THE "ELEPHANT and Hind" in Dover's Market Square has re-opened after a revamp, and is now called Bar Elle.
The refurbishment now means the pub has two plasma screens, a light and sound system and a new menu.
An application has been made for a late licence. Lessee Roy Gilham said: "lt's a huge step changing the pub into a trendy bar but the development was long overdue and the team and I are excited about the challenges.
"The plasma screens mean this is going to be the place to watch the World Cup - and we have plenty planned for it.
"Our motto for Bar Elle is eat, drink, dance, spectate and relax.
"We want our customers to know that they are welcome, whether they just want a coffee and a bite to eat or whether they are doing the circuit."
