Status of El Faro/Wicky's?

I see a few old threads without much conversation, but thought I'd ask again...what is the current status of the old Wicky's at El Faro Condos? From the website it seems it remains vacant. Is El Faro now managing the "beach club"/chairs? Is there even an option to buy a beer or a meal onsite? It's been a couple of years since our last visit and it seems odd to me that nothing has occupied the restaurant space.
I know they had some legal issues so I'm sure that's part of it, but interested in any info!

The space where Wicky's was is for sale.
No place to buy foor/drink there that I know of. Next door (to the north) is Zenzi and Lido's for food and drink.

Thanks AL! I know there are plenty of good options nearby, just sad that nothing has taken that spot. When it first opened, Wicky's was our favorite beach club!

Wicky's was my favorite restaurant. Best steaks and blue cheese iceberg wedge salad around.
I had heard that Jack Perlman (El Taj Condos, Plank and Imprevist restaurants, etc.) had purchased the place but nothing ever became of that.
