Business Description:

Situated in Downtown Durham, NC this bar has been open for 5 years and is located on a busy street.  Since its opening it has become a meeting place for locals, business people and the college crowd.  This asset sale provides an incredible opportunity for a bar operator to acquire an excellent location complete with all the equipment.  Beer drinkers are treated to many of North Carolina craft beers and non-local beers on 32 tap lines.  This location offers an attractive outdoor patio and approximately 20 parking spaces.  This is a rare move-in ready opportunity for the right bar to share their talents and concept. 

Owner Qualifications:

The buyer should bar and/or restaurant experience.  They should also be familiar with basic accounting and marketing procedures.    


There are many bars and restaurants but most focus on different demographics.  Either late night eats or older clientele.  This bar appeals to undergraduate, graduate students and the service industry.

Potential Growth:

There is an opportunity to market to new residents, a slight concept change and mare advertising.  Adding food with a permanent food truck or installing a kitchen would increase revenues dramatically.
