Former disco and bars complex the Toby House is up for sale at 105,000. The two-storey building at Grace Hill, Folkestone, has been closed for more than a year and been on the market for over six months. It used to be run by Mr. Mike Oliver, of Oliver’s La Clique discotheque, Dover Road, Folkestone. The disco and its bars is up for sale through Folkestone estate agent Daniel Smith. This freehold also includes a nearby Victorian house at 13, Copthall Gardens. Toby’s was once one of only a handful of discotheques for young people in Folkestone. A season of live gigs for local and national bands was put on in 1982 and during this period the now chart-topping band Blancmange played there. Although the disco and house are together in the package for 105,000, the brewery which owns both is willing to let them go separately. Daniel Smith says the business had a turnover of 100,000 a year. It is at present vacant and requires “to be refitted with a new inventory”. A spokesman said there are several parties interested in the disco building and until a genuine offer for purchase is made the name of the brewery is being withheld.
