Due to the tragic early passing of the owner, the iconic business known as the Anchor Inn, which also includes the very profitable Voodoo Nightclub, is to be sold. This well established concern, with spectacular views over the harbour, is located on the Lini Highway in Port Vila’s CBD. The main premises have recently been completely renewed and now offer a large main public area with central bar, kitchens & patrons terrace. The upper floor currently provides a similar area, although a good third is devoted to a wrap around balcony with uninterrupted harbour views. There are secure offices, storage and WC adjoining the main building. Catering to a loyal following from all sections of the community, the Anchor Inn has always been the venue of choice for major social and sporting celebrations. Moreover, is one of the only covered spaces large enough to host live international bands, such as Dragon and Fabba.
Famous worldwide, the Anchor is on the to-do list for many visitors, including Cruise Ship passenger; being a great place to meet up, have a quick lunch or cool down after a tour or day trip. The Voodoo Night Club, which currently uses the same premises, opens Wednesday to Saturday nights, and over the years has earnt the reputation as the only real late nightspot for dancing and letting your hair down. Both residents and visitors to Port Vila love the Voodoo.
The premises require direction and would benefit from a professional or enthusiastic owner’s input, either to complete the project as is, or inject new ideas. Although in the hands of the liquidator, both businesses continue to return a healthy profit at a level rarely seen in a local operation. Financials can be provided to serious buyers.
