New eatery opens

12 November 2018 | Business

Excitement is running high following the opening of the revamped Puku bar and restaurant at the pool area of the Windhoek Country Club.

Food and beverage manager Stefan Kotze said that the name was derived from the Puku, a medium-sized antelope found in the wet grasslands of northern Namibia, Tanzania, Zimbab-we 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 opening followed a revamp of the restaurant and bar has and the WCCR is proud of the décor and special touches, as this venue has been enhanced by local Namibians, 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 Namibians, while at the same time generate an income for the hotel. We also wanted to support fellow Namibians in these tough times with this venture and therefore contracted Namibian companies only for the various items needed,” Kotze said.

The family-friendly restaurant and bar will enchant guests with a 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.
