Speakeasy bar

John from The Speakeasy bar very sadly died this morning. I'm sure this local character will be greatly missed.

. It was not a bar that I went in often but he always spoke when I went past.

All my condolences to his family and friends.

Sincere condolences from me too.

Like Sheila we didn't visit the bar but John always spoke when we walked past and he always made me smile when he came in Allsorts when I worked there.

That's very sad indeed. John had been around Nerja for many years and seemed to be known by everyone. And has been said, he always had a smile and greeting when he met you.

What a shock to read that John has passed away - It was only the other day that I had a good chat with him in the sunshine outside the bar.

He will be sadly missed, and condolences go to his family and Glyn.

Very sad, the Speakeasy pub is one I have been going to for more than 10 years, John used to work behind the bar, he and the place was always so friendly. The last years we always said hello when he was sitting outside, I always said Hello boss or Cheers captain and I was always greeted with a smile and a wave. R.I.P. John, there is always a bell at the end of round 12.

I walked by the pub tonight, but it was closed, yes, creepy feeling came over me. The place will probably stay, but it will not be the same.
