The site of members club Crazy Bear in London’s Covent Garden has been put on the market after the opulent venue closed down.
The three-storey corner premises in Mercer Street in the Seven Dials area is being sold on behalf of the Crazy Bear Group through specialist property adviser Christie + Co. They are seeking £750,000 for the leasehold.
It is set over a basement, ground and first floors, including a private bar and Thai restaurant. There are also two flats on the upper floors that could also be available if required.
Although currently closed, the site is to be left fully equipped and ready to trade by new owners. Having been partially refitted, the ground floor bar area and the basement restaurant with sushi bar are both lavishly decorated with leather and Swarovski crystal studded banquet seating, suede ceilings, leather floors and a pewter topped bar.
The main ground-floor bar seats 30 with room for more standing. The basement area is split into a bar area seating 30 and a restaurant that seats over 40.
Simon Chaplin, director and head of restaurants at Christie + Co, said: “The venue is very opulent and is perfectly situated between the hubs of Covent Garden and Shaftesbury Avenue to attract a variety of clientele.”
Crazy Bear in Seven Dials opened over five years ago, building on the success of the award-winning Crazy Bear members club and restaurant in Whitfield Street, Fitzrovia, which is still trading. The group also has clubs with hotel rooms in Stadhampton, Oxfordshire, and Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.
