New images show how an Aberdeen nightclub could look after its £800,000 revamp is completed.
Following the closure of the Institute last month, ATIK on Bridge Place will open its doors on Friday, August 31.
Nightclub operator The Deltic Group is investing the cash to transform the venue into its latest reincarnation.
Built as The Palace Theatre in 1898, the building was renovated and turned into a cinema in 1931 before becoming the Palace Ballroom in 1959, then Fusion Nightclub in 1976.
The club was also known as Ritzy’s and The Palace before Liquid opened in 2003, becoming The Institute in 2012.
General manager Ruth Jones said: “The venue was a big part of the town’s nightlife for a number of years, both as the Institute and Liquid before that.
“Many people have happy memories of fun times here but it’s time to bring something new to Aberdeen and the very best we can offer in terms of a clubbing experience.
“We want to thank everyone who came out to say a fond farewell to the Institute but now we’re focusing on spending the summer transforming the place to reopen as ATIK, with Vinyl and Curve.”
The new nightspot will have three distinct rooms with ATIK showcasing light and sound technology, Vinyl aimed at those who enjoy classic pop and Curve which will play the latest RnB chart hits.
Ruth added: “We can’t wait to deliver a fantastic venue and nights out for existing and new customers.
“We’ve more than doubled the number of booths and we’ve got some fun touches including inflatable guitars and dress-up items in Vinyl to make every night a party night.”
In disco-themed Vinyl, five of the VIP areas will have their own private flashing dance floor.
The club, which will have a capacity of 1,540, is also looking for 30 new full and part-time positions including bar staff and hospitality and sales assistants as part of the changes, with a recruitment drive expected soon.
