“Super Fun if You Love Dancing”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

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 Truth”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

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 they have.

There is a $5 cover, but well drinks are under $3 with tip. Can't beat that.

Highly recommended.

“Standard College Club with an Attitude”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

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 place is the staff. They often come across as arogant; the whole place comes across as arogant, not my type, but maybe yours. I know they have a tough job but their attitude can make Thursday night just plain unpleasant.

Pros: cheap drinks, plenty of people dancing, and an entertaining albeit cocky piano bar

Cons: may wait 10 minutes for a drink, unrelaxed environment, and self-serving staff
