The Chester Hotel has recently unveiled a new bar, as part of a seven-figure redevelopment of the hotel.
The four-silver-star hotel in Aberdeen’s west end opened The Gallery, a 115 sqm expansion that encompasses the existing bar, on Friday 18th October.
The Gallery is the latest phase in a seven-figure extension of The Chester Hotel that includes absorbing the neighbouring property as part of the existing hotel.
The new venue is launching with three areas including the existing bar, a traditional cocktail bar and a covered garden area.
In addition to expanding in size, the bar will also be building on its menu with a host of new, bespoke cocktails and old favourites.
Hotel owner Graham Wood said of the expansion: “It is very pleasing to see another phase of this redevelopment completed.
“We are committed to retaining the character of the neighbouring building, and I am pleased to say that the whole project has been completed with minimal intervention and in a way which is entirely sympathetic to the original features and design.”
The hotel, home to one of the country’s largest collections of paintings by artist John Byrne, takes its name from Byrne’s 11 paintings featured within the redesigned interior resembling an art gallery.
The expansion has created ten new jobs and The Chester Hotel is set to grow even further with the opening of 21 new bedrooms and suites in the coming weeks.
