Great staff, great food, pretty good music. Never fails to satisfy. I've been to this place more than a thousand times in the last 25 years and it's always been a very relaxing place to hang out and have a drink, with surprisingly good food.

I've been going to Bamboo since the 70's when they had a jukebox in the corner. One of the best old fan bars around. So much is original, and I love that they never change the basics. Same bar, same booths, same pictures, same set...More
