Rare chance to acquire a café-bar in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town

Saint Giles’ Café Bar, in Edinburgh’s Old Town, is on the market for the first time in 32 years, through Christie & Co .

On St. Giles Street, the venue is just a short walk from Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile, and the city’s many historic attractions.

The minimalist décor within creates a ‘rustic yet lively charm’ said Christie & Co, around a servery counter, and a range of tables and benches which cater for up to 36 customers. There is also additional outdoor seating for up 14 customers.

Director Hotels Scotland at Christie & Co, Gary Witham, who is handling the sale, said: “This is a rare opportunity to buy a freehold just off the Royal Mile – arguably the strongest tourist location in Edinburgh.

“Guaranteed year round footfall and the ability to create a trend setting bar / cafe with limited competition so close to Edinburgh Castle will certainly appeal to both UK and overseas buyers.”

St Giles’ Café Bar is on the market at offers over £1,500,000 for the freehold going concern.
