These images show how a historic department store could be transformed into a pub and restaurant.
The McGinty’s Group recently lodged £500,000 proposals for the former Esslemont and Macintosh department store in Aberdeen.
The ground-level Esslemont Bar and Restaurant will cater for up to 100 people and will feature a glass-fronted private dining room and contemporary bar.
The style and design were inspired by the original E&Ms, which operated on Union Street from the 1920s until its closure in 2007.
About 70 jobs are expected to be created.
Operations director Alan Aitken said: “The refurbishment works are well under way and we are delighted to unveil our visuals for The Esslemont Bar and Restaurant.
“Since the end of last year, we have been working closely with our design team to create our vision and, through various research trips all over the UK, we feel we have created something special to regenerate this iconic building.
“As always, quality is at the heart of our venues, from our interiors and furniture to our food and drink, and The Esslemont is no different.
“Of course, we want to acknowledge the historic charm of this venue while adding our quirky yet stylish touches to create something new for Aberdeen.
“We have a passion for Aberdeen and while we are excited to launch a new venue, we are also delighted to be able to create new jobs for the city.”
The Esslemont is due to open in the building later this summer. Upstairs from it will be a pizza restaurant, to be known as Mac’s Pizzeria.
