Revellers in the city welcomed the reopening last Wednesday of Safari Bar and Grill, saying the development would revolutionise Bulawayo’s nightlife.
The new management have renovated the place situated at opposite Rainbow Hotel at corner 10th Avenue and Josiah Tongogara Street. The bar now has new seats and tables where people can enjoy their meals and drinks. There is a bar as well.
The popular spot, which was closed for almost two months, is now under new management of Angela Mpofu Lion and Katherine Sithole.
“We thank everyone who came and showed support. We did not expect such a show. People came to have their lunch and breakfast two days before we officially launched, which is a sign that we have done a good job and we thank everyone,” Lion said.
Sithole added: “We hope that the mature and old will have fun and do business in a calm environment without too much noise. It is not a place where you will find people overcrowded and loud music, and it is just a place to chill out.”
Bulawayo businessman Japhet Mpofu, the father of Angela Mpofu Lion, was the guest of honour.
“I congratulate these two who have decided to venture into the cut-throat world of business and entertainment. It is now up to us to maintain the place that these two have upgraded for us,” he said.
“I urge the two to value customers because they have opened this business for the people. The minute they cease to value customers they will lose business,” Mpofu added.
Stanley Joseph, one of the revellers, commended the lighting and also the quality of the service.
