CLOSED, FULLY FITTED LICENSED RESTAURANT AND BAR in Harrogate for Sale.
Fully fitted, equipped and furnished licensed restaurant and bar in the centre of Harrogate. The Fashion House Bistro opened in August 2022 to high acclaim and was an instant hit with residents and visitors to this historic North Yorkshire town. During the height of summer it was attracting £15,000 to £16,000 per week in sales turnover. Unfortunately, the current difficulties in recruiting a chef, has led to operational difficulties and the closure of the business. This is a fantastic opportunity to takeover the lease and acquire outstanding quality fixtures, fittings, furniture and equipment at a fraction of their new value. The venue has proved hugely popular, with its large outside terrace and contemporary interior, and no doubt will be again, once under effective management. This Montpellier and Valley Gardens district of Harrogate had long lacked an exciting new venue with excellent outdoor trading area, and The Fashion House provided this. Located across from historic Valley Gardens, surrounded by dozens of hotels and in close proximity to the Royal Pump Room Museum, the Turkish Baths and just a short walk from the Convention Centre, the footfall and potential catchment is enormous. Add to that the reasonable rent and little, if any, additional capital expenditure, new owners can expect to open the doors and start taking money immediately.
The Premises: Outdoor, raised terrace area with seating for 40 customers. Lower ground floor entry to restaurant, spaciously arranged to accommodate 40 diners, plus a bar area with tall cocktail tables and chairs. Well equipped and stocked service bar with pass through to a superbly equipped catering kitchen, complete with a new, stainless steel extraction hood over commercial catering equipment. Behind the catering kitchen is a food prep room and pot-wash area. Short steps lead to an additional prep area with fully fitted walk-in cold room and dry goods storage. Managers office with CCTV equipment. Staff changing room. The restaurant has an elegantly appointed customer WC with baby change facility. Total coverage by CCTV, alarm and fire systems and ceiling mounted air-conditioners.
