Saloon with Type 48 & Real Property #5192 - $2,289,000 (west marin)

Iconic Saloon for sale with Type 48 full liquor license and real property. The saloon has been in operation since the 1800’s and is a West Marin institution that is steeped in history, mystique, and lore. The bar is located on the first-floor corner of a two story building on the bustling main street. There are windows throughout that let in daylight while still maintaining an air of mystery and other worldliness. There are several centerpieces in the saloon:

• A pellet stove is featured in the front of the saloon and patrons gather around it in the winter months for warmth and conviviality.
• The stately bar and intricate, wood bar-back is a deep reminder of the saloon’s wild-west pedigree.
• The back of the saloon is dedicated to the pool hall where patrons have a roomy area to enjoy the game—the saloon is open so that no area feels cut-off from the rest.
• The performance stage is positioned in the middle of the saloon with three sides open so patrons can enjoy the entertainment from every area of the bar.

There are two secured alcohol storage areas with quick access from the bar as well as a dry storage area with an ice machine. There is additional storage in the large basement that is accessed through the office. There are two bathrooms onsite. The premises has a large backyard that could be developed into outdoor seating.

The saloon has struggled to maintain profitably due to Covid and the passing of the bar’s legendary owner Judy Borello in 2022 and list price has been established accordingly. There is a ton of potential and opportunity for the next operator to incorporate the dynamic history with a new vision for success.

The price includes the purchase of the business ($189,000) and the real property ($2.1M). Seller will only consider offers that include the business and real property.
