JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group have been appointed to market the popular pub, and said that the venue “consistently generates over $100,000 per week in revenues.”

The pub has a strong craft beer focus, hosts 12 poker machines and is located on a corner site on Devonshire Street.

John Musca, national director – investment sales, JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group, said, “ ‘The Dove’ is unique in that it will easily deliver astute purchasers a 10+ percent yield at purchase, a rarity in the food and beverage centric hotel space, with almost no risk and on a big revenue base, so it’s really a big hotel opportunity on a manageable footprint.” 

Much like the recent keenly contested sales of the Trinity Bar ($8.5 million ) and Royal Exhibition Hotel ($19 million ), both close by in Surry Hills, ‘The Dove’ is another quality inner-city hotel offering, which has reportedly been targeted by some of the bigger F&B hoteliers in Sydney.
