A FORMER town centre bar is to go up for auction again - with its guide price slashed.

The venue on Duke Street, which was known as Mollie's, shut down in 2022 after St Helens Council revoked its licence.

The building, which has been used as a shop in the past, was previously put up for auction and advertised by various estate agents.

Alternative uses?

Although its most recent use was as a nightclub, it has development potential subject to planning permission.

The building has been on the market over recent years, with the asking price set at about £150,000, however, it has remained unsold.

Now it will be open for offers with Auction House North West, at an online auction that runs over June 11 and 12.

Guide price slashed

The guide price is reduced to £99,000.

In a statement, a notice advertising the bar's sale said: "Prior to being a night club the property was a furniture shop for many years.

"The property would suit a variety of uses subject to the relevant permissions."

The former Mollie's building is one of a number of St Helens town centre bars up for sale. Other's include the Wheatsheaf and Kingdom on Westfield Street.

In recent years, nearby buildings such as the former Ena Shaw building opposite have been repurposed, with developers converting it to offices, a tea rooms and furniture store.
