That's right, the cool Asian themed restaurant, bar, and live music venue has closed forever. Located across Newport Blvd. from the House of Tiki, the ultra cool restaurant served a plethora of tiki drinks including bowl drinks with a vintage Chinese flair. My inside sources tell me that the owners were over the restaurant/ bar business and have sold the place to people who will turn it into an Italian restaurant.
I most recently saw the return of the legendary Tiki Tones there in July. Check out pics some that I shot that night: http://www.tikitones.com/
Bummer. All the cool stuff turns out to be too cool for the masses to keep alive...

Too bad, it was a pretty cool place.
Only been there once to see Slacktone. Tried a lot of the drinks (including a Volcano bowl by myself, becasue no one wanted to drink that thing), very bad, but had to do it to show support for the practice of serving tropical drinks in Chinese restaurants...

Damn that is a crying shame.
Not that I'm a big Chinese food fan. But I saw about 30 or more surf shows there from 2000 till the Slacktone show Ran Mentioned
just a few months back.
Funny I was just talking to somebody about them playing there soon.
Guess that wont happen now.

HI to everyone that supported the Bamboo Terrace....This is a message from the crazy girl that worked behind the bar. Love and kisses, I will miss you all. And not that it can ever be replaced, Li's on Adams and Magnolia is a great place for a volcanoe and good chinese. They have orginal vinyl seats, and don't speak any english. Bamboo Terrace was good to me, and I will remember it always....Michelle
