The defiant owner of a Bristol restaurant that was almost shut down last year amid police concerns it was “operating as a bar” says a party night will go ahead despite licensing chiefs refusing permission. Meran Aalipour, who runs The Cuban, at Harbourside, hit out at city councillors after they rejected his application to serve alcohol without food at the event, described as a “celebration of the armed and emergency services”. During a hearing last summer, police said they believed the eatery in Millennium Promenade was flouting its restaurant licence by being run illegally as a bar to pull in more customers. Neighbours had complained about noise and claimed the venue was staying open later than allowed, while officers found fewer door staff on duty than required. But the council decided in August that it should be allowed to stay open after being told there was no crime or disorder. At yesterday's (February 14) licensing sub-committee, members heard The Cuban … [Read more...] about Restaurant says it will still hold party despite council refusal
In a world of long and complex legal agreements, it is notable for its brevity and simplicity. "We talk about a one-page man. It's not off the ground I licked it," he says, a reference to his late father, the former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds, who famously sought to have issues distilled down to a single page. On Friday, he finished working for the family business after selling his last 15pc stake in the company to Goodman's company ABP. Reynolds says the sale has been an emotional one, albeit one that has been in the making for some time. "I came to terms with the fact that C&D was not going to be 'Reynolds' back in 2008 when Larry and I did the deal. And in my mind, it was always a natural progression over time that at some point I would exit the business." The initial deal was borne out of a pivotal and potentially catastrophic moment in the business, which had originally been established by Albert Reynolds in 1969. In 2006, a fire destroyed the pet food factory in … [Read more...] about Businessman Philip Reynolds is looking for a new challenge: ‘It’s time to look beyond a pet food tin’
ANYONE who thought Harry Styles’ career would go to pot when One Direction split was sorely mistaken. His fortunes shot up in the last financial year with the singer raking in £12million from touring, new documents show. From April 2017 to 2018, during which time he put out his debut album and performed globally, his company Erskine Touring logged the huge profits. But his real earnings will be even higher, as the accounts do not include the money he made from record sales, his acting career or his lucrative modelling jobs, including one campaign for Gucci. Erskine Records, which holds his earnings from music sales, had £21million in the previous year. An industry insider said: “These figures prove he really can sustain a career without his bandmates and it’s very promising for his future. Harry doesn’t need One Direction to make him money any more and he can do things his way now.” One Direction announced their hiatus in August 2015 but … [Read more...] about Harry Styles makes £12m from touring to eclipse One Direction earnings — and that’s without money from lucrative modelling and acting jobs
