LONDON  ROUTEMASTER  BUS

 

MOBILE  BAR

 

 

 

This fantastic iconic 1967 London Routemaster Bus was extensively refurbished and converted into a fully functioning, self-contained mobile bar / hospitality unit earlier in 2013. No expense was spared and everything was overhauled and hand built by skilled professional craftsmen making this one of the finest Routemaster conversions ever built.

 

Since then we have completed a number of very successful events where the new Bus Bar has performed perfectly.


Only the best quality of equipment has been installed throughout with warranties included.


Mechanically, the bus features an excellent Iveco engine, which runs very smoothly and comfortably sits at 45mph. You can take it on the motorway and easily tour the country going from event to event. 

I spent a fortune overhauling the brakes, gearbox and engine in order for them to last throughout the time it will be used as a bar (many years). It has not let me down once and is very easy to drive with power steering, automatic gearbox and is possible to drive on a standard UK car licence if you have the provision for 7.5ton (passed before 1997).

 

It has already covered over 1,000,000 miles around the streets of London and I'm sure will do at least the same again!!! The body is built from aluminium so will never rust.

  


The downstairs bar serves via the side of the bus through 4x custom made lockable serving hatches and we normally use 4-6 staff to operate it at an event. 


Downstairs features include

               25ft front bar / 20ft back bar

               5x lift up lockable serving hatches and lockable rear door

               2x 300 bottle triple sliding door back bar fridges

               2x MF Refrigeration ice bank remote draft beer coolers

               CCTV Recordable System + LCD Screen mounted in bar

               8x 11 gallon (88 pint) kegs storage under front bar

               4x illuminated fonts with 3 products on each

               1x 60/40 gas line & 1x 70/30 gas line

               4x gas bottle storage area

               Dozens of LED's for lighting (blue/white)

               Ice buckets / drip trays / storage areas, 2x tills

 

 

Upstairs offers a truly unique hospitality area which offers a real 'wow' factor at any event. 

The roof opens up with 2x custom made sliding aluminium roof sections which are very simple to operate. 

You can comfortably hold 25-30 guests at a time.

 

Upstairs features include

               Double slide opening roof

               Lounge style Black Leather seating for 15 guests

               Built in bar area with bottle fridge and under counter storage

               BOSE stereo system

               LED flat screen television with DVD Player

               Blue LED's

               Non-slip rubber safety flooring

 

The bus is powered by a 240v ring main and armoured flex cable is provided with the bus. 

I usually take my own generator and the bus uses around 5kva when in full operation. Some venues will provide their own power.


This is prime time of year to take on the bus as although your main season is from March - October, all of the bookings for the large events are about to take place in the new year. You can work through the winter at horse racing fixtures, rugby matches, etc. 


I can show invoices for £1,500 / day dry-hire where you simply drop the bus off, they operate it and collect it when they're done.

 

In terms of achievable revenue, I have regulary taken over £10,000 CASH on a day, could easily do a lot more! Also bare in mind that events run for 2-5 days normally too. 

We normally take around  £1,500-£2,000 / serving hour  when busy.


You could easily make the bus pay for itself in its first season. 

 

You may ask why am I getting rid of the bus if it makes such a fortune?  

Reason being that I am concentrating on my property company and wish to have my summers back to myself!

 

It's a great business attending some fantastic events and meeting some great people. 

 


Overall this really is a fantastic unit and always receives a superb response wherever it's seen, with people stopping to take pictures and asking to hire it for their event!

  

Any interested parties are more than welcome to came and have a look at the bus for themselves where it is set up at my unit near to Hitchin, Hertfordshire.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
