I've seen this in nautical themed restaurants before. I guess it would work. I'm thinking the poly might grab better to flat paint.

Ask your rep.

Try the kind of poly that is made for bar tops. You pour it on and it self levels

Envirotex lite. Pour on poly = 50 coats of regular poly. Got it from local SW. Not cheap but product was perfect for this bar and application. HO wanted a bullet proof, low maintenance bar top. Regular poly is gonna fade and wear out over time, especially at a restaurant. This company was great and the tech support was very responsive and helpful. Walked me through the setup and process and answered my specific questions. Would def use again and would highly recommend. I don't know about pouring over paint but should be fine.

That's a great looking bartop!

OP - find a company that can give you a tinted base coat (or tinted polyurethane primer) then poly overtop. Mixing products/brands is never a good idea. Stick with one brand, one system.

If he wants it black, just paint it in full gloss enamel?

Nothing you put on there is going to last long on an exterior bar top... year at most. It would be best to have him contact someone who does concrete or granite bar tops. I wouldn't put my name on that paint project.

Primer/sealer Ameron 185 HS, color coat Ameron PSX1001 BK-1, top coat PSX 1001 clear.

This is a marine system I've used that will hold up but maybe a little too industrial for what your looking for.
