La Piazza occupies an extremely sought-after trading position on Hammersmith Broadway, West London.
Hammersmith Broadway is a major transport and shopping centre in west London. The area is bustling with new residential development projects, offices, high street retailers and supermarkets, over 12 restaurants including exciting brands such as Bills, Wagamama, Pizza Express and Nando's and more quirky eateries such as Belushi’s, Azou, The Grove, The Gate and The Swan. Our client’s business stands out as the only independent Italian bistro in this area.
The contemporary unit overlooks the busy cross section of 3 roads, and faces the Hammersmith underground, Thomas Exchange global, across from the new pure gym, pure Hammersmith student living accommodation, Hammersmith library and 2 minutes’ walk from the famous Hammersmith Apollo music venue.
There is metered parking in the streets directly behind the bistro as well as a large carpark within 5 minutes’ walk. All major bus routes in and out of London are directly outside.
Hilton Smythe are excited to present to the market La Piazza, an established Italian bistro opened by our client in early 2017; now reluctantly selling due to family ill health.
Our client transformed an empty retail unit into a vibrant bistro with both inside and outside dining areas, full A3 use and alcohol licence permitted from 10am - 11pm, 7 days a week.
Our client’s passion to develop the bistro into a recognised brand has resulted in a total investment in the region of £150,000.
Our client’s menu offers a choice of salads, 11 authentic pizza options, pasta dishes, enunciated specials, desserts and cocktails. There is an extensive list of wines, spirits and liqueurs also for those wanting to stay a bit longer and watch the world go by. Our client informs us he attracts a healthy mix of office workers and professionals, tourists, students and local residents as well as fans visiting the Hammersmith Apollo.
Currently trade is split 30% at lunchtime and 70% in the evening, deliveries are also now available through JustEat and Uber Eats.
The business had been run to suit the limitations of our client and we feel there is endless scope to promote the bistro through more local advertising, student offers, an early dining menu, corporate bookings and links with local business groups. Our client informs us he is now taking group bookings from local offices including Christmas parties.
The opportunity would suit anyone looking to capitalise on the level of investment made by our client and the long lease available.
Agreed handover offered.
