The piano bar is really cool. You have to wait in line when you get there to get into the piano bar but it's worth it. Drinks are cheap but there is a cover charge. Buy the cactus cup to make drinks even cheaper.

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!

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.
