A north-east craft beer company is to open a second bar in Aberdeen.
BrewDog has bought the ground floors of the Athenaeum building on Union Street which previously housed The Athenaeum bar on the ground floor and nightclub Snafu in the basement before it closed last year.
The Ellon-quartered firm already has a bar on the city’s Gallowgate and announced the news of the next at its recent annual general meeting.
A BrewDog spokeswoman said the firm was “stoked” to be launching its second Aberdeen site.
He added: “A second Aberdeen bar has been on our agenda for a while now following huge demand from locals.
“Being home to our original, flagship bar on Gallowgate, we’re excited to be offering a second venue in Aberdeen to enjoy awesome beers from ourselves and our favourite breweries from around the world.
“We’ve got a large number of Equity for Punks shareholders in Aberdeen who are massive advocates of BrewDog, and we’re heeding their call for a second Aberdeen craft beer bar.”
