MOBILE CATERING / CAFE DOUBLE DECKER
An MCW Metrobus, the mainstay of London Transports’ central London fleet in the 1980s. Adapted as a mobile club Café in 2010 by The London Bus Export Company to a very high specification.
The front half of the lower deck is a well equipped kitchen area with kitchen/bar with hinged top access to the entrance area. All work top surfaces are of Corian (composite stone), covering generous cupboard and drawer storage. The coffee machine depicted is not included in the sale.
The rear half of the bus opens into an attractive café area with curved banquette-style seating, trimmed in luxurious Bridge of Weir (suppliers to Rolls Royce and Jaguar) brown leather. The seat structure and the ceiling incorporate recessed LED lighting. The rear bulkhead wall offers cupboards for sound systems etc. and the facility to mount a television
The original front entrance is panelled over and incorporates a large generator compartment; above this the side window can open up as a serving hatch.
The exterior panels present a very clean aspect in metallic silver livery, complimented by chrome wheel embellishers. There is a large extending wind-out cassette side awning above the double door entrance, which offers scope for individual branding above an extended hospitality area.
The original convex profile of the upper deck has been given a new flat surface with a high quality engineered wood finish. Forward of the stairwell are twin dinettes with leather seats, matching those on the lower deck. The whole of the rear of the bus is open plan and the ceiling lights specially designed to present the lowest possible profile to afford maximum headroom. This particular model of vehicle has the most generous headroom of any double decker design. It therefore presents possibilities for static displays or animated dancing, or for a large capacity dining area.
We would be happy to quote for supplying custom seats and tables on request.
