The piano bar is the best thing here

Thursday nights are the best nights to go if you are wanting a crowd.Cheap prices. The piano bar is the best part about the cactus and usual the only reason we go!

I've been at the Cactus many times and always on Thursdays, as most students go there. The piano bar by Bruce is very cool even if you're an European that doesn't know anything about country music, and at about midnight most people move to the dance floor area. During the summer the place is a hit or miss, while during... More

Piano bar is the main reason to go. There is also a big dance area, and about 3-6 pool tables. $5 to get in and they have the lowest prices on drinks in town.

The first couple times I went to the Cactus it was exciting, but it's the same thing every time...the music is a hit or miss but most of the time it's the same thing, every week! I usually never wait too long I get a drink, but then again tips are a nice way to make sure you do to... More

Listen up peeps, if you don't like loud club music and dancing this ain't your joint. However! If you do, you'll love this place! I went with a big group of people and we had a BLAST! I never had to wait for a drink that long, 5-7 minutes tops and that place was PACKED!

The picture is not the Neon Cactus. The piano bar is the reason to come here. Bruce Barker is amazing. The place is very big but it looks like it is almost empty. Everyone is in the Piano Bar Room. Howell at the Moon is a joke. I bring friends from Indianapolis and they are amazed about how much fun... More

The Neon Cactus is a popular college-aged dance club with a piano 'lounge.' On Thursday nights, the busiest night, the drinks are cheap and the place is crowded. You will find many types of people: Jersey Shorers, fratrority types, wallflowers, and sadly, more loose girls and hungry guys than spring break at panama city... The problem I have with this...
