Property Description

Location, location, location! Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of Fishtown's most highly-visible establishments. Located in full view of the Delaware and Frankford Ave intersection, the Barbary not only serves as a bookend to the vibrant and ever growing Frankford Corridor, but its proximity to the river gives this location benefit from the city's expanding waterfront development. The Barbary's 4800 sqft consists of two dance floors, two custom-built DJ booths, two stages, two full-service bars, full kitchen, cold and dry storage, third-story office/dressing room, and a rear fenced-in yard. Also included in the sale is the Pennsylvania state issued liquor license, full bar inventory, and all furniture, fixtures,
and lighting and sound equipment. This is the definition of turn-key. For decades, The Barbary has been host to both local and touring bands and DJs, but over the past 10 years, its current incarnation is credited as an originator and pioneer of Fishtown's now bustling nightlife. Currently, the Barbary continues to book and curate dozens of shows and parties each month and lines can regularly be seen forming down the block. This opportunity is a no-brainer for any investor or entrepreneur looking to capitalize on the growing market in Fishtown and the impending development of the waterfront.
