically anything over the age of 25. Women over 28 being real granny territory. All that line of bars Bex, Franklyns, O'Donoghue's used to be absolutely hoaching at the weekends.

Ah the memories.

I mind when I was 18 pulling an older quine on the top floor of Franklyn's.

Home to her hoose in Kincorth for some fun on her waterbed and enhanced funbags.

Them were the days indeed.

Henry J Beans straight after work for happy hour - sure they did 10 minute promotions like 3 bottles of Becks for the price of one. Their rack of BBQ sticky ribs for tea then on to the next happy hour somewhere else. Those were the days.

Cotton Club was a regular haunt of mine but for pullin birds Franklyn’s was the place, all ages, shapes and sizes. You could take your pick or just get pished and go with whatever was left over at the end of the night. HaHa.

IIRC Henry J Beans was £1.25 a cocktail in happy hour in the late 80s. 8 B-52s for a tenner, great way to start the night :)

Peep Peeps

Harbour pub crawl used to be brilliant - about a dozen pubs.  Lucky if there's 3 or 4 left.

Crows Nest, Fittie Bar, Peep Peeps, St Clements bar, Cutters Wharf, Crown & Anchor, Moorings, Regent Bar, Schooner, Criterion.  I've no doubt missed a few

Was discussing this with the old man over Christmas.

Crown and Anchor is one we forgot the name of. Might stick on The Harbour again, the wifey was an absolute legend.

Cutters Wharf is where I had my first ever pint 'in toon' when I was 15.

Wee trip to 'Claire's Bar' from the Schooner as well and watch the comings and goings from the wee whore hoose out the back.

Lost it's character.

Glenlivet - my first pint in the toon aged 15.

Used to pop in for a couple now and again to see an old drinking buddy - he was notoriously fussy about his Tennents and would only booze there

Still has the Pegasus nightclub sign up next door, canna be far off 20 years since that was on the go. 

 

Id imagine the Neptune is preserved exactly as it was but covered in dust and dead blue bottles. 

Went to a blue comedian and stripper night as an underager still at school at the Neptune, absolute cheap thrill seeing the lassies fannys. The comedian picked on us though.

Radars was owned by a guy who had the ground nieghbouring our place ,still owns a great skelp of it though it's all in trees now, 

Last I heard of him he was in South Africa and had a hotel.

Radar was the name of one of his dogs,

The other was called sonar.

As a boy used to have the odd trip to the Argo bar, on a Friday lunchtime after going to mart  or getting feed at North Eastern farmers,

Used to enjoy a plate of stovied whilst perusing the performers at the the Argo
