Bamboo Bar and Grill is under NEW LOCAL OWNERSHIP!!
Bamboo Bar and Grill, West Seattle’s well-known destination for great food and entertainment, located on Alki Beach recently announced the restaurant is now under new ownership and they are making some big changes.
Grand RE-OPENING is scheduled for October 26, 2012 just in time for their famous “Halloween on the Beach and Costume Competition” featuring a DJ and dancing as well as some great prizes. According to the new owner Plamen Stoyanov, over the last year or so the Bamboo had “lost its way”. The #1 priority according to Plamen is to bring back the magic the Bamboo. “It will take work, but we are dedicated to bring fun back to the beach. I am removing many things that brought in the wrong clientele and bring back the things that attract the smart, professional customers who are looking to have a fun time.”
Safety and quality are the focus points of Bamboo’s new owner. How does he plan on doing that? “By increasing security headcount and changing the Bamboo’s overall entertainment.”, says Plumen.
It is not only about changing the look and feel of the Bamboo, the food and drink is being revamped as well. New drink and food menus are already done. “In the past the Bamboo was known for its unique delicious, consistent food. I want to bring that back” says John Theofelis . Switching some food vendors and focusing on local quality ingredients was the first step in this process. “We have trained and re-trained our support staff so that every customer gets the service they expect and deserve.”
Plamen is no stranger to the restaurant business. Having been the industry for over 18 years, he has seen what has worked and what hasn’t. “It is all about your customers, if you can win their hearts, they will be loyal. I enjoy winning hearts. It is important to be seen by your customers, they must know that you appreciate their business.”
Giving back to the community is important. The new owner already has a number of charitable events lined up, leveraging the Bamboo to increase charitable donations to a number of local charities.
Living literally 3 minutes from the Bamboo (via car), Plamen is a local West Seattleite and has lived here for over 8 years. Professional bike rider, Plamen rode for American and Italian bike racing teams and enjoys riding on the beach and around West Seattle. He really looks forward making the Bamboo a destination spot for everyone in West Seattle looking for a good, safe time.
