Walk up through Rathdowne Village in Carlton and you all come across the blue plaster and tiled exterior of Billy Boy Blue. Billy Boy Blue is a smart, Euro styled restaurant where locals are on first-name basis with staff. It has excellent reviews on all the food websites so check them out.
The team has made good use of the space with help from Zunica Design: black banquette seating takes up as little room as possible opposite a terrazzo-tiled bar, also set with stone-blue tiles that match the obligatory pendant lights. A modern setting of crisp black and white tones is warmed by a timber feature wall and a touch of blue, and should guests throw a glance towards a long bar, they would find shelves well stocked with popular wines and a handful of passionate staff members pouring craft beers.
The venue has footpath and veranda seating for 24 and then inside a general dining area that can accommodate another 40 patrons with a fully equipped commercial kitchen in support. At the rear of the venue there is space for storage or the seating area can be extended in to this section. The venue has a restaurant and cafe licence until 11pm. There are 8 years left on the lease made up of 2x3x3. Rent GST and out goings come in at only $1300 a week. All fixtures and fitting are included in the sale.
This venue was under offer but the buyers suddenly pulled out of the deal because of personal issues. The problem is that the venue did not reopen after the Christmas holidays and the owners are unable to reopen the venue. So the Billy Boy Blue has to be sold at the earliest possibility. All offers will be considered and the place will be a great bargain for whoever picks it up.
This venue is now SOLD.
