Stunning the Cascade community, Hooters restaurant has moved into the space formerly occupied by Cascade Lanes Casino and Bowling. Located minutes from Highway 167, and Interstate 405, residents of Renton, Kent, Auburn, and Seattle now have a new play arena. Hooters has been brought in as the anchor, and designed to rejuvenate new life in to this previously declining shopping center. This expansive restaurant occupies roughly 29,000 square feet. According to Mike Strong, General Manager of the new Hooters in Renton, careful thought has been put in to designing this new location to create “the ultimate Hooters fun center.” Parking is free, and plentiful but can become crowded at varied times.
With the Hooters bold, orange sign hoisted high upon the building top, passerbys traveling north and southbound on 116th Avenue SE can easily see this business summoning them. If not, the Hooters van parked in the lot displaying beautiful, smiling ladies on its side, wearing their colorful Hooters gear is a sure fire sign some excitement has arrived in the neighborhood. Indoors orange and white decor has been utilized throughout the facility.The vibrant orange color is commonly recognized as a signature color for this restaurant chain. Hooters girls can be found roaming throughout the restaurant serving clientele. During a Hooters shift an average of 12-20 girls are working. Reognizable is the familiar Hooter’s outfit: orange tank tops, white tank tops, short or long sleeve t-shirts and the famous orange Hooters shorts. The minimum age to become a Hooter’s girl is 18.
In an unusual and bold move, this Hooters facility has added a feature that the restaurant has never offered before. The addition of a bowling alley, in an attempt to become recognized as a “friendly family destination,” according to Mike Strong. This location is the first in the nation designed this way. The refurbished 24 lane bowling alley is bustling with new found energy. However, the lanes do not feature the new system layout found in many bowling alleys. If you bowl with others that need bumpers (ex. those bowling with their children,) you have to make a choice. You must choose to have the bumpers up the entire time, or down completely, because the system cannot inter-change. If you need to alternate, then two lanes will need to be paid for and utilized. A comfortable seating area is available next to each bowling lane, and vistors can have menus, as well as food selections delivered to their tables. Over fifty 42″ LCD flat panel televisions are hung throughout the bowling alley.
The restaurant seats 250 people, and serves American fare food: the famous Hooter’s chicken wings, sandwiches, burgers, ribs…Meals average $7.00-$15.00. The restaurant also offers a children’s menu with meals averaging $4.00.
A 4,000 square foot casino, featuring 15 table games is located near the restaurant. Prominent casino games featured include: BlackJack, Pai Gow, Texas Hold’em, 4-Card Poker, Spanish 21… Jackpots offered range from $1,000-$4,000. Domestic bottle and draft beers average $2.75 and during Happy Hour are available for $2.25.
An arcade which includes video games is located on the southern side away from the lounge and casino. A nice feature is children receive actual paper tickets from the games dependant on scores, and these can be turned in for prizes. A party room for adults and children can be found near this entrance.
Bowling leagues have been established, and bowling tournaments are planned for this location as well.
