City Bar Derby

Traditional City Centre Bar

The City Bar is in the heart of Derby City Centre, situated along the main transport route of Derby. It is close to the markets, the Intu shopping centre and the Assembly rooms making it a convenient spot for commuters, shoppers and people coming into the city for a night out. It is also close to the Riverside where there are hotels and a casino and fairly close to the main bus station which links nearby cities to the centre, so it has the potential to attract extra footfall from visitors to the area.
Full of potential, the City Bar was previously run as a very sport-led pub with a mainly wet led focus. However, with the right operator, who has passion and creativity, there is an excellent opportunity to introduce a simple food offer, perfect to capture the extra footfall from shoppers, visitors to the area and not forgetting football goers.

It has the benefit of a late licence and therefore, can trade until the early hours. The pub has a great area for sports such as pool and darts, which can be converted to a dance floor of a weekend.

The weekends are where this business sees the majority of its custom, from people using the shopping centre, coming to watch the local football team or coming for a weekend or night away. This leaves a lot of untapped, midweek opportunities, again whether this be with offers or sport led.

Experienced City Centre Operator Wanted!

We are looking for an experienced operator with vision and passion to un-tap the potential at this perfectly located city centre pub. Catering skills would be an advantage to assist with the introduction of a simple food offer to suit both the day time and evening trade. If you think you have what it takes to maximise this pubs potential we want to hear from you today!

Trading Area & Facilities

Internally the City Bar is a one room layout with a separate zoned games area, hosting a pool table and darts board this area can double up as a dance floor at weekends. It is serviced by a long central bar and is traditionally decorated throughout with a mixture of booth and loose seating. There is also an opportunity for a commercial kitchen to be created in the residential area of the business, using the dumbwaiter by way of transporting the food from this level to the ground floor. Any spend with the kitchen would need to be fully supported by business plan and business case.

Externally the Pub has good kerb appeal and is accessed by the main street.

The accommodation is extensive with a number of rooms, bathroom and kitchen. In line with our Ready to Trade Promise, we will ensure the private accommodation is in good condition, so that you can focus on your business.
