Very interesting indeed. For anyone who doesn't know, Doug ran BB for years so it makes sense.

Yeah, he was the VP of Hospitality for Ross Ventures, who at the time owned Mexis, Back 9 and BB. I worked at Mexis for a year under Doug... great guy!

The ale house confirmed via Twitter:

Isn't Doug one of the ones behind the King St. Ale House?

Maybe we finally see that building back to the way it was years ago.

I remember eating a Mexis and then going in the Cosmo for drinks afterwards. Bouncers on each side of the double doors leading into the Cosmo, because at the time you couldn't have hard liquor and draft beer in the same establishment, so they had a bouncer on each side to keep you from taking draft into the Cosmo and mixed drinks into Mexis!

Well if you are too young to remember the Cosmo, then yeah I suppose, but not that long ago!

Cosmo closed, the left side of the building upstairs they redid into Brewbakers, out front was still Mexis until the moved down the street a couple of years ago. Out back was the Back 9, but before all of that, the back and the upstairs was all Cosmo, Mexis out front.

Sure was, with the disco saddle hanging above the dance floor and all.

Not Doug alone. Two lawyers are in it as well. One of them a former local Liberal MLA...
