Of all the gin joints: Lenton Bar calls last drinks as it looks for new owner

Posted on

Calling all cocktail aficionados! Have you ever dreamed of owning a bar? Well, grab your cocktail shakers—Lenton Bar is looking for a new owner.

Appearing at all of Canberra’s big occasions, the mobile bar has been a favourite for party goers since it first appeared on the scene four years ago.

Co-founded in 2018 by Amit Oberoi, Manuk Samarasinghe and Matt Harris, Lenton Bar offers the ultimate celebratory experience by making life easy and coming to the party, ready to help it carry on long into the night.

After working with some of Canberra’s largest brands and being part of countless weddings, parties, and special occasions, Amit, Manuk and Matt are calling last drinks as they provide a final opportunity for interested buyers to pick up the successful business.

“It’s a bit unfortunate but it’s the nature of the business,” says Amit.

“The business outgrew us. We sort of are shifting into the next phase of our life and the work that it requires we couldn’t provide anymore.”

As Amit, Manuk and Matt all look to move out of the hospitality industry, the trio is hoping to sell the bar by 30 July to someone passionate to carry on the create and celebrate mantra.

“It’s a great project for somebody who’s looking to earn an additional income on the side,” says Amit. “It’s the perfect side hustle!”

Amit says that being there for all of Canberra’s special occasions has been his favourite part of co-owning the bar and he has endless fond memories of helping locals celebrate.

While he’s sad to be moving on, he’s excited to see where the bar can go next.

“The brightest memories are working with people and sharing their special day with them…It’s sad not to be part of those types of events anymore but we’re excited to hand it off to somebody who can put in new energy and add new flavour.”

The lucky buyer will become the proud owner of the custom spec outdoor bar built on a trailer bed along with three custom spec indoor bars, thousands of dollars of inventory and more.

They will also have access to Lenton’s existing client base and continue to hold the reputation of being one of Canberra’s best bars on wheels.

“I think that it presents an opportunity for somebody who’s really enthusiastic about running events, working with people and willing to explore new ideas…there’s a lot of flexibility and autonomy in owning a business,” says Amit.

“It’s a great creative outlet.”
