With its sleek decor of black leather seats, graphic black prints on white walls, gilded mirrors, and a wall of wine illuminated by cobalt lighting, it’s easy to think The Cosmopolitan Bistro is a chic lounge in the city, not an intimate bistro in the Ozarks. That’s exactly the type of feeling founder Liezl Stevenson-Perme was going for when she opened eatery in April 2011, and it has been so successful that it counts music producer and singer Tony Orlando as one if its patrons.
But the decor isn’t the only appealing thing about The Cosmopolitan Bistro. Oversize white plates arrive at tables topped with artfully arranged entrees of upscale American cuisine, such as new york strip steaks, grilled salmon smothered in rosemary-butter-cream sauce, and seared ahi tuna. On certain nights of the week, the bistro comes to life with the sounds of live jazz music, DJ-spun tracks, or auto-tuned baby laughs.
Upon moving to Branson in the early 1990s, Don and Lawanna Stuck spent their leisure time hunting, fishing, and paddling the White River’s waterways. Drawing upon their intimate knowledge of Branson’s waterways, they opened White River Kayaking & Outdoors on July 4, 2012. Equipped with rental paddles and life jackets, their customers can navigate standard kayaks, tandem kayaks, or fishing kayaks along Lake Taneycomo, Table Rock Lake, or Bull Shoals Lake while marveling at the surrounding Ozark Mountains. Staffers drop guests off at several launch locations on each lake, and pick guests up at the conclusion of their float. White River Kayaking & Outdoors also rents out bicycles, which visitors can take around Branson’s parks and trails or pedal across the lake to combine two sports during a triathlon.
In addition to rifle and pistol ranges, the facility has several areas for clay shooting, including sporting clays, trap, skeet, wobble trap, and five-stand. This range is the site of the 2013 Missouri State Sporting Clays Championship.
Clients can rent shotguns or purchase new and used handguns and long guns.
The staff at Ozark Shooters Sports Complex turns clay shooting into a special occasion. It hosts regular events, including couples' nights, ladies' nights, and a monthly cowboy-themed shoot. The surrounding woods creates an ideal setting for various types of clay shooting, and the furnished clubhouse gives visitors a place to relax. Ozark's experienced instructors also teach shotgun and handgun classes for individuals and groups.
The waterways between northern Arkansas and southwest Missouri are swirling with life and activity. Trout rush through clear rivers, midges dance on the surface, and fishermen Jeremy Hunt scans the water as he teaches his guests how to reel in trophy fish. Jeremy and his team of guides have spent more than 12 years fishing in the Ozarks and feel at home on the river system. They provide knowledge of the water with experienced anglers and beginners alike. During lessons, the staff at Flys and Guides places an emphasis on the art of casting and practice catch-and-release techniques to keep the fish population steady and popularity ratings high among the underwater community. Mr. Hunt and his guests cast lines day and night, and they fish year round provided the temperature doesn't grow too cold.
