The Malcolm Uphill, the new JD Wetherspoon pub in Caerphilly town, will open its doors on Tuesday, October 11.
The company said it has spent £1.4 million re-developing the CoCo building in Cardiff Road.
The building was originally erected in 1966, as Lawrence House, and last used as the CoCo Discount Store.
The new pub will be managed by John and Danielle Stephens, who were previously at The Ernest Willows in Cardiff.
The pub is named after local hero Malcolm Uphill, who was born in Trecenydd and moved to Heol Trecastell, Caerphilly. He was a fitter, turner and erector at the Caerphilly Loco Sheds, but best known as a Grand Prix motorcycle road racer.
His best racing season came in 1968 when he finished ninth in the 250cc World Championships. He also won the Isle of Man TT, 750 Production class, in 1969 and 1970.
According to JD Wetherspoon, the pub will specialise in real ales, serving a wide range of beers, including those from local and regional brewers.
It will be open from 8am until 12 midnight seven days a week. Food will be served throughout the day, until 10pm every day.
Children, accompanied by an adult, will be welcome in the pub until 9pm throughout the week, with last orders for food at 8pm. As a condition on the licence, both the adult and child must order a meal.
The pub will be wheelchair accessible and have a specially-adapted toilet for people with disabilities.
The new-look pub will feature one bar and a beer garden to the rear of the premises, where smoking will be permitted.
Photos, local history artwork and information boards relating to the history and characters of the area, will also be displayed in the pub, as well as artwork of local historical places, including Caerphilly Castle.
Manager John Stephens said: “Myself, Danielle and our team are looking forward to welcoming customers into the pub and we are confident that it will be a good addition to Caerphilly’s social scene.”
