Part of a popular Aberdeen pub is set to be turned into a Tex-Mex restaurant.
The Hawthorn Bar and Adam Lounge are to be overhauled in a £100,000 renovation, with the lounge turned into a restaurant run by North-east street food eatery FreshMex.
The venue is to change its name to The Adams and The Hawthorn, and provide a sit-in and takeaway service to customers.
The venue on Holburn Street will be redecorated in a modern style, with a menu including burritos, fajitas, nachos and tacos and will have about 60 tables.
The bar in the Hawthorn side of the business is to be moved so it backs against the same wall as the bar in the Adam Lounge, to make way for a walkway between the kitchen and lounge.
Work has already started ahead of the grand opening.
Bert and Jean Adams established the pub in the 1970s before handing it to son Eric, who took the helm around 30 years ago.
Now Eric’s son Philip is hoping to enhance the popularity of the bar.
Philip said: “Far from ignoring our history, we’re embracing it and moving with the times.
“FreshMex will be serving quick, fresh food while we maintain the casual pub atmosphere of the new-look Adams.”
FreshMex was launched in April last year by Aberdeen men Calum Wright and Robbie Moult and has catered and served street food at a number of events so far. This will be its first fixed site.
Robbie said: “We never thought FreshMex would have an outlet in the city centre after 12 months but the reaction from the public so far has been overwhelmingly positive.”
