PICTURES: Sandbanks’ landmark Jazz Café up for sale – for £7.5 million

A LANDMARK café on Dorset’s Sandbanks beach is up for sale – for £7.5 million.

The lease of the Jazz Café bar and restaurant, which has been occupied by the current owners for the last 28 years, is on the market with agent Key Drummond.

The listing says the venue enjoys a “high level of footfall from the local residential community, as well as holiday makers and tourists alike”.

“Located directly on the beach, The Jazz Café is a very long established business which has been highly successful for many years through a long standing ownership and has an extremely profitable trading history offering catering for parties and events of all types from 20 to 150 guests including private dinners, weddings, birthday parties, barbecues and corporate events,” it said.

“The property has a 21 years remaining on the lease paying £69,000 pa with three yearly rent reviews.”

Accommodation is arranged over one level, the listing states, including several open dining areas, bi-fold doors to the terrace, wooden flooring and an open log fire, with serving counter, separate kitchen, office and male and female WCs.

“Externally, the property has a large terrace for more seating and an ice cream kiosk, all enjoying views over the beach and the sea beyond,” the listing added.

“Currently, there is a loyalty scheme running with over 900 members. The Jazz Café is also renowned for their Sunday Lunchtime Jazz Sessions.

“This business although fully operational, is not currently open in the evenings, including Friday or Saturday nights, although the licence permits it and therefore offers amazing potential to enhance the already fantastic turnover with opportunities for evening trading with live music.”
