Another nail in the coffin of old-skool Brit Montemar-Bajo, if even Tom's Tavern can't turn a profit that'll be the end for most of the rest of them I suspect.

They will probably find a buitre capitalista to buy it, good location and a reasonable size, watch it turn into yet another parillada Argentina...

Well one can hope of course Rosey - but from experience at the back end of last year many businesses were on Rent Only as they couldn't get any "trespasa" fees...

Having said that, their are always many in the UK that move over to "live the dream" so who knows.... ;-)

This is the problem...the freeholders are still thinking in terms of when all the snowbirds used to come down in the winter and spend four or five nights a week going out for a drink - those days are long gone!

Plus, even when its busy in the summer most of the visitors don't want the old-skool Montemar-Bajo experience any more, They're all in the chiringuitos, or along at either the Marina or La Carihuela - so it's not even that busy along there during the summer these days.
