All in Bar

LIVE! on Elgin - Jon & Lawrence

“We have a great deal of respect for each other and what we bring to the table. We have our areas of expertise and are careful not to cross the lines into each other's territory.  I learned early on to leave everything pertaining to music to Jon. He knows the biz, he knows the people.  That's the line in the sand.  There is not real final say.  We discuss, weigh pros and cons, and compromise based on what's best for the venue.  We are 50/50 partners in every way.  Granted, we don't have much social time together!  One of us is always here.”

Cellar 82 - Kasey

“Fast forward many years and many jobs in the industry (wineries, liquor reps, bartender) My husband and I took a trip to Chicago and fell in love with a tiny champagne bar and wanted to bring that concept back to Ottawa. When we started looking for locations we realized we would have to basically open a restaurant and that isn’t something that we wanted. We really just wanted to open a tiny tasting bar. Not seeing a location that would suit our needs, we decided to take it mobile! “
