Anybody want to buy a famous bar? The Sundance Saloon on the Parker Strip is for sale with a listing price of $4.5 million.
Sundance was best-known for being ‘the’ epic party spot on the river back in the 70s and 80s, with years of successive river rats pulling up their boats and packing it out for drinks, live music, food, foam parties and much more.
It had been closed for years until 2014, when the original owner, Jim Shubin, reopened it on Memorial Day and advertised it for sale. Norm Turley, a retired police officer from Long Beach and co-owner of a bar in Belmont Shore, saw the ad. A desert racer for years, Turley knew Sundance, and decided to buy the property and keep it open.
The 1.5 acre property comes with a 18,000 square foot building, including bar, restaurant, stage, gathering areas, docks including outdoor stage and outdoor bar, dance floors, boat and waverunner slips and almost 300 feet of river frontage.
