Let - March 2016
Extremely Prominent Fitted Bar/Restaurant to Let, 4,717 sq ft (438 sq m), 186 Portobello Road, London, W11


The property occupies one of the most important corner sites on Portobello Road, at the junction with Talbot Road. The Electric Diner / Cinema and E&O are in close proximity.

Portobello Market is one of the busiest tourist attractions within Greater London. In addition to the daily influx of tourists the area is of course associated with the bohemian high net worth individuals who reside locally.

Notting Hill retains a unique village-like atmosphere rivalled by few other areas in London. It remains an important bar and dining destination whose expansion has been limited by the availability of suitable buildings. In short, this really is an unrivalled opportunity. View location map.
