The Dolphin Bar is a good quality traditional public house, which has been operating for many years. The Dolphin has become an institution within the Partick area and, although the main trading area is relatively small, the business is extremely popular and has an excellent following. The property provides a single bar operation, which is easily managed and, with limited operating costs, should provide a good level of profitability for a new tenant.
Historically, the business was leased out and, therefore, we are not in receipt of any full accounting information. However, we understand that the business historically traded in the region of £7,000 to £8,000 gross per week.
This is an excellent opportunity for an owner/operator to acquire and run a highly regarded traditional bar within a popular trading location.
