You asked, the Neighbor’s answered!
This page will be updated as questions are commonly asked.
Where will this be?
Downtown Santa Cruz! A specific location has not been signed for just yet, due to funding.
When will it open?
The new goal is early 2022. There are a ton of pop up events that you are welcome to attend!
Who is behind this?
The owner and founder of the Neighbor’s is Frankie. Feel free to read their bio!
Are you hiring?
The hiring process has not started yet. Please sign up for email updates to be the first to know when it does begin!
How can I get involved?
The latest fundraising campaign has a ton of ways to get involved! Please see this page for details.
Where does the fundraiser money go?
The money being raised will be spent on start up costs such as rent, renovations, and acquiring equipment and inventory. Less than 5% goes towards pop-up events and advertising. None of it is being used for salaries or wages – this really is a labor of love.
What happens if you don’t get the venue mentioned in the Fall Campaign?
We’ll search for another place! Regardless of where the pub ends up, we’ll need to make improvements for accessibility and functionality purposes. The funds raised will still go towards these improvements.
What other funding options are you looking into?
Primarily loans and grants. If you know of any grants, please tell us!
