In Salt Lake City, contemporary elegance meets casual comfort

Located in Kimpton Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City ● 801.363.5454

A sizzling restaurant in downtown SLC

Kimpton Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City’s savvy service and hip sophistication carry over into bustling Bambara, our beloved dining destination that consistently delivers some of the city’s most outstanding fare. The restaurant draws both hotel guests and loyal locals looking to celebrate special occasions with friends and family or to savor an intimate dinner for two (for example, those stopping in for a pre-theater dinner or post-concert nightcap). The centrally-located restaurant, housed in a historic bank lobby with grand arched windows, features delectable New American fare by Executive Chef Nathan Powers; think pan-roasted and grilled meats plus lovingly prepared seafood and game. Diners enjoy the restaurant’s sense of contemporary elegance that still keeps the approach—like all things Kimpton—casual and fun.
