Property Description

Key features


Full description

A stylish and profitable city centre bar with a large trade garden and 1 bedroom owners accommodation.
Occupying a substantial 3 storey property adjacent to the catherdral, the bar offers scope to cater for functions and parties in additional to regular trade.

Location - Vertigo is situated within 50 yards of the historic Cathedral, in what is considered to be the primary area for nightlife in the City of Truro.

As the main administrative and commercial centre in Cornwall, Truro has seen significant commercial and retail investment in recent years making it a thriving and vibrant City. The continuing residential development in and around the City, together with plans for a new stadium and expansive development just to the west, mean the area will see increased growth, certainly for the foreseeable future.

The Property - The business occupies a substantial three storey Grade II Listed building: a facade that belies its contemporary interior. The original property has been extended to the rear to provide a large conservatory which gives access to an outdoor seating area. The attractive paved and decked area to the rear backs onto the river with an outdoor kitchen, large barbeque and mobile wooden bar.

The main bar and seating areas are on the ground floor with a further bar and lounge, ideal for functions, parties or overspill, on the first floor. The one bedroom accommodation is located on the second floor.

The Business - Vertigo has been in our clients tenure since 2009 and currently trades from 12pm to midnight Monday to Wednesday and from 12pm to 1am for the rest of the week. Whilst our client chooses to open at lunchtimes, the Licence allows for 9.30am opening, if required.

Currently operated by our client with the assistance of two managers, two supervisors, a chef and between 8 and 10 part-time staff, it is considered that wage costs could be reduced were the business to be run by a husband and wife team.

The business has seen increasing levels of turnover and profitability over the past 3 years with the Accounts for the year ending February 2015 showing a net turnover of £452,983 and an adjusted net profit of £78,927.
