THE DEED IS DONE
I closed on the sale my half of Q at noon today and I’m now back to being blissfully semi-retired again, as I was more than three years ago when I began the process of developing the club.
I say “semi-retired” because I’m actually going to be working with my father and our architects (the Seattle office of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson – the firm that designed Q) in getting what is planned to be a large mixed-use/residential construction project built in Louisville on the last big piece of undeveloped downtown real estate on the Ohio riverfront that will, hopefully, have a substantial club/lounge component as a part of its commercial operations (wink wink nudge nudge).
Coming up with the idea for Q – as I did with xl in New York back in 1998/99 and as the only partner in Q with experience in business, business start-ups, and nightclub operations – and then supervising the design and construction of Q was a labor of love for me. And I’d be happy to share with you all that’s transpired that has compelled me to desire to sell my interest in the business and part ways with the club – but I’m contractually obligated not to.
I wish for Q, the physical club, all the best.
I’ll be back later with a full roster of thank yous to the people involved with Q who deserve praise for what they do and did for the club and why they made my time as co-owner of the club something really special.
