What started as a food-stall staple at gatherings such as Meredith Music Festival and others is now a solid part of the furniture on Acland Street in St Kilda. And just in case you’re worried you might miss it, look for the bright orange “tacos” sign that points to Trippy Taco Southside at the beach end of Acland Street.
If patrons can’t snag an outside table then adjoining the outside area is an undercover veranda with easy access to the bar and main dining area inside. There is an open plan fully equipped commercial kitchen which when included with the bar is about half the size of the venue. So there is plenty of space and capacity to do large volumes of drinks and food, quickly. This is especially helpful on the big weekends of the St Kilda Festival, Gay Pride and when Catani Gardens is in full swing. The bar is on the left and throughout there is plenty of varied seating. Trippy Tacos is filled with natural light, bright piñatas, tikis and prints. It’s like hanging out in a groovy 1960s beach house. At the rear of the venue is a small office.
It has a long lease with seventeen years left, made up of 2+5+5+5 (1+5+5+5 from July) with rent coming in at $1950 a week including GST. Trippy Tacos has a restaurant and cafe licence until midnight with a capacity of 100. All fixtures and fittings come with the venue and it is free of any supplier contracts or lease agreements.
The vendor has realised that he cannot split himself in half and so has decided to concentrate on his original venue which is closer to home. Trippy Taco suits an owner operator that wants to take on a well equipped venue in a prime location which lends itself to any style of food offering and is also ideally suited as an Uber eats site. The vendor is a well motivated seller, is realistic about the sale of the venue and so has set the purchase price is set at $70,000. (Price Reduction).
