Looking for a Flat in London? Live Where the Beatles Used to Work

Back in the 60s, 94 Baker Street was famous.  It was the site of the Apple Boutique, one of the very earliest business ventures of the Beatles.

There was a grand opening on December 5, 1967.  The only drink being served (well, officially, anyway) was apple juice.  Two days later, it opened to the public.

Along with Apple Records, the boutique was a bust, a giant money pit.  A few months later, it was shut down.

The building has now been sold to a developer for £6,000,000 (over $10m CAD) who plans to turn it into a block of five flats.  I have no idea what they’ll see for, but given the real estate prices in Marylebone, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
