Mr Black said: "We're completely rebranding it with a new name, completely refurbishing it and having a new exterior."
The pub was built on the site of the former Botanic Gardens railway station wait- ing room.
Mr Black and Mr Westerdale took over the pub last month and also own Garbutts, further down the avenue.
The new owners are renaming it Pearsons, after nearby Pearson Park.
Mr Black said Garbutts has become well-known in Princes Avenue and hopes Pearsons will be the same.
He said: "We're giving it its own identity.
"It's going to have a different feel and decor to Garbutts and a different menu and food."
