Looking to run a pub?
Wildcat, Edinburgh is a great Scottish, city centre pub which sits just off a main commuting road, within a residential area. It is in an area which offers a selection of pubs, restaurants and entertainment which draws students, nearby residents, visiting tourists and city centre commuters. It’s a small and cosy pub which offers opportunity to create a quality drinking venue with fine ales, gins, quirky cocktails, wines and a friendly, local welcoming venue perhaps offering quality entertainment with late night opening.
The site has recently been upgraded with updated external facias and signage. Inside the walls, floors and toilets were upgraded. Overall, the fabric and structure of the building will be improved to provide a quality and welcoming pub.
The site is split into two trading areas with a central partition. The front bar has the service area and then the rear area is more for lounging with tables, chairs and sofas. There is also a small food service area (suited to a simple and innovative food offer). Parking is within easy reach on nearby side streets.
There is no domestic accommodation with this pub opportunity.
