Lucía Peña On Southern Hospitality
Lucía Peña always knew she was made for TV. And thanks to her employer Leva Bonaparte, her dream came true.
After Leva departed from Southern Charm season 7, the star was handed her own show, Southern Hospitality. So, this turned out not only to be a blessing to Leva but also a boon to her employees including Lucía who worked at Republic Garden & Lounge.
As per Leva, her restaurant might be popular for its ambiance and name but it was majorly thanks to her larger-than-life staff who each shone in their own light. And we couldn’t agree more. The Republic’s VIP server, Lucía made each day feel somewhat new. Her charm, talent, and wisdom for making the guests feel at home were the best you’d find in Charleston, SC.
Joining Lucía for the inaugural season of Southern Hospitality were her co-stars/workers Mikel Simmons, Grace Lilly, Joe Bradley, Maddi Reese, Mia Alario, Will Kulp, Emmy Sharrett, TJ Dinch, and Bradley Carter.
Besides Republic Garden & Lounge, Lucía’s employees also owned three other bars located on King Street. Their premium sports bar has gleaming reviews on Google. And their fusion restaurant Mesu has a whole lot of flare offering a menu of Mexican food and sushi. It invites guests to come and enjoy Mesu’s “bold flavors, exotic plates, and well-crafted cocktails.”
Finally, they owned Bubbles N’ Bourbon. It was also featured in an ep on Southern Hospitality — the one where Patricia Altschul was shown having her own private liquor locker there.
Southern Hospitality premiered on November 28, 2022.
Fun Fact: Lucía and Leva were the only Southern Charm star with kids.
