For as long as I can remember, Cactus Club Cafe was at the corner of No 3 and Lansdowne Rd, right across from Lansdowne Centre. Back then, they were known for their eclectic mix of artwork, including quirky items like cow displays, a giant moose head, and a rabbit in a hat painting.
This year, in celebrating their 25th year in Richmond, Cactus Club Cafe has closed down their old Lansdowne location to open a stunning new 7,000 square feet restaurant at Richmond Centre just down the street.
This new restaurant will be patio-season all year long, with a heated enclosed patio complete with a retractable roof, sliding glass walls, and cozy booth seating. The beautiful (and real!) cedar wood accents and LOTS of green will make you feel right at home in the outdoors.
Inside will be a gorgeous and spacious lounge with a gentle ambient golden glow, whether for casual after-work drinks with colleagues, or a special night out with your partner.
In true giving spirit, just in time for the holidays, the artwork at the former Lansdowne location was auctioned off by the Cactus Club Cafe team to raise $5,000 for the Richmond Food Bank.
Today, Cactus Club Cafe has one of the largest collections of original Andy Warhol + Jean-Michel Basquiat screen prints.
As the holiday season approaches, Cactus Club Cafe is also launching two new winter cocktails.
The Whiskey Ginger Smash
A perfect medley of whiskey, lemon, ginger, and rosemary – this seasonal sipper is a great way to liven up the winter blues.
The Late Harvest Daiquiri
For lovers of the summer berry daiquiris at Cactus Club Cafe, this cocktail is the perfect transition to the winter season, with white rum, lime juice, blackberries, Saskatoon berries, cassis, and elderflower.
These two cocktails are only available for a limited time, so try them at the new Cactus Club Cafe soon before it’s too late!
