Was having a sunset drink at the No Name Bar several nights ago and had a question regarding the amount they charged me for a glass of white wine. (Nothing big, but I had just asked for a glass of house chardonnay but they poured me something else and the difference was 30 pesos. They had poured me a more expensive wine and were very nice to charge me the house price.) Who should come out to talk to us, but the previous owner of French Quarter, Mike.
I have to admit, I'm a little confused as he had told us he was retiring from the restaurant biz when Susan first bought French Quarter and now here he is running the show at No Name. Did Grant and his wife leave the island or just retire from the biz, as well?

I heard they left the island. Mike was bored in retirement & wanted something to do, so this was perfect for him.

The bar is owned by the hotel and run by a hired manager.

What I believe is true is: The former owner of the French Quarter sold that bar/restaurant to another American last year. Then he turned around and bought the No Name Bar from Grant recently. So, yes, new owner.

Mike from the French Quarter bought the No Name Bar business from Grant and his wife. He leases the premises from the owner of the Barracuda hotel. Grant and his wife are now in Turkey and may come back for vacations only. Some good changes to the No Name Bar in the future.
