TJ Dinch On Southern Hospitality
Leva Bonaparte wasn’t wrong when she said her larger-than-life staff was the real MVPs of Republic Garden & Lounge. TJ Dinch, the restaurant’s bartender, is dedicated to upholding the restaurant’s prestigious name. So much so that he even aligned himself against staff who, according to him, didn’t represent the restaurant properly.
Based on the teaser trailer, TJ will clash with Bourbon N’ Bubbles VIP Grace Lilly, who tells Leva that she left a shift early, in part, because of her allergies, a full moon, and other changes in her astrology. “How much attention do you f*cking need?” TJ confronts Grace then.
Luckily for us, the drama is all featured on Southern Hospitality.
Bravo’s new show Southern Hospitality premiered on November 28, 2022. It saw Leva Bonaparte and her employees including TJ working hard to please the guests at Republic Garden & Lounge.
“So excited to share all these memories 11/28 @bravotv #southernhospitality,” TJ shared his excitement on IG before the premiere.
Joining Leva 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, Lucía Peña, and Bradley Carter.
Besides Republic Garden & Lounge, TJ’s employees owned three other bars on King Street. Their premium sports bar has gleaming reviews on Google. And their fusion restaurant Mesu has a 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 ep where Patricia Altschul was shown having her own private liquor locker there.

Also, his net worth is comparatively less than that of his co-stars because he only joined Republic in September 2021.
Besides Republic Garden & Lounge, this younger man was also a “martini maker” at Bourbon N’ Bubbles, a Luxury Lounge &and Restaurant in Charleston, SC.
Since TJ’s a bartender, he often detoxed his body and even went a month or two without drinking alcohol or even caffeine. He said that he used alcohol to mask life’s struggles and the caffeine for that temporary high. So, taking a break helped him set his goals straight and focus on himself.
