The Bull and Gate, the famous London music venue and pub, has been placed on the market, with offers in the region of £2.7m sought. The Kentish Town-based pub, which showcased early performances by Coldplay, Blur, and Nirvana, amongst others, is spread over 4,197sq ft which includes a live music room and eight-bedrooms. The iconic seventeenth century public house on Kentish Town Road has been owned by the same family, The Lynskey family, for 32 years and is one of London’s most loved and best known music venues for up and coming acts. It was the site of the extremely popular and influential six-nightly “Timebox” club run by Jon 'Fat' Beast from 1987 to 1992, and has run Club Fandango since 2001. Property advisor Davis Coffer Lyons (DCL) is marketing the freehold of the site as a trading or development opportunity. Chris Bickle at DCL said: “This landmark pub venue is quite possibly the most renowned place in the capital to see unsigned acts and has played a major and historical role in London’s drinking and live music scene for decades. “It is no secret that some of the UK’s treasured venues are struggling in the economic downturn, but we very much hope to find a buyer who can continue the tradition of live music at this location. At the same time, the sheer size of the building will obviously appeal to investors and developers.”
