The Grade II-listed Washington hotel in Llandudno, Wales, is set for a £1.5m refurbishment after being acquired by the Welsh restaurant chain Dylan's.
Dylan's, which has two restaurants in North Wales in Menai Bridge and Criccieth, plans to open a third restaurant at the venue. The venue was formerly a nightclub until it closed down in 2012.
The refurbishment is planned to start before the end of the year, with the site expected to create up to 40 jobs when it opens late spring 2017.
Dylan's director David Evans told the Daily Post: "We are confident that we can secure the funding required to meet our opening date target. As with our Menai Bridge and Criccieth restaurants, this will combine menus featuring local seafood and seasonal produce, a warm and friendly service and a unique, waterside location."
