Skandi-man does deal with plaza owner & rents the whole complex..
Well, the founder of JJ's is a Scandinavian who turned what I first thought was an unlikely prospect into possibly the most profitable bar in town.
But.. other people from that part of the world have sometimes been suckered into paying way over the odds for rent and then pursued a business model that was clearly doomed to fail from day one - remember 'Big Mama's..?
I had a hunch that the owner of Poonsuk Plaza would soon be angling for more money, given its evident success; but what has this guy had to offer to get the whole place to himself I wonder?
JJ's pricing is carefully balanced to reflect the cost of the music without being seen to go OTT - I doubt there's much headroom for raising prices to offset increased rents, without serious consequences for trade..
I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I shall be sober and you will still be ugly...
