Next door to Station 59 is the Fire Station on Church Street in Richmond. So a few years ago the local fire crews were spending all their time in the pub next to the station so they decided to buy the venue. Hence the name and all the fire station memorabilia in the venue.
The place is one of the largest venues in the area with four different revenue streams. There are seven boarding rooms upstairs. Downstairs with its own entrance there is a self contained cafe with commercial kitchen which could be sublet. The main bar has a stage for the local bands that play there, a large bar area and to the rear a courtyard with its own pop up bar. Also downstairs there is a private function area with the ceiling mounted directional sound system , its own bar and another stage. So during the week there are comedy nights, open mic nights, bands and functions besides the regulars.
There is a new lease available of a 3+3 with rent for such a large venue being less than $2k a week and that includes GST. Station 59 has a general licence, inside till 1am and off sales to 11pm with a capacity of 190 and no security restrictions. All fixtures and fittings are included in the sale except for a few listed items of memorabilia.
There are books but they are not healthy, typical hospitality really so it really is walk in walk out. There is a great opportunity here for some to take over the venue and do great things. Possibly concentrate more on making it more a live music venue and providing entertainment in various forms , not just a beer. With the four different areas to work on you are only limited by your creativity. The vendor is looking for offers in the region of $95,000 PRICE REDUCTION for this exclusively listed venue.
This venue is now SOLD.
