Puku bar and restaurant brings a new flair to the Windhoek Country Club
The Windhoek Country Club Resort and Casino (WCCR) this week opened the new Puku bar and restaurant at the pool area of its premises.
Food and Beverage Manager Stefan Kotze, explained that the name of the restaurant and bar has been derived from the Puku animal, a medium-sized antelope found in the wet grasslands of northern Namibia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Nearly one-third of all Puku are found in protected areas, zoos and national parks due to their diminishing habitat.
“We chose this name as it is one of Namibia’s lesser known endangered species and we hope that this will raise awareness amongst Namibians. It is also a fun name and easy to remember.”
The restaurant and bar has been revamped and the Country Club is extremely proud of the décor and special touches, as this venue has been enhanced by locals, who supplied the furniture as well as the handmade pottery such as the ceramic plates, tablecloths, cushions and wall decor.
“In these harsh economic times we were looking for new and exciting revenue streams and opening Puku to the public has ensured that we can spoil our clients, while at the same time generating an extra income for the hotel. We also wanted to support locals in these tough times with this venture and therefore contracted Namibian companies only for the various items needed,” Stefan added.
Stefan said the new vicinity is open to the public and is a family friendly restaurant and bar which will enchant the clients with great food menu, ranging from sosaties to Bratwurst, plankie steaks, kapana steaks and chicken wings at affordable prices.”
“The drinks menu also offers a great variety and includes beer, wines, soft drinks, cocktails, milkshakes and more – all at affordable prices,” concluded Stefan.
