UNDER OFFER - Highlander Bar - A Laneway Late Night Venue - 1P5200 472
Nestled in a secluded leafy lane way, between the Rialto and the Aquarium, Highlander Bar in Melbourne's CBD is one of Melbourne's most comfortable bars. It feels like the bar you'd settle at after a long day of hunting. Its cobblestone floor mimics the laneway it lives on, while a stags head hangs on the wall.
As you head inside past the outside seating it's cosy and warm on those Winter days but because of the thick stone walls lovely and cool in the Summer. The bar faces you as you head in and it is surrounded by numerous plush booths and seating, great for large and small groups. Tucked away up the stairs is a library with a difference. A bookshelf that moonlights as a bar with a DJ set up on an old wooden desk. There is no quiet time in this library. Behind the library there is a fully equipped commercial kitchen. On the top floor there is a large storage area, the cool room and possibly one of the coolest venue owners offices out there. The whole venue is in very good condition with an extensive fixtures and fittings list.
The Highlander Bar has a Late Night On Premises Licence until 3am with a capacity of 200. The venue is coming in to the final term of its lease with five years remaining. Further terms or a new lease can be negotiated with the landlords. Rent is $2600 a week including GST.
This is a great opportunity to take over a late night CBD venue that has been with the vendor for over 16 years. However, after a break from the fast paced lifestyle over lockdown the owner has decided to sell and relocate to Byron Bay. The venue took a bit of time to bounce back as the CBD reopened and is now doing well as the patrons and functions return. The Highlander bar suits an owner operator with some industry experience that can bring the place back to its former glory. The vendor therefore is only looking for offers in the region of $120,000 (Price Reduction) for this exclusively listed venue.
