This venue can be found at the southern end of Smith Street, just up from Gertrude Street. Concentrating more on drinks than food, this perfectly presented Smith Street venue boasts a large copper bar, exposed-brick walls, custom light fittings, timber floors and two graffiti murals on the walls.
Out on Smith Street there is footpath trading for twelve with in-built outdoor heating and a retractable awning. Heading inside there is a long bar down the left side of the venue, with eight taps. Then throughout there is assorted seating including comfy sofas and various arrangements for couples and small groups. There’s also a raised stage area which acts as a private booth. Behind all of this there is a large fully fitted commercial kitchen and basement cool-room. As with all these small venues it is a converted house so upstairs is the original one bedroom flat that has now been converted into office and storage space. It could go back to being accommodation or in turn developed in to a private function space.
The venue has a restaurant and cafe licence until 1am with a capacity of 87. Rent comes in at just under $2100 a week including GST. There are seven years left on the lease made up of 2+5 with options to negotiate further terms. The venue has an extensive fixture and fittings list and everything is in excellent condition.
The venue is best suited for an owner operator that wants to take over a fully equipped venue with all sorts of potential. The new owner is only limited by their creativity, possibly expanding upstairs. The vendor has multiple venues and other business interests and so is looking to divest this one. The vendor is looking for offers in region of $145,000.
This venue has now been SOLD.
