The former student pub in the Gun Quarter in Birmingham city center is up for sale – 10 years after calling last orders
A popular former student pub and music venue in Birmingham is up for sale.
Having last traded as a pub in 2012, the former Black Horse venue, located on the corner of the busy A47 Jenner Road and Woodcock Street in the Gun Quarter, is now offered in the as part of a new hire, any agreement being tie-free.
The closure of the pub, located near Birmingham City University, more than a decade ago has allowed development of the Eastside Rooms conference centre, the 195-room Aloft hotel and regional headquarters office buildings.
The Eastside area has seen a lot of investment in recent years, including Millennium Point, numerous colleges of education, and apartments and hotels.
The former Black Horse pub is also adjacent to the future Curzon Street station, which will be the regional terminus for HS2.
For many years before it closed, the Black Horse was well known as a popular concert hall and student pub. While the Cheval Noir is wind and watertight, the property has been completely cleared down to its bare brickwork.
Given the level of investment required, real estate expert Fleurets is considering a minimum lease of 15 years and more, but “invites all sensible proposals”. Alternatively, they say a considerably longer lease subject to a premium and peppercorn rent can be considered.
Depending on the type of business taking the dark horse, 100% small business rate relief may apply to the property. Contact Fleurets on 0121 236 5252 or by email [email protected] for more information.
