Cactus Club is committed to creating a welcome and inclusive environment. Predatory behavior is not tolerated. All gender expressions are welcomed and affirmed.
It is with a heavy heart that Cactus Club is closing temporarily for the safety of our staff, friends and extended communities. We will continue to closely monitor recommendations from health authorities as we assess our social responsibility. It’s an extremely difficult decision to make, especially with the recent transition of new ownership. Thank you for your continual support and inspiration 🌸 In the upcoming week we hope to launch a new artist series merch line and come up with other creative ways to keep everything afloat.
Take care of yourselves and one another xo cc
With Kelsey becoming the new owner of the space as of February 2020, it’s heartbreaking to see Cactus shut it’s doors so abruptly. Putting our operations on hold is a huge financial hit for our venue, touring and local artists, employees and partnering communities. If you are able to, please consider donating to the Cactus Club and Employee Relief Fund. Every little bit helps.
