    Expressions of Interest close 8th April 2024 and shortlist is notified by 19th April 2024

    1 Laman Street, Newcastle is a bespoke hospitality opportunity for a café/ restaurant located within the reimagined Newcastle Art Gallery. Commercial Collective is taking Expressions of Interest closing 8th April 2024 followed by a selective tender.

    The Gallery is currently undergoing a major refurbishment, bringing with it a projection to attract 150,000 visitors annually. Located in the heart of Newcastle, with proximity to the buzzing hotspot that is Darby Street, and within walking distance to the nearby Civic Theatre, the location is second to none.

    With approval to operate from 6am to 10pm this opportunity provides not only local Darby Street foot traffic but cross-patronage from the gallery itself.

    The café/restaurant space features 118sqm* of indoor patron space appropriate for 100 individuals with a fully covered 59sqm* terrace and a 39sqm* kitchen, waste room, cleaners' room and dry/ cold storage, handed over as a warm shell.

    The café/restaurant should deliver a unique, top-tier dining experience that capitalises on the connection between the art gallery and the restaurant by embracing opportunities to create menus that promote the gallery's activities and programming themes. Event catering options from gallery events may be available however the café/restaurant operator will thrive in this location as a standalone operator from the local business and gallery patrons.

    Expertise and previous experience in a similar area will be highly regarded in this Expressions of Interest and Selective Tender process.

    Key features includes:
    • 118sqm* indoor patron space
    • 59sqm* terrace dining space
