Mink Bar is one of Middlesbrough’s most popular cafe bars with a reputation as a lively entertainment venue, hosting regular live bands, acoustic sessions, comedy and much more.
The premises is located on Corporation Road opposite Centre North East and the Cleveland Shopping Centre. It is close to the junction with Albert Road and Middlesbrough Town Hall. Nearby occupiers include Turtle Bay, HSBC, Barclays, Charles Clinkard, Bistrot Pierre, Lane 7, Flannels and Soho.
Middlesbrough Town Centre is currently undergoing a multi-million pound transformation with a new 138 bed Holiday Inn Express Hotel just a stone’s throw away and with the Town Hall recently completing its very own £8 million refurbishment. The Town Halls’ refurbishment will lead to the relocation of the registry office and the creation of a Heritage Visitor attraction.
The property comprises 2 traditional Victorian terraced properties that have been combined and lovingly restored to uncover the building’s history, with exposed up-cycled industrial and natural materials throughout.
The ground floor is currently fitted out as a bar area in a rustic style, with various seating areas, an elevated stage for live music performances, a beer store and male/female WCs. The 1st floor is fitted out in a more relaxed style, with a bar area, sofas and additional toilets. The 2nd and 3rd floors are currently fitted out as private accommodation but we easily lend itself to further expansion of the business. On the 2nd floor there is a bathroom, kitchen and seating area. The 3rd floor includes a bedroom.
