Meet Regina Williams, proprietor of Qutie’s Bar. After spells of bartendery all over the place, she now promotes party nights and runs the family biz in Ochi.
Tell us a bit about Qutie’s Bar.
Run by my family since 1989, the bar is in a great central spot to comfortably enjoy a drink or two. We sell all kinds of liquor, cool beers, cocktails and shots.
Your main customer base — tourists or locals?
Both... we serve our many regulars daily and we offer a warm welcome to the many tourists who visit our end of town.
So how do you promote an event or party, do you do this alone or as part of a team?
Events management is something I love — there is always a lot happening and it is a great way of being part of the pulse. Under the name Clean Skin, my team and I promote Tipsy Saturday every week at my Qutie’s Bar. Why not join us!
What, if anything else, would you really love to do?
To have a bigger spot — and to open a seafood restaurant with a smoking room, and of course a cocktail bar too.
What changes to Ocho Rios would you like to see?
The homeless need more attention, a dedicated center so they can come off the streets is a necessity, and perhaps local businesses could assist to provide food and supplies.
Do carrots scream when you chop them?
They calm down after a massage and a bottle of Magnum.
Qutie’s Bar is on Main Street, opposite the Singer store. It is co-joined to the Chosen Restaurant, another part of the family business.
