Just off the main drag in the increasingly busy Healesville, Herd wouldn't be out of place in the city. The building is one of the most striking in town, a collection of warm, wood slats standing to attention like a bundle of matchsticks, and inside it's a contrasting mix of genres and textures with a masculine bronze, gold and black colour scheme, and deco flourishes inspired by The Great Gatsby. Keep exploring and you'll find a series of striking wall finishes by local artists from a tranquil rainforest scene, to blocks of recycled wood, to bright green astroturf. And as you push further into the venue you descend progressively into the underground.
Not only is there a small courtyard with bleacher seating and tables but bench seating along the length of the outside of the venue. Heading inside you go in past the bar to the first level of varied seating and then step up on to the next level towards the rear of the venue with its sofas and more tables. Recessed in one wall behind glass and accessed behind the wall is a very visual wine cellar. Behind the bar is a well equipped commercial kitchen supported by a two dry stores and a cool room. There is a very large free car park to the rear of the venue with all patrons coming from it having to walk past the venue to gain access to the main street. Many never get past Herd!
There will be a brand new lease of fifteen years made up of 5+5+5 with the intial rent only being $1000 a week including GST. Herd has a General Licence until 1am on premises and 11pm off premises with a capacity of 100. There is an extensive fixtures and fittings list and Herd is in excellent condition.
