The Bar offers a truly unique opportunity to purchase an extremely successful and well-established business. The property is in immaculate condition in the heart of Melbourne CBD presenting buyers with a real lifestyle opportunity in this renowned precinct. The current proprietors have owned the business for the past 3 years and have reluctantly chosen to place the venue on the market as they have now secured a new location from which to trade.
The venue is presented to a very high standard and benefits from much repeat custom from locals, tourists from all over the globe, who regularly return to Nant time and time again.
The bar offers an expansive collection of whisky, including paraphernalia, which is on display and we are advised is available to drink by the dram.
Asking price includes:
Well-earned reputation as a destination location
Attractive, highly visible, well sited location
Character building & modern, stylish decor
Established customer base
Note – the trading name “NANT” does not come with this sale
This successful business offers customers an opportunity to spend time enjoying a discreet drink in a relaxed and stylish atmosphere, from a comprehensive menu of the highest quality whisky’s.
This business has at this time significant scope for growth and an increase in revenues. This can be achieved for example by taking advantage of the current volume of custom and potentially offering food. The Bar also limits the current trading hours so an extension to this would also benefit the sales and profit.
The business is further supported by exemplary relations with key suppliers who have helped to ensure that customer service and product quality is never compromised and that customers receive the highest possible quality of service, this has led to the existing high levels of return custom. This commitment to suppliers and customers has underpinned this business’s abilities in service quality and sustained business success.
The Vendors consider simply that happy customers come back and on that basis have maintained levels of product and service quality intended to best guarantee that happiness. The results of this commitment are evident in the degree of return custom and the reach of its reputation.
The business is well established with a strong, growing customer base managed by a comprehensive and sophisticated blend of management expertise and service commitment. The business retains a high level of repeat business, particularly among a number of customers returning on a regular basis and having done since opening. The Bar has earned an outstanding reputation for its quality service, reliability, sophisticated and stylish atmosphere, value for money and experienced staff. The quality of the location cannot be overstated since it is a key differentiator in the marketplace and a considerable asset, it is also responsible for the high visibility and the attending passing custom bringing unique first time visits on a regular basis.
This is an outstanding opportunity to build on the existing business services and customer base of this Bar and also to add new services. With a strong demand for its combination of location, environment and drinks, together with a capacity to increase turnover, a new owner contributing fresh ideas will have every advantage of building on an excellent platform.
