An Aberdeen bar is set to raise a toast to the end of one chapter earlier than expected as renovation work continues to advance.
No.10 Bar & Restaurant, which unveiled significant expansion plans at the start of the month, will close a week early to allow the major refurbishment to commence.
As part of the early closure, the directors are hosting an "End of Era" party on Saturday 25 July, and will bring a touch of the 80s back for the evening.
Director of No.10 Bar & Restaurant, Allan Henderson, said: “Since we first announced our plans, work has progressed quickly.
"So we have decided to close No.10 slightly earlier than expected as it will assist us to launch the new-look No.10 sooner than planned.
"As a thank you to all of the customers, we are hosting some farewell drinks and will throwback to the 80s history of the venue with classic food, drinks and music from the era, and possibly even some 80s prices.
"We want to see as many regulars, ex-staff and No.10 customers as possible, so we can celebrate the end of one chapter and the start of a new era."
Operations director No.10 Bar & Restaurant, Alan Aitken, said: "No.10 has been a very popular bar since it was first launched in 1986, with a large number of loyal customers who enjoyed popping in for a drink with friends or work colleagues.
"As we are redeveloping a West End institution, we feel it is important for the regulars and local residents to be involved with the project.
"So the party will be a great way to say goodbye to the existing No.10 and hello to the new No.10 Bar & Restaurant.”
Customers are invited to join the ‘End of Era’ party on July 25, from 5pm onwards and the directors have asked anyone with old photos of the venue to bring them along on the night.
The venue at 10 Queens Terrace is currently receiving a major re-development, transforming an adjoining office space into a stylish 90-seater restaurant with private dining facilities.
The new restaurant and bar is expected to open to the public by end of September.
