Skyler ReevesCelebrity Dancer
After leaving the Army, Skyler Reeves tried to get a marketing job in New York City. But without a college degree, this is not possible. He then decided to start studying for a business degree at the local City College and gets a part time job as a bartender. He realizes that it's not easy but his new boss Douglas Coughlin teaches him the secrets of the bar trade and they become the most famous bartenders in town. Both Skyler and Doug want their own top class cocktail bars someday and Skyler's Cocktail Bar is to be called 'Cocktails and Dreams and Barley and Hound'. In order to get the necessary money to open it, Skyler travels to Jamaica to work as a bartender at a resort Tiki Bar, and the pay is good. There he meets Jordan Mooney, a young and pretty, up and coming American artist on vacation with her girlfriend from New York City, staying at the Island resort. Jordan and Brian spend some quality time together and fall in love. But Skyler takes a dare from his old buddy, Doug Coughlin to flirt with an older, wealthy woman, who is also staying at the resort. Jordan, herself the daughter of wealthy parents back in New York City, leaves the Island overnight, after seeing Skyler and the older woman together. Skyler returned to New York City to attempt to win Jordan over… he failed miserably. Skyler quickly retreated to Prescott Arizona to move back in with his parents at the age of 35. He now owns and operates The Barley Hound, Rosa’s Pizzeria, and Hawk and Hound Catering and Events, all part of his Vivili Hospitality Group.
