Take Five Restaurant & Jazz Bar sits in one of the famous "Six Sisters". The Six Sisters are six houses (circa 1894) that they survived the 1931 earthquake. It has panoramic views out across the Pacific Ocean with local landmarks Cape Kidnappers and Mahia Peninsula in the distance.

This is one of Napiers's best locations, being only five minutes' walk from town centre and located amid a cluster of Motels, Hotels, Restaurants, Bars, and other entertainment venues.

The Restaurant provides several dining options, including alfresco seating out front, and three dining areas inside including one upstairs. The upstairs dining area is flexible allowing for intimate tables with ocean views, or re-set for groups or functions.

The main bar is downstairs and provides ready access and service to all the dining areas. There is also an area upstairs that has previously been used as a bar. This area could service as a bar again or could convert to dining space.

The Kitchen is upstairs. It is open plan, compact and efficient. There is an additional separate small kitchen used for dessert preparation and plating.

The Restaurant has served as the long time venue for the local Jazz Club. The current owner also works with other musical groups, including hosting the Acoustic Music Club once a month.

Large sky lights provide excellent natural light during the day and it is very effectively used to show off local artists' work.

Business Broker's Comments:

Take Five Restaurant represents a great opportunity for a capable operator to secure a great location in Napier. The premises provide flexibility and allow a new owner to expand on the foundation already in place.

What a great venue to combine Food, Music and Art.
