We do not have a shuttle from the pier however there are several drivers outside the pier that can provide transportation to our restaurant.
Hi, I just read your review on Bamboo Blu...I've been trying to contact the management but so far did not get a response. I wanted to ask you how big was your wedding? Do you think they accommodate a party of 65-70 people with special decorations, private Dj, open bar, etc.??? Thank you in advance for responding, S.
