      Boston Brokers are delighted to bring to market this well established stand-alone upscale restaurant bar that is ideally located on the busy North end of Drummond Street, a stone’s throw away from popular Lygon & Brunswick St’s.

The synonymous venue is largely considered to be the epitome for its type of customer embraced Euro-centric menu, award winning wine list and exceptional service. This attention to providing the best experience possible has led to rave reviews and excellent revenues from satisfied, repeat clientele.

      The Town Mouse is an award-winning, five–time hatted venue as adjudged by The Age Good Food guide including the 2018 guide just released. In addition, it was recognised as one of the top 10 venues for business lunches in Melbourne – two outstanding achievements.

      While there is no shortage of strong competition in this highly popular area, the well-established venue remains somewhat unparalleled in Melbourne for its concept! Town Mouse has become part of the Melbourne dining community and should remain so for the foreseeable future. New operators will likely wish to continue to capitalise on the venue’s success, location and established goodwill. It is ideal for a restaurateur looking to expand a chef who wants to make his/her mark, or an entrepreneur looking for the ideal upscale casual restaurant. Minor changes may potentially be implemented to bolster or enhance profitability. Truly one of a kind venue!
