V&A fever is spreading throughout Dundee as businesses gear up to welcome thousands of extra visitors.
Bars across the city are promising to shake things up when the £80.1 million attraction opens its doors in mid-September, with a variety of cocktails themed around the museum.
The Apex, Malmaison and Bird & Bear are just some of the nightspots which have been working on specialist drinks.
Hotels say they are close to capacity, while ScotRail and Stagecoach have vowed to put on extra trains and buses.
The museum will officially open on Saturday September 15 with the free two-day 3D Festival to mark the occasion – headlined by Scots rockers Primal Scream.
Apex barman David Montgomery has created two cocktails in celebration called The Victoria and The Albert.
Ronnie MacKay, general manager at the Apex Hotel, said excitement was building by the day.
He said: “We are in a prime spot right on the quay, so our guests will be right in the heart of all the action when the V&A opens its doors. ”
Meanwhile, transport firms are also making plans for the opening weekend.
A ScotRail spokesman said: “It’s going to be a hugely exciting weekend for Dundee, and we’re delighted to be adding extra carriages to get everyone to and from the City of Discovery.”
A Stagecoach spokeswoman said: “We intend to duplicate journeys around the opening to ensure we can cater for the additional customers expected to visit the V&A.
“We are also working on publishing a ‘guide to getting to the V&A’, highlighting all our available bus services.”
