Bridge Street bar for sale through Christie & Co for first time

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market The Bridge Bar, a popular traditional pub located in Aberdeen city centre.

The Bridge Bar comprises an open plan trading area with a traditional, timber bar, and features a cellar with refrigerated beer and spirit storage on the lower ground floor. Situated within Aberdeen’s established and popular leisure circuit, The Bridge Bar is ideally situated just a three minute walk from the city’s train station and 20 yards from Union Street. As one of the principal thoroughfares, the street benefits from high levels of footfall throughout the year and a loyal, local following.

Following 18 years of ownership, the current owner purchased the bar from George Clark, who has previously owned the pub for 17 years.  

Stuart Drysdale, Director at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “Operating as a free house with no brewery ties, the pub runs efficiently with low staff numbers. Ideally situated next to Union Street, the pub has been a popular meeting place for decades and represents a fine example of a traditional, city centre, wet led pub. This is a rarely available opportunity to acquire a well-established and profitable public house and we anticipate significant interest, particularly from experienced operators.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers in excess of £500,000 for the freehold interest of The Bridge Bar.
