The hotel, which is operated by hospitality management firm RBH, said the new space called ‘Coast and Keg’ has been designed by ICA, and has seen the existing space open up to create a “welcoming, spacious, flexible dining area”.
The original three dining areas have been turned into a single open space offering a modern design and an ease of flow for all guests. Taking inspiration from Aberdeen’s heritage and culture, including famous figures and topography, the new interiors also include digital menus and a self-order app.
To mark the restaurant opening, RBH said head chef David Proctor has curated a new menu of seasonal dishes utilising the” best of local producers and suppliers”.
Ian Burleigh, ICA executive chairman, said: “ICA are delighted to have worked with the team at Altens to target investment in this popular hotel. The transformation of the restaurants and bar provide wonderful spaces for people to meet and spend time together in a relaxed and well-designed environment.”
Kris Manship, general manager of The Aberdeen Altens Hotel, added: “Our new, multi-faceted dining environment really reflects the diversity of our guests and represents a major advancement in our food and beverage offering.
“Everything is new from the crockery and glassware to the furniture and interiors – even the team uniforms. We’re delighted with the final result, which perfectly suits business and family visitors as well as groups of friends. We can’t wait to start welcoming our first guests.”
