SOLD - The Brothers Public Bar - 1P5456 559
Two brothers from Ireland liked a simple life. A decent pint served with good music in a friendly local. They buy a bar, put Guinness on tap and call the place The Brothers Public House. You'll find it on Johnston Street just down from the Nicholson Street junction in Fitzroy. The venue is a little piece of Ireland in Melbourne. A stylish place with fine Irish whiskeys, a very relaxed atmosphere with live music most nights and a loyal local crowd of regulars.
There are a couple of tables on the footpath outside the venue. Pass through the front door straight into the main bar area. Bar stools along the bar, benches along the walls and prime seating spots by the bifold windows when not being taken for music. The bar itself is quite long and on the right hand side of the room. Behind the bar is a small commercial kitchen. A hallway leads out to a cosy enclosed courtyard. From there stairs lead up to a self contained function room with its own bar and toilet. What goes on upstairs stays upstairs!
The bar has a long lease of 3+5+5. Rent is $1600 a week including GST. There is a late night on premises liquor licence until 3.00am with a capacity of 83. All fixtures and fittings are included in the sale and there are no equipment or supplier contracts in place.
The bar suits an owner operator who wants to work in a friendly environment. You don't have to be Irish, the clientele is very varied. The vendors took on the venue as a hobby and have other work commitments. They used the bar as a place to socialise and play music and chose to open on only 5 evenings each week. As such their aim was to generate a passive income while leaving plenty of time for their other responsibilities. There is a huge scope to generate much greater income or you can leave it as it is. All the infrastructure is there with low overheads and a great licence and location. There are books and the vendors are looking for offers in the region of $95,000 for this exclusively listed venue.
