My partner and I have been working on a plan to open a bar here in Costa Mesa for some years.
But maybe there's an urgent need for a "climbing bar" somewhere else. What town badly needs such a place? Idyllwild, CA, seems to have a dearth of good bars, but how many climbers hang around the town after their climbs? There are three bars in Lone Pine, CA, and as far as I can tell they are mostly empty, even on summer weekends. Bishop, CA, has a handful of sad bars too; doesn't look like a new bar will be any more successful there.
Mammoth Lakes and June Lake appear to be having some problems.
That leaves Chamonix. Running a hospitality business in France is prohibitively expensive (I have heard that the only way anyone makes it work is by gaming the system).
Nunc est bibendum.
