A DISUSED building in the heart of Huddersfield is being brought to life in a £2.5m revamp.
The old furniture store and warehouse on the corner of King Street and Zetland Street is being refurbished.
It will open on August 11 as a bar called The Cotton Factory.
The development will be a flagship scheme for Rotherham-based Daisychain Inns.
The firm manages pubs across the country, but this is its first venture in the Huddersfield area.
The new bar will create 40 jobs.
Work is well under way on the converted Grade II listed building.
Wakefield-based Ocean Design are behind the renovation.
Spokesman Steve Curtis said: "The Cotton Factory will raise the standard of bars on offer in the area.
"It has been a year in the making and Ocean Design have created a fresh new look for bar interiors.
"The 10,000sq ft venue comprises four individually-designed bars and will also include an opulent members' lounge and a late-night bar which will host leading DJs.
"The ground floor includes a bar with a zinc counter top and chandeliers, set against a backdrop of the original listed brick wall.
"Original designer furniture is to be imported from Italy."
Builders have retained many original features from the building, which at one time was a furniture store and warehouse.
They are also creating an outside terrace.
Ocean is an award-winning design company, which was launched in 2001.
It won the City of Wakefield Design 2003 Awards and has offices in London and Wakefield.
The company specialises predominantly in creating and designing bars, clubs and restaurants in the UK and Europe.
