Royal Merchant

The Royal Merchant was quietly sold a couple months back.

Out is Travis Champion, still a partner at L'Orignal, as Alexandre Besnard assumes control of the pub/tavern at 394 Saint-Jacques Ouest in Old Montreal with other principals.

Besnard has been busy of late. The entrepreneur's other projects include Le Confessional, Apt. 200, Rachel Rachel and the splashy new Jatoba, in partnership with Antonio Park, in the old Phillips Lounge.
