Iconic Dundee pub could be transformed into craft brewery’s latest bar

An iconic Dundee city centre pub could be turned into a trendy craft ale pub.

Six Degrees North, the popular Stonehaven-founded beer company, intends to launch its latest pub next month.

The pub will have as many as 24 beer taps including the firm’s own range of drinks.

The craft beer group already has premises in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as the Marine hotel in Stonehaven.

A special crowdfunding appeal has been launched, offering supporters the chance to donate money to the project in exchange for exclusive merchandise and other perks, including “a return on investment of up to 75%”.

Robert Lindsay, Six Degrees North founder said: “Dundee is a city that’s been on our radar for a long time, we’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to open a bar here, and now we’ve found it.

“We’re crowdfunding the opening of Dynamo to give our ‘Crowd Founders’ the opportunity to embark on this exciting new journey together with us.

“Our Crowd Founders will have an influence on the direction of the bar going forward and we are very excited to offer the fine people of Dundee this unique opportunity.”
