Ever heard of Hooters? Who hasn’t, right? It’s a popular American restaurant chain known for its rather ‘sexist’ (depends on how you interpret it) company image. Most of the restaurant chain’s draw revolves around the “All-American cheerleader, surfer, girl-next-door” stereotype. You would think that their main draw would be some signature food, right, because of the fact that they’re a restaurant chain? But no… Hooters is, and will always be known as, “that restaurant with sexy waitresses with nice…hooters.”
For Hooters fans in the Clearwater Beach area, they can finally enjoy Hooters’ offering (both eye-candy and actual food) starting Monday, June 4th, 2012. The new Clearwater Beach branch is located at the Mandalay Business District (381 Mandalay Ave.) near Pier 60. The 2-story restaurant has an expansive patio on the 2nd floor with breathtaking views of Clearwater Beach. Of course, even if it’s a new location, the new branch of Hooters will still maintain its “delightfully tacky, yet unrefined” atmosphere. Now people in Clearwater Beach finally have a perfect place to go to for casual dining.
The Hooters people behind this branch apparently thought this thing through. They’re not just “branching out” in Clearwater Beach for the sake of having a branch here. As we all know, Clearwater Beach has beautiful sunsets, so of course Hooters is going to offer their diners a way to enjoy those sunsets…”with them.” Their new Clearwater Beach branch will have a rooftop division called “The Lookout.” A sunset party will be held there every night (yes, you read that right – every night).
The Clearwater Beach branch will be open from Mondays through Sundays for lunch and dinner. Obviously, on Friday and Saturday nights, the restaurant will be open until late in the evening. Hooters is one of those restaurants where you don’t really have to worry about what to wear when you do decide to dine there. The restaurant is as casual a restaurant as can be. Even the Hooters people themselves are looking forward to seeing diners in their “flip flops and sunglasses.” Overwhelmed with work? Wind down at Hooters’ new Clearwater Beach branch and gawk at the pretty…scenery. You know, because it’s in Clearwater Beach and this place is popular for the lovely sunsets?
