Venue well known throughout areaBusiness Profile
This business has been established for approximately thirty years and has been managed by the current owners for the last eleven. The business has for many years been well known as ‘the place to go ‘especially at the weekend on the Isle of Sheppey.
Since taking over the business several years ago, the current owner has invested £500,000 to ensure that the venue is able to retain its reputation throughout the local community and beyond.
New flooring, ceilings, bar areas, toilets, furniture and pool tables as well as converting dead space into an additional bar have all contributed to the continued success of the business.
The club opens until 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays and it is these weekend evenings where the establishment comes into its own.
The club is used as a disco/dance venue to visit after meals or drinks at other premises across the island. The business has two large function rooms that are hired for Weddings and other celebrations.
The venue can cater for approximately 200 people in the function suites and another 200 in the main club/bar area. The business has a separate pool/snooker room that is used by the club’s own pool team. Other social and sports clubs have and still are using the venue as a base or meeting point.
The club is located alongside a large private car park with spaces for 80 vehicles. The business is not tied to any brewery and is able to negotiate its own deals for their drinks. This allows the bar and the club to be highly competitive in attracting growing numbers of customers to come and spend their money whist having a great night out.
The freehold property has under gone an extensive refurbishment and is constantly maintained to an excellent order.
There are considerable opportunities within the club and bar area to increase turnover.
All the fixtures and fittings that are required to continue to run the business are of course included in the asking price. These include bar equipment, refrigeration, sound system, furniture, pool tables etc.
The business is known for its friendly atmosphere. The owners and their staff are well known by the clientele and there is a real bond amongst the regulars who use the venue to catch up with each other as much as possible.
The business manages several thousand customers during a normal month and has the systems, infrastructure and people in place to ensure that customers are always satisfied. High quality service, excellent value for money and a welcoming atmosphere are paramount to the success on which the bar and club were built upon. The results of this are self evident in the businesses sustained levels of repeat customers.
The business benefits from its excellent reputation for offering very affordable venue hire. Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and wakes bring in revenue several times a week.
The business is also benefiting from the trend that means more and more of the local population now see the immediate area near to the club as the best location for nightlife throughout the area.
The current market for this business’s services is growing and the forecast in the near and long term is for significant growth. The business has little or no competition in the local area and they are well positioned to take advantage of the growth as it occurs.
The business does have a kitchen, but at present does not offer food for sale. With the growing trend for gastro pubs, adding food to the club’s list of services provides an obvious route for the business.
The club is closed on Mondays and a more proactive approach to bringing customers in during the early part of the week, for example by showing sports on big screens or poker evenings would be another opportunity for growth.
Special theme nights for example for singles would also add to existing levels of trade.
The business is being offered for sale on a going concern basis, all financial discussions will take place directly between the vendor and all interested parties under the auspices of Turner Butler.
