The sales brochure says: “Comprises ground floor wine bar with two one bed flats above. Let at £38,800 per annum.

“Ground floor - 10 year lease from March 27, 2015, at £25,000. Two modernised apartments off Penton Street at £13,800 per annum.”

Senior partner and auctioneer Adrian Little said: “The price reflects the short leasehold period. It is a cracking location and good address.”

They are an award-winning independent bar in the heart of the city centre on the renowned Trippet Lane, a short walk from the Cathedral, the City Hall and the Peace Gardens.

"Trippets are also home to a rare collection of images by acclaimed jazz photographer William Ellis, a great supporter of Trippets Lounge Bar.”
