Opportunity Knocks: For lease – The Tabernacle

A number of super unique commercial rental arrangements have come up on the market as of late. One of the more interesting rentals is for The Tabernacle – a circa 1922 church that was converted into a 2,800 square foot bar and entertainment/event venue back in 2018.

Now vacant, The Tabernacle space is one of more unusual and inspiring venues around. The interior was gloriously painted by Jeremy Twiss, who was an employee of Sweet_ness 7 Café (located next door, at the corner of Grant and Lafayette) back when the cavernous space was built out.

During the height of its success, The Tabernacle had a full liquor licence, public assembly license, dance hall licence, and various bakery licences, according to the listing. There was a great energy/synergy between Sweet_ness 7 and The Tabernacle, thanks to the vision of owner Prish Moran.

Today, The Healing Grounds Café occupies the former Sweet_ness 7, while 211 Lafayette Street is in the midst of ‘searching’ for its next tenant.

The Tabernacle’s prime assets are:

200 foot tall ceilings

A stage

Two raised balcony platforms for seating – one of the balconies has a second bar

One bathroom, with room for another

A small prep kitchen area

It’s possible to install an ansul/hood system in the kitchen

Equipment, contents, and sound system can be purchased or leased
