Building owner Bill Hock put the place up for sale last summer and current manager Jeff Carreras decided to take his business a few blocks over to Magazine Street.
The "new" location had been tried by more than a couple of owners who could never draw a big enough crowd to make the large space work. Driving by tonight and seeing crowds of revelers pouring out to the sidewalk, I don't think it will be a problem again. Renamed Tracey's for a 1940s Irish pub predating Parasol's, the bar will retain its great menu and loyal staff.
