Welcome to the Neighbor’s

A LGBTQ+ centric, socially responsible restaurant and community space.

Coming soon to Santa Cruz, California.

LGBTQ+ Centric

The Neighbor’s is more than a queer bar. With a menu of cafe beverages and food, we give the LGBTQ+ community a better, more inclusive space.

Beyond creating a physical space for LGBTQ+ people to mix and mingle, the Neighbors will create community through events of many types — from classes, drag competitions, to live entertainment. 

Open Late Night

The Neighbor’s will be open from 3pm to 3am. This offers the more crepuscular and nocturnal members of our community a place to eat, gather, work, and play.

From open to 8pm, well-behaved and leashed dogs and cats will be welcome on the patio. They will enjoy specialty treats and beverages alongside their well-behaved handlers. (These set hours will ensure the safety of our furbabies, as live performances may begin at 9pm).

Socially Responsible

The Neighbor’s is a company you’ll feel good supporting. A portion of the annual profits will go towards conservation work, both locally and globally. Another portion of the profits will be reinvested in the local LGBTQ+, POC, and other marginalized communities. This may be through direct donations, collaborative fundraisers, or community events held at the Neighbor’s.

Join the community

To make this dream happen, we need community support.

We invite you to attend the events, subscribe to our mailing list,
and contribute to the Start Up Fund.
