Halifax venue finds new operator through Christie & Co

The Bull Bar & Kitchen, located in Halifax’s town centre, has been sold through specialist business property advisor Christie & Co, to an experienced nightlife operator.

The former Bull Bar & Kitchen bar-restaurant premises is ideally located in the prominent position of Bull Green in the heart of Halifax town centre, which is perfect for the high-volume food and drink trade due to high footfall and traffic movements.

New owner Nick Westwell has taken the new lease opportunity to transform the former bar-restaurant into Origin Party Bar, a brand new party bar with video DJ’s and 16 TV screens.

Mr Westwell comments, “We’ve been working diligently behind the scenes to create a stunning venue that is amongst the most ambitious, inclusive and entertaining ever in the area. Creating a safe venue, with unrivalled atmosphere is the perfect ingredient and ideal for the highly ambitious Origin Party Bar.

“Our location, in what was recently the Bull Bar & Kitchen on Bull Green is the perfect choice to lead the way, bringing the party people of Halifax together for what we believe will prove to be, a unique venue. We can’t wait until the opening and are confident that everyone will be thrilled with it!

“Christie & Co have pulled out all the stops and expedited every avenue to ensure the deal was done quickly and efficiently to enable a refurb and opening in time for the Christmas trading period.”

Origin is set for its grand opening on Friday 20th, as Halifax town centre continues to see a resurgence in new night life entertainment.

Former owner Mr Gurokh Singh comments, “In September we appointed Sam Ashton at Christie & Co to market a new lease opportunity for a new tenant to trade as a bar or restaurant within our property. We were looking for an experienced licensed operator to take over this premises as soon as possible.

“Christie & Co introduced our new tenant within three weeks of marketing. Thank you to Sam and the Christie & Co team for their speedy and efficient services.”

Sam Ashton, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co comments, “I am very happy with the result in finding a new leaseholder for my client in quick succession. I am pleased we were able to complete this week just in time for the busy Christmas trading period. This again indicates the ongoing appetite for wet led bar premises in Yorkshire.”
