MACs American Bar, long a popular favorite with gringos and Costa Ricans alike for over 30 years, first at El Cruce in Escazú and then for 17 years at its current location in Sabana Sur, is available for sale or rent.
Superbly located, MACs’ building of two floors and a half basement housed in a 500 sq meter (5,400 sq feet) rests on a 252 sq meter lot (2,700 sq feet) with a street frontage of 6.9 meters (22.5 feet) right on the main traffic artery (12th Avenue) of Sabana Sur, better known as the Carretera Vieja a Escazú (parallel to the main highway leading to Escazú, Santa Ana, Ciudad Colón, etc.).
There are no official studies, but approximately 40,000 vehicles pass by MACs daily during weekdays.
There is an incredible lunchtime and after-work customer base. Within easy walking distance of 10 minutes and less from MACs are, among others, the huge La Sabana Oficentro business center; the National Gymnasium; Torre Universal (24 floors), where Microsoft already occupies three floors, projecting a payroll of 1,500 highly qualified professional employees; Costa Rica’s Comptroller General building; Grupo Sama Building; a luxury residential tower now under construction with many exclusive amenities, including its own private park and open air cinema; the ICE-Kolbi building; La Colmena office center; several apartment towers; and other smaller office buildings, all with their own parking. It is also close to the Costa Rica Tennis club with its hotel, and to other hotels such as Hotel Soluxe, El Sesteo, Torres del Lago, and KC Hotel. Also within easy walking distance are the National Stadium and National swimming pool.
A careful study of the major office towers and businesses reveals that once things return to normal, there will be almost 18,000 people working within a ten-minute walk of MACs.
MACs is also in front of La Sabana Metropolitan Park, which receives about 2,000,000 visitors every year.
The first floor of this well-known bar/restaurant has a full bar, a fully-equipped kitchen, and tables. The second floor has a bar, tables, an attractive outdoor seating area, and a small food service area. The basement is a bodega (storeroom).
