Ever fancy owning your own bar and nightclub? Well now’s your chance!
Warrenpoint’s famous Marine Bar – complete with Club Cheri nightclub – has been put up for sale.
The Marine Bar complex is a mainstay of the County Down coastal resort and draws huge crowds from all over, with many from County Armagh among their number.

Described as an “extensive licensed premises”, it is being marketed by Osborne King property consultants, who have been instructed to offer it for sale “due to owner/vendor retirement”.
The agent advises: “This is a mid‐terrace traditionally constructed over two-and-a-half levels which has been extended to the rear, providing a purpose‐built licensed premises in the form of a public house and nightclub.
“Internally the property is laid out to provide a front bar, rear lounge as well as the self-contained nightclub to the rear ground floor, accessed through a separate entrance off Marine Parade.

Stretching to close to 11,000 sq ft, any sale would include fixtures and fittings but not stock.
And for any buyer, the Marine Bar complex is described as being “suitable for residential re‐development or other commercial uses, subject to necessary approvals”.
The agent adds: “The subject provides an opportunity for a purchaser to acquire this substantial town centre licensed premises. The ground floor licensed premises is finished to a reasonable standard.
“The upper floors are dated but could be utilised as part of the business or converted into residential subject to planning.
“Clearly the building itself may suit conversion to residential also.”
