Is the capital your cup of tea?

Operators looking to gain a foothold in Edinburgh might be interested in the Cup Tea Lounge and Gin 71 venue in the new town.

Located on South Charlotte Street, the premises currently operates as a tea lounge by day, serving light lunches and afternoon tea, before transforming in to gin bar Gin71 at night.

Stuart Drysdale, associate director at Christie & Co, said the property is for sale to allow the current owners to concentrate on their other venues in Glasgow.

“Cup tea rooms occupies a fully refurbished mid-terraced townhouse in an excellent location which trades as a very successful business during both the day and night time, catering for a large range of customers,” he said. “There is also potential for development as the first floor which currently contains an office and store room could be transformed into additional public space, such as a private dining room.”

Christie & Co is seeking £175,000 for the leasehold interest with an annual rent of £110,000.
