Known as the “Cheers of Thornbury” where everyone knows your name. Barton Fink is the intimate Melbourne bar that pays tribute to an iconic ’90s film. The business was meticulously renovated when the current vendors took over in 2014 and no expense has been spared on the nostalgic fit out. The venues style embraces exposed brick walls and 1940s inspired furnishings including velvet sofas, quirky gold-upholstered swivel chairs, replica film reel lights, a larger-than-life wall mural of Barton Fink’s face and an autographed photo of actor John Turturro, who portrayed Fink in the film, hanging over the bar.

Barton Fink Bar is located in the heart of Thornbury on busy High Street and only 7km from the CBD. This double frontage (8.5m) venue has all the benefits of its high-profile location, without the expensive rental of the city, especially for 150sqm of prime commercial 1 zoned space. Barton Fink is currently open 6 nights a week from 4pm weekdays and from 3pm on weekends. The bar offers trivia on Tuesdays and live music & DJ’s every Friday and Saturday night, with AFL and other sporting events streamed live on its projector screen in the beer garden to keep all its customers happy.

This venue is a trusty High Street favourite since opening in 2014 and has built up a great reputation in the area. The venue offers a neat bar food menu along with an impressive range of local and imported beers, wines and is well known for its cocktails, which are always popular with the trendy inner North locals. The business is currently night focused, however, there is huge demand in the area to open for breakfasts &/or lunches as well, as it is so centrally located on busy High Street which attracts a huge amount of foot traffic both day & night.

This is one truly unique opportunity which is not to be missed, as 3am liquor licenses are priceless, with the Darebin City Council not issuing any equivalent licences at the moment. This is the perfect opportunity for any experienced hospitality operator looking for a new or 2nd venue to add to their portfolio. Call Karli to inspect 0409 965 540.
