Cocktail bar and lounge on Croydon High Street looking for a new owner


Popular cocktail bar and lounge, South Beats, situated in the heart of Croydon on the bustling High Street, has been brought to the market through specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.

The site, which was previously known as Half & Half, was purchased by the current owners through Christie & Co in 2015 and underwent a full refit and rebrand in late 2015 to become South Beats, a modern bar and live music venue serving an array of specialist cocktails, craft beers and personalised packages.

Set across two floors, the ground floor provides a relaxed lounge area with the main bar while the lower ground floor is arranged to accommodate a dance area and DJ booth, regularly hosting a resident DJ at weekends and private venue hires. Ideally located on Croydon High Street, the venue is ideally located to capture the high levels of passing trade and cater to the demand for quality nightlife destinations in the area.

The well established business has built up a good reputation, providing the perfect base for a new owner to take over, with further opportunities to grow revenue and profits through extending trading hours or introducing a food offering. With a currently unutilised catering kitchen on site, a new operator would be well equipped to capitalise on the day time food and beverage trade too.

Current owner, Darwin Singporewala is now looking to sell the leasehold of the business in order to focus on his growing family and upsize his home.
