This is where we go to heal our hurts. Or at least where we go when we want a fabulous cocktail in Aberdeen city centre. Soul is a bar that makes guests cross themselves when they enter, not least because it’s set in a former church on the corner of Union Street and Bon-Accord Street. Reconsecrated as a gathering place for refined drinks and soul food that walks the walk from British to American classics, the stunning venue has retained the stained glass windows and high ceilings of the original. On the mixology side, Soul boasts the biggest selection of rums in Aberdeen and a great range of regional Scotch whiskies. On the food side you can get creative with Asian dishes, classic with American hot dogs, or get comfortable with the Soul signature burger.
Dear diners, please be aware that tables booked online are available for 2 hours only. To enquire about a lengthier booking, please contact the restaurant directly.

Great time - Booking was easy online, good reminders and contact before the event and very well looked after during. Food could only be described as outstanding and having a bit round table was great as allowed everyone to mix well and be involved. Paul and his staff at Soul went above and beyond to ensure Team Tinto had a great time and were very professional, pleasant and attentive at all times.
Awesome place! Great atmosphere and cocktails. Dinner was lovely and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back. Think I've found my new favourite place for a night out.
Love this restaurant, always a good atmosphere and food always great.
It was amazing. The food was good and the waiters really cheerful. Everything was great and we will back to the soul if we go back to Edinburgh.
Food was excellent, great atmosphere, staff very good. they should not serve tonic from the mixer tap, only sell bottles, the only minus was the fact that the staff would sometimes give you bottles of tonic then other times they would give you the mixer tonic, , especially the waiter who was serving us he knew we were drinking gin and bottle tonic but then he would bring another gin with tonic from the mixer tap!!!!,. but we had a really good night. we would recommend Soul and we will go back.
This Location is a verry good place to enjoy a good meal and drinks. when we stay next in aberdeen, we will visit the Soul church again. Best wishes from Germany Bernd & Geli www.bomb.de.com
Had a lovely lunch here after being given an itison voucher. There were plenty of places to sit, the place is huge. A lovely setting. The food on offer is high quality, an excellent and varied selection. We had the chocolate fondant for pudding and it was delicious. I would certainly go back to try a few other things on the menu, the choice is really high end for very affordable prices.
Yesterday we had a Christmas dinner booked for 8. Upon arrival, we were shown to our table. Everything looked great but before we could sit down another customer informed the staff that table was already taken. After checking the reservation, we had to wait whilst another table got set up, which was absolutely fine with us. This table was crammed next to the fire escape, which was open at the time meaning it was freezing cold, with no decorations, just a couple of menus. We complained at this point to our waitress as to why we hadn't received any crackers etc. We were swiftly ignored and from that point on nobody came to take any food orders. The manager looked over but even he ignored the situation. Even as we left to find somewhere else to eat nobody bothered to check if anything was wrong. Never had such bad service whenever we've been to Soul whether it's been for drinks or food. Extremely disappointed and won't be going back anytime soon.
Unfortunately the menu has shrunk, no starters!! and the kids menu was a little disappointing, we had to get a burger from the adult menu for my granddaughter, although we did only have to pay the kids price for it which was very good of them. Good enough service, the waitresses were lovely but we did have a bit of a wait for our food. All in all though we had a lovely time while we were there. Please bring back a more substantial menu.
Food was very good and service was pretty decent considering just a few wait staff for a few big tables. Only issue was the high prices for a lunch meal. There were only a tiny handful of "lunch" items available (soup and sandwich combo for £6) - everything else was at "all day prices." Would probably go more often if more extensive lunch menu available.
