A seafront venue which previously housed a restaurant is now on the market.

Azur in Marina Pavilion, St Leonards, closed down in January having operated on the seafront for more than a decade.

Now, the owners of the site are entertaining offers for a new business to breathe life back into the venue.

Owners Sea Change Sussex said: “We’re inviting proposals from any interested organisations so we can bring this popular venue back into use as soon as possible.

“It’s a two-storey property opposite the Royal Victoria Hotel with panoramic views over the beach and English Channel. The lower section was built in the 1930s and the upper part was added in recent years as part of the local regeneration programme.”

Property agent Fleurets is currently listing the venue and is looking for rental offers for the 14,000-square-foot site.

The site offers “panoramic views over the English Channel” and could be run as either one or two trading areas.

The lower promenade of the building, which was previously used as treatment rooms, includes offices, a store room and showers.

The area can also be used as a wedding venue or function room.

In the upper promenade there is a bar and restaurant space, where Azur traded, as well as a kitchen.

Azur ceased trading in January having first opened in 2008.

The property was put on the market earlier this month and will remain on the market until May 17, when offers will be considered.

A spokesman for agents Fleurets said that offers had already been received.
