    Opening a restaurant/bar is one of the dumbest investments you can make unless you're an expert in restaurants/bars

    Can't be harder than starting your own whiskey brand.

    Does it provide you with the genuine conor experience? Lines of coke and old men to punch?

    For some reason I'm reminded of Latte Larry's in Curb. Spite restaurant game on point.

    And we all know that his whiskey venture was a roaring success with some countries even replacing water with proper 12 because of its great flavour and nutritional value.

    Another hour, another JCCc Conor thread.

    Gotta give this kid props for toughing it out. The rest of the Conor nuthuggers got beaten completely into submission within 24 hours of the Glass Legged Rat's leg giving out.

    He's the last one left, holding down the fort.

    Blame my phone, I get updates from facebook, instagram, and twitter on McGregor news by the hour.

    You gotta admit, that restaurant looks pretty good.

    Yeh, the place does look good. The Black Forge is a cool name too.

    Conor is not this great businessman he thinks he is. His 'charisma' opened up a few doors and he managed to bottle lightning with proper 12. All this is great when you are a winning. Conor is not winning, he's just an unpleasant man that says stupid shit.. Good luck attracting punters with that attitude.

    It probably is. McGregor didn't exactly start his own whiskey brand. Ken Austin started it using McGregor's money.

    I mean, on the other hand, hundreds of millions of dollars in profits ain't bad either. At a minimum. Mcgregor invested his MMA and boxing earnings well.

    How would you define elite ? Would it have to be the second best restaurant of all time to be considered elite ?

    Place looks empty AF. I hope the elders of Kildare made their move.

    LMAO do you even know how much money he made by selling his Proper12 stake??

    I won't ask what kind of better investments you made as that would be like shooting on Red Cross as we say in Italy,
    so I'll just invite you to provide a list of business ventures requiring so little actual work, and that much of a return.

    Conor is part of investment group and he isn't managing anything. Assuming he has done this properly he has experts within the industry handling the day to day affairs. I would be surprised if this isn't the case as Conor may be unlikable but his business acumen hasn't been terrible or anything close to it.
