Property description

Arkade Property is delighted to offer these iconic basement restaurant premises for let or for sale. The property was formerly occupied by Anderson's and, prior to that, the Buckle Maker, both well known, popular, high quality restaurants. Any buyer or tenant would therefore derive the benefit of occupying premises well known throughout Birmingham for providing food of the highest quality in a location that is second to none. The location is in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, described as a national treasure and unlike any other historic landscape in the area. The Jewellery Quarter attracts a vibrant community with its abundance of craft bars, bustling cafes and stylish restaurants and, with over 200 listed buildings nearby, you can still peer into the rich heritage of this iconic district of Birmingham, made famous by its array of artisan jewellers, goldsmiths and glassmakers whose products are the envy of the world. Being adjacent to St Paul's Square, the last Georgian Square in Birmingham one can call upon the custom of the 6,000 plus residents who already call the Jewellery Quarter their home and the participants in the largest concentration of Jewellery outlets and manufacturers in the world.

Birmingham is an excellent location for overseas and domestic investment being centrally located, young and vibrant. Birmingham is home to the strongest economy outside London and is the subject of large-scale infrastructure projects from the £550 million Grand Central development to the £1.5 billion Smithfield regeneration. Also, with work underway on HS2, one of Europe's most exciting rail projects, England's second city is becoming a most attractive place to live and invest in and the hospitality industry can only benefit from this regeneration.

These premises boast approximately 3,500 square feet of useable space with a large bar and restaurant area, a spacious kitchen, sundry storage rooms, a fridge room, a laundry room, toilets for the staff and for the customers, a cellar room and an office. The entrance is at street level on Mary Ann Street, just a few yards from St Paul's Square and the property benefits from a security alarm, a fire alarm system, emergency lighting and a heating/cooling system.
