History Edit

The Bamboo Lounge was a protection racket owned by Sonny Bunz, an associate of the Lucchese crime family. It was a common hangout for made men under Capo Paul Cicero and Tuddy Cicero, including Henry Hill, Anthony Stabile, Tommy DeVito, and Jimmy Conway. Bunz became a partner of Cicero following an incident in which DeVito injured Bunz by smashing his forehead with a glass, so any reports of trouble with Tommy, the Police, or Union Bosses went to Cicero. However, Cicero was paid every week, even if Bunz's racket was hit with lightning or it set fire. Soon, it could not cash a bill from the bank or buy a case of booze, so it was burnt down by Henry Hill and Tommy DeVito.
