Birdcage Lounge, the latest addition to Orange County’s vibrant nightlife scene, has officially opened its doors. Nestled next to the renowned STRUT Bar & Club, Birdcage Lounge promises an unforgettable experience for the LGBTQ+ community and allies alike.

At Birdcage Lounge, patrons can expect an array of Instagram-worthy cocktails served with a unique twist - think inflatable flamingos and a burst of color in every glass. As the only gay-owned and operated nightlife venues in Orange County, Birdcage Lounge proudly stands as a beacon of inclusivity and diversity in the heart of Southern California.

Behind this groundbreaking concept is Luke Nero, the visionary owner and creative director of STRUT club. With a passion for pushing boundaries and creating spaces that celebrate queer culture, Nero’s latest venture is set to redefine Orange County’s nightlife scene. As a recent addition to the board of OC PRIDE, Nero is committed to shaking up the status quo in what was once a conservative county, one fabulous venue at a time.

Step inside Birdcage Lounge and be transported to a world inspired by the vibrant energy of 90s Miami. From neon lights to giant pink palm trees, every corner of this chic and sophisticated cocktail lounge is designed to evoke a sense of nostalgia and excitement. Plus, don’t miss the outdoor patio mirror room installation, adding a mesmerizing and visually stunning element to the Birdcage Lounge experience. Whether you’re sipping on a signature cocktail or capturing the perfect photo moment, Birdcage Lounge promises an experience like no other.

Join us as we celebrate the grand opening of Birdcage Lounge - where every night is a celebration of love, acceptance, and the vibrant spirit of the LGBTQ+ community.
