"I don't want to single out anyone, but a lot of big names and legends are here," said Gayle.
"People will speculate that Chris and Cuddy ago war, or Bolt, nothing like that. Just add it to your entertainment list," he said.
"Cuddy, I will still come by you, no love lost." Gayle reiterated.
Of course Ambassadors Walsh and Usain Bolt were in attendance, along with footballer Ricardo Gardner, West Indies president Dave Cameron and West Indies Women's coach Sherwin Campbell of Barbados.

"Once word was out that Gayle was opening a sports bar, Heineken had to be a part of it, being an international brand we totally aligned ourselves with Chris," revealed Douglas.
"This is now a Heineken Star Bar, which means it's the first for everything. If we are going to launch UEFA of which we are a global sponsor we are going to do it here because this is one of our Star Bars," added Douglas.
