The Crazy Bear Group, the bar, restaurant and hotel operator, is to sell a West End site.

The former private members club and Thai restaurant on the corner of Mercer Street and Shelton Street closed its doors earlier this year and is now being marketed by Christie + Co.

The property is set over the basement, ground and first floor and there are two flats on the upper floors that could also be available if required.

The ground floor bar area and the basement restaurant with sushi bar are described as both lavishly decorated with leather and Swarovski crystal studded banquet seating, suede ceilings, leather floors and a pewter topped bar.  The main ground floor bar seats 30 with room for more standing.  The basement area is split into a bar area seating 30 and a restaurant that seats 40 plus.

Simon Chaplin, director and head of restaurants at Christie + Co, said: “The venue is very opulent and is perfectly situated between the hubs of Covent Garden and Shaftesbury Avenue to attract a variety of clientele.”

Christie + Co is seeking £750,000 for the leasehold and all enquiries should be directed to Simon Chaplin on 020 7227 0761.
