A craft beer brewery has opened its fourth pub in Dundee’s historic former City Arcade.
St Andrews Brewing Company has taken up two units with its Caird Hall bar behind the concert venue it is named after.
The spot – once a row of shops beside the city’s old bus terminal – has been redeveloped since the demolition of the old Dundee City Council HQ and building of the nearby V&A museum. The Caird Hall has hosted big names including the Beatles and Frank Sinatra.
The 7,500 sq ft venue has a restaurant with seating for 160 people, a wine cellar, conference room, Scotch corner and ‘indoor beer garden’. The bar has 20 beers on tap.
Hardies Property & Construction Consultants completed work on the bar restaurant as quantity surveyor with architects Andrew Black Design and contractors SteamPunk.
Gary Ovenstone, partner and quantity surveyor on the project for Hardies, said: “We are delighted to assist the completion of this attractive bar and restaurant on behalf of St Andrews Brewing Company, which marks another welcome addition to Dundee’s buoyant food and drink offering.”
The Caird Hall is St Andrews Brewing Company’s largest pub so far after opening in St Andrews and Potterrow and Broughton Street Lane in Edinburgh.
