A lot of thought and work has gone into the design and set-up of Sister of Society, an on-trend bar and nightspot found opposite the town hall on Chapel Street. The view through the tinted full length windows gives a hint of the modern interior and great-looking bar, enough to pique the curiosity and draw you inside. Low lighting creates a warm enticing ambience, tinged bright red by the SOS neon sign on the wall. A mixture of seating ensures the perfect spot for patrons to squeeze into a comfy booth, park on a bench at a coffee table, convene around a bar table, or perch on a bar stool for counter-style eating, drinking and conversing. Head right down the back past the long bar, open servery and commercial kitchen and you’ll find a very comfortable nook, ideal for a half dozen or so close friends. An outstanding addition is that the council has closed off the side road and included it in the venues footpath trading so the place can’t wait for Summer. It is up to you if you want to take that on or not.
The venue has a restaurant and cafe licence until 1am, with a capacity of 133. Rent including GST comes in at $3000 a week. There are 12 years left on the lease made up of 2x5x5. Also available in addition is an office/ cafe space to the side of the venue (4 King Street) with an annual rent of $25k. There is a detailed fixture and fittings list and a bonus of three covered car parking spaces that come with the venue.
Sister of Society is ideal for those that have hospitality experience and want to move in to their own venue as an owner operator. And it can also be run under management by a group. The vendors understand that there are many venues out on the market to choose from and so are only looking for walk in walk out offers in the region of $50,000.
