At the Chesterfield, Ed Bailey and Lucky Campbell Kissed and Made Up Today

A press release landed this afternoon attempting to clarify the disagreement between Ed Bailey and Lucky Campbell, co-owners of the Chesterfield. If you've been following the drama, Campbell was escorted out of his bar last week by police, and several employees were either fired or walked out under their own volition. Then Lucky returned last night, to a triumphant all night happy hour celebration.

The statements issued by Bailey and Campbell shed little light on the dispute that was sufficiently passionate to warrant a police escort.

Ed Bailey:

It is unfortunate how things have unfolded at The Chesterfield and I'm disappointed to say the least. I have continued to be very supportive of this bar and its success. Unfortunately an internal issue that we were working hard to handle privately became a public spectacle, which both parties deeply regret. Eddie and I have resolved our differences and look forward to putting this behind us," said Ed Bailey. "The Chesterfield is back to business as usual with Eddie at its helm.

Eddie Campbell:

Sometimes emotions can get in the way of better judgment. Ed has been a great mentor to me and he is a great guy. We had professional differences and I'm sorry how things transpired. I'm passionate about The Chesterfield, as it is a life long dream of mine, and I'd like to apologize to everyone involved. Ed and I have worked things out and I am glad to be back behind the bar. I'm humbled by the support I've received from the community and look forward to making cocktails for the people of Dallas.

Kinda boring right? Maybe we should all get back to what the Chesterfield is best for: booze

Check out our slide show of some of Lucky's best cocktails and then use them to play the Chesterfield drinking game.

And sometime in the next couple of months we will see a story about an 'amicable' parting of the ways because one of them will be going away.

Why do you care so much to complain about it? It's a nice bar with good food and drink, and usually good service.
