Watching the sunset at Bar Belmont is about to get even better.
So says Bunkhouse Management, an Austin-based hotel management and ownership company that recently partnered with the Belmont Hotel. Other Bunkhouse properties are boutique hotels in Austin — Hotel San Jose and Hotel Saint Cecilia.
Kevin Osterhaus, Bunkhouse vice president of operations, says his company approached the Belmont asking to work with its team to enhance their offerings and grow their business, and Bunkhouse employees have been in Dallas since July putting together a conceptual plan to evaluate the hotel's services and amenities. "Obviously, the Belmont is a wonderful staple of that community," says Osterhaus, a former Dallas resident. "We love what Belmont owners have done to make it part of the Oak Cliff community."
The goal, he says, is to improve on what is already there, starting with the bar.
