What would you do with this pub to make it even more of a success?

The area

Located in the city centre there is easy access to all the city has to offer as well as a 20 min walk to the University campus, Pittodrie and the beach. Based in the town centre there is a spread of consumers but a greater proportion of young professionals and students nearby. Over 32,000 people (18+) live within a 20 min walking distance of the pub. Located in the city centre there is a range of independent bars and pubs as well as more familiar national chains such as Brewdog, All Bar One & Wetherspoons

The offer

We are planning a full refurbishment at the The Wig, that touches every part of the pub. This will develop an all singing and dancing, city-centre pub with great appeal to the key demographics of the area. This pub will offer a premium experience with a simple, but appealing menu, a very relaxed environment with a new and fresh internal sparkle and an external scheme to reflect the changes with great kerb appeal. The pub will benefit from new signage and finishes to reflect the internal changes with great kerb app

When refurbished, The Tilted Wig will offer:

• An extensive range of premium and craft lagers, spirits, wines, and cocktails and low and no alcohol options.

• A tight menu which compliments the drinks offer and can be delivered consistently. Looking for the operator to define in more detail

• The entertainment offer should complement the pub with regular live weekend music, Pub Quiz and other alternatives such as Comedy.

The Wig is available on our investment tenancy agreement. Click here for more information on this agreement.
