Bar could be star of the 80s revival

When John Lewis sells out of shoulder pads, you know an 80s revival is in full swing – and where better to celebrate than Bar Latina in Tottenham High Road, which was once owned by that decade’s ultimate pin-up, the glamour model and pop singer Samantha Fox?

As Sam’s Bar, the 4,000 square foot venue was then a wine bar that played host not only to Sam’s showbiz friends but also to the stars of nearby Tottenham Hotspurs football club. Today, the freehold – which includes a four-bed manager’s flat on the first floor and a further two floors of accommodation on long leases – is for sale through licensed leisure specialists AG&G for offers in the region of £625,000.

“It’s been through a few hands since it was big in the 80s but this is an attractive building in a busy location that has considerable potential to an owner/operator, an investor or for alternative use,” says AG&G director James Grimes. “It represents good value, even though the upper parts are on such long leases that they are virtually untouchable.”
