THE BRIDGETON BAR, 159 JAMES STREET, GLASGOW, G40 1BS
Vacant Former Licensed Premises – 92.4 sq.m (995 sq.ft)
The property is at Bridgeton Cross which lies approximately 1.5 miles east of Glasgow city centre. It is the retail centre for the Bridgeton area which has been significantly upgraded in recent years. The area comprises largely tenement buildings with retailers on the ground floor. Occupiers are a mix of local and national companies including a post office and library. The area is well served by public transport.
The property which is still fitted out as licensed premises, occupies the ground floor of a traditional four storey sandstone tenement building with pitched and tiled roof. A long single storey flat roofed extension to the rear contains toilet and storage accommodation.
To the front, is the bar area, broadly rectangular, with bar to one side and built in upholstered bench seating to the other. The bar area generally has wood panelled walls, carpeted floor and plaster ceiling. There are storage areas on either side of the front door with one, accessed from behind the bar, previously used as an office. The rear extension has various storage areas, ladies, gents and disabled toilets and cellar area to the rear all accessed from a long corridor with emergency exit off. Finishes to these areas are generally tiled floors, plastered/ tiled walls and plastered ceilings.
The property needs upgrading, however the corner position overlooking an area of amenity ground offers, subject to all necessary consents, scope for a wide range of alternative uses, such as a café, takeaway or similar. The external wall may have scope for an income producing advertising hoarding.
