London music venue and restaurant the Troubadour on sale

Well-known London music venue and restaurant the Troubadour is on sale after being marketed by specialist property adviser Christie + Co, off a guide price of £225,000.

The vendors are Simon and Susie Thornhill, who have owned the site since 1998.

The venue is made up of three leasehold properties including the 114-cover restaurant on the ground floor. In the basement is a 132-capacity club and 20-seat wine bar. There are also owners' living quarters over three floors; a gallery with two self- contained letting flats for four; an office, garden, and extra storage.

Established in 1954 by Michael and Sheila van Bloemen, the Troubadour bills itself as one of the last remaining '50s-era coffee houses in London. Across the last six decades it has hosted music artists such as Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Ronnie Wood, Jimi Hendrix, Mick Taylor, Adele, Ed Sheeran, and Amos Lee. It also aims to support young, emerging musicians.

Simon Chaplin, director, pubs and restaurants at Christie + Co, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a slice of history and the Troubadour has a loyal clientele made up of both locals and those travelling from further afield to visit the venue. There is scope for the new purchasers to build on its strong following."
