5th Street Wood Fired Rotisserie on Hillside Ave. hits the market at nearly $8 million
Published February 13, 2020
One of the most popular neighbourhoods pubs in the City of Victoria has been put up for sale eight years after its first ownership change.
5th Street Wood Fired Rotisserie at 1028 Hillside Avenue in Quadra-Hillside, which is also referred to as 5th Street bar and grill, is on the market once more at a price of $7.9 million. The sale includes an 8,600 square foot building and a 17,600 square foot property with 32 vehicle parking spaces.
The dining hub, which is split between a 120-seat restaurant and a 95-seat pub, was sold in early 2012 by Victoria restaurateur and former city councillor Shellie Gudgeon to her brother Michael Murphy, known for 10 Acres Bistro and The Local Kitchen, and publican David Kindrat who formerly operated Lucky Bar but operates the adjacent Fiamo eatery. A third businessman was also involved in the purchase.
Today the restaurant is reportedly under Kindrat’s control.
5th Street was founded in the late 1990s by Shellie Gudgeon and Michael Murphy, although Murphy sold his stake in the operation’s early years. Gudgeon, meanwhile, remains active in the city’s dining scene with Il Terrazzo, an Italian restaurant in Waddington Alley between lower Yates and Johnson streets.
