The local neighborhood bar market in the South Bay and its surrounds tends to be more stable than the more seasonal beachside tourist oriented venues. This location was historically a stable earner that enjoyed a loyal local, cash-paying patronage.
This venue had been an earner since the 1960s. With the exception of working there themselves, a buyer may implement the former concept with any major venue modifications. Opportunities for increased profitability include the implementation of food service, promotions, which may include more frequent concert and event (boxing, UFC fights, sports, etc.) offerings, or special celebrations (larger Cinco de Mayo, St. Patrick's Day, etc. events). Historically, the bar's simplicity and "local" entertainment mix had provided it a recipe for continued success but room for growth still exists.
