At the base of the Dandenong Ranges is the lovely little town of Belgrave. You’ll probably know it as the home of Puffing Billy. What Belgrave is also all known for is Gin Lane. A place with a fantastic local reputation that you’ll only every find if you are very lucky or if someone is nice enough to take you there.
From the main road you enter through a small door, head up a corridor and then burst in to the bar. There you will find a great little cocktail bar, maybe a band playing in the corner or a DJ using turntables and those old things called records. Heading out through the rear of bar past the toilets you end up in the strangest of beer gardens. Only the fit need drink here as the wood paneled booths and seating areas all come off a steep set of steps. The whole venue is in excellent condition and has that urban hipster feel that you would normally expect in the CBD.
Gin Lane has a rare late night on premises till 7am which is available throughout the week but only really used at the weekend. The capacity is 50 which is just right for the venue. The place is the ultimate speakeasy. There are just under ten years on the lease made up of 5x5. And the best bit is that rent is less than $230 a week inc.GST. You will be hard pressed to find somewhere cheaper.
All fixtures and fittings are included in the sale. The vendor wishes to concentrate on his brewery business that is taking off. Gin Lane suits both those wishing to have fun and get stuck in to their first venue and also those that have a day job and want a bar as a hobby for the weekend. There are no books as such and so the vendor is looking for offers in the region of $140,000 for this exclusively listed venue that is an excellent opportunity.
This venue is now SOLD.
