REF 6398 – Freehold Social Club With Function Room

Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this freehold social club with function room located in the much sought-after area of Old Swan, Liverpool.

INTRODUCTION

The Highfield Social Club Ltd was established in 1958 and our client took ownership in 2013. The club has a main bar with a huge base of regular, local customers and a large function room used for events such as birthdays, funerals, Christenings and so on. After sixty years of trade, the club has a range of customers from the local area that are regulars, the function room is well used by the local community and the business has established an excellent reputation, known for good value, superb entertainment and a family friendly atmosphere.

LOCATION

Positioned on Lexham Road at the junction of Queens Drive and East Prescot Road. This excellent trading position is close to a large residential area along with other local businesses, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, shops and large multiples including Wetherspoons and Sainsbury’s close by. The area is well linked by the M62 with excellent public transport links and free parking is available to the front of the building.

REASON FOR SALE

The business would be ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but is currently operated by staff only due to our client’s retirement. Therefore, the business is offered for sale and presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.

BUILDING LAYOUT AND DESIGN

The Highfield Social Club Ltd operates from an impressive, single storey detached property.The business has large signage displayed with advertising in place for sports coverage. Inside, the club is split into two main areas. Firstly, the main bar area which offers seating for eighty. This is fitted with free standing tables and chairs and has a dedicated darts playing area with separate seating in place. The main bar also offers sports coverage from both Sky Sports and BT Sports and there are four wall mounted plasma TV screens in place. Behind the bar are a range of chilled cabinets, 11 beer pumps, spirit optics and an EPOS till. This is supported by a large refrigerated beer cellar, a glass wash-up area with an automatic glass washing machine and a managers office. There are also toilets with disabled access.
The second area is the function room – this offers seating for 125 and is very well presented with free standing tables and chairs along with wall mounted, booth style seating. There is a second bar within the function room allowing for full private hire – this is fitted with refrigerated cabinets, nine beer pumps, spirit optics and again, an EPOS till. Our client has also equipped the room with a large entertainment stage which is fitted with a sound-to-light system. Supporting the bar and function room is a well equipped kitchen – at present only offering snacks – this could be utilised more to introduce “in house” catering for functions as well as bar foods and a new menu. The Highfield Social Club Ltd is fitted with gas central heating throughout along with internal and external CCTV and a comprehensive alarm system.

STAFF

The business is currently operating with eight members of staff in employment. Our client is not involved in the day to day running of the business and offers support overseeing the management for around 6 hours per week. An owner operator would be beneficial to save on staffing costs; however, all staff are reliable and experienced in this sector.

FINANCIAL DETAILS

The Highfield Social Club Ltd has traded solidly during the last sixty years and has flourished in recent years with the addition of entertainment and sports coverage. We are advised that the business currently has annual turnover of £270,000 with around 66% of takings generated by the function room hire. Full financial details are available upon viewing.

BUSINESS RATES

The rateable value is £5,000. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.

SUMMARY

This freehold business is long established and well known in this area of Liverpool. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of catering both in the bar and for the function room to give customers more of a “one stop shop” for their events and social time. A hands on owner operator could also bring further personal service consistency to the business. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. It may also be of great interest to a pub/restaurant chain looking for expansion into this area. Early viewings are strongly advised and are welcomed by appointment only. Fixtures:
