Popular live music bar & restaurant in Glasgow city centre on market

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to sell Avant Garde, a popular live music bar & restaurant in Glasgow city centre on a leasehold basis.


The business is located in the thriving Merchant City area in the centre of Glasgow, surrounded by offices, flats, retail shops, restaurants, and bars. The area is known for holding many annual festivals and is also home to popular destinations such as the Gallery of Modern Art and the Scottish Youth Theatre.

Set up for live music, the main space is open and spacious, with a well-stocked bar centrally located on the ground floor. There are currently 48 covers for the main restaurant that is serviced by the fully functioning commercial kitchen, as well as seating throughout the bar area for drinks and small bites.

A large basement area doubles the size of the venue and could easily be developed to accommodate or extend the capacity of the property. To the side of the venue is a further function area that can be used for small conferences.

Alistair Watt, Business Agent at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments, “Avant Garde is a very popular live music venue within the Merchant City area of Glasgow and the sale provides an excellent opportunity for an owner-operator to take over this established pub & restaurant. Development of the basement area will only further enhance this business whilst the adjacent function room provides added options for any incoming operator.”

Avant Garde is on the market at £150,000 for the leasehold going concern.
