Shop on The Green
Aberdeen's alternative shopping scene is concentrated on either side of Union Street. Heading toward Aberdeen Art Gallery there's busy Belmont Street, while toward the harbor visit the quieter 14th century medieval quarter, The Green. Home to a surf shop, urban streetwear store, and music outlet where you could while away many, many hours, The Green is also known for its excellent restaurants Cafe 52 and Bistro Verde, both of which have popular summertime terraces where you can dine al fresco on the piazza. Yes, in Aberdeen.
