Clay Irwin signed a deal today to sell his downtown Clearwater bar, the Lucky Anchor, after a little less than two years operating a watering hole in the shadow of Scientology's spiritual mecca.

Clay is a familiar figure here at the Bunker. He opened up the Lucky Anchor on January 1, 2017, and then the next month became infamous for taking a jaunt through Tom Cruise's unfinished condo while filming it live.

Clay has been surveilled by Scientology, and he's hosted rally nights for fans of Leah Remini's series, Scientology and the Aftermath. But several weeks ago, he let us know that he was tiring from trying to run a bar in a mostly dead downtown and while being something of a lightning rod for Scientology aggression.
