Clarion to be home to restaurant, live music club

March 12, 2006

The Clarion Hotel & Conference Center Antietam Creek, a 210-room hotel in Hagerstown, soon will be home to a popular East Coast restaurant and a live music nightclub spotlighting nationally known country acts.

Bamboo Bernie's, a sports eatery specializing in steaks, sandwiches and salads, is expected to open in early May.

A nightclub operation, Cancun Cantina West, is expected to stage its grand opening in early April. The original Cancun Cantina, a nationally known nightclub in Baltimore, has drawn top country music acts ranging from Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney to Little Big Town, Confederate Railroad and David Allan Coe.

"We plan to bring the same high-caliber country acts to Hagerstown that we do in Baltimore," Paul Janowiak, co-owner and vice president of Cancun Cantina West Inc., said in a prepared release.

Rhode Island-based Magna Hospitality Group LC, which manages the Clarion Antietam, is overseeing construction of the new restaurant and nightclub. A liquor license has already been approved.

Bamboo Bernies will feature entrees such as a 16-ounce New York strip steak, fried shrimp, and Maryland crab cakes along with salads, appetizers, sandwiches, wraps, quesadillas, burgers, and specialty beverages.

Cancun Cantina West will feature a large stage with state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems. Country music fans will have a chance to hear live music every Friday and Saturday night, as well as special shows on other dates featuring nationally known acts.

Country line dance lessons will be offered.
