Located in the 1920s-era Paradise Building, the Bamboo Room has hosted numerous musical acts since 1999. Although the establishment was initially focused on blues, its musical identity has expanded to encompass much more since its birth. However, it still retains much of its island vibe, complete with leopard-skin stairs and outdoor patio. Visitors to West Palm find something for everyone at the Bamboo Room.
There is a lot of history at this nightclub, as it has a reputation for opening and reopening under different owners and identities. However, what remains the same is its secure place in West Palm’s entertainment scene, as the club seems to always be a hot-spot for locals and tourists alike despite its constant change. Hands-down one of its top attractions is its jazz and blues gigs, so be sure to come if you happen to be in town.
There is a massive dance floor to accompany the spacious stage and awesome sound. The club is equipped with a bar on opposite sides of room with tables and seating. Unlike many clubs, the Bamboo Room has no lack of seating. It has both indoor and outdoor options for people who want to have a drink—and the hearing—to talk.
The bands that play at the Bamboo Room always have a great reputation with audiences, interacting with guests in a cool, intimate setup. Past events have included Latin dance socials, Karaoke Thursdays, Reggae Night, and even a Woodstock Anniversary party.
The club is open five night a week, Monday through Saturday, and is open until 2 A.M. It is a hotbed for local talent, but also includes some karaoke, comedy shows and movie nights. Crowds seem to gather nightly to take part in some of the best music West Palm has to offer.
