The Mansion House Entertainment and licensed complex is situated within the Merchant City, Glasgow’s most historic and cultural district. The premises lie only minutes’ walk from George Square, Strathclyde University and the main retailing facilities serving the city along Argyle Street and Buchanan Street. This is an excellent trading location for a licensed venue situated within the heart of the city centre.
Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city with a population of around 600,000 persons and is the UK’s largest retail centre after London. Glasgow is one of Europe’s top 20 financial centres, with many company headquarters located within the core city centre.
Glasgow’s popularity for retail, leisure and tourism continues to expand, assisted greatly with the highly successful 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Glasgow Hydro Conference / Entertainment venue, which is now recognised as one of the top 5 events venues in the world. The student market also provides valuable additional income to licensed venues within the city. Glasgow has a student population of around 45,000, contributing around £500 million per year to the Glasgow economy.
Mansion House is situated within a first class trading location, able to draw trade from a variety of sectors including shoppers, tourists, office workers and students.
The premises provide a multi-faceted licensed investment. There is a sports bar arranged over the ground floor, music venue over the basement, and ten pin bowling concept and bar over the first floor. The three licensed concepts are subject to separate lease agreements.
The premises themselves are arranged over the ground floor, first floor and basement of a modern, multi storey, steel frame building, with attractive glass frontage. Adjacent occupiers, which form part of the building, include an NCP car park and the highly successful Grosvenor Casino.

This is a rarely available licensed investment opportunity. New long term leases have been agreed and are in place, providing valuable rental income of £217,500 per annum to a prospective purchaser. There are three different concepts in place, providing a spread of businesses, which complement each other, with also business longevity. Although the companies under the lease agreements are new start companies, the rental deposits provide excellent security. In addition, each of the tenants has invested significantly in their premises, resulting in excellent re-letting possibilities should vacant possession in any of the leases be gained.
Offers Over £2,050,000 are invited for the investment, representing a net initial yield of 10% after deduction of purchaser’s costs at 5.75%.
The full Energy Performance Certificate will be available on request.
