From Coconut Club:

“Hey friends, Chef Adam and Emily here with some unfortunate news.

Due to circumstances outside of our control, this Sunday, October 18th will be our last service until further notice. Our plans are to close for fall and winter, with reopening plans for 2021. We hope this isn’t goodbye forever and we can come back to vacation with you soon.

This past year, we have fought long and hard to stay positive, innovative, and keep the good vibes going for you all. Coconut Club has always been more than just our cool concept, it’s our community. We would be nothing without our team, our guests, our Coconut Club Crew. We want to give a huge thank you to everyone past and present who has helped us along the way. The memories of you all in this place will live on long after this is all over.

That being said, let’s make this last week a good one. Come get your cocktails and bites to go, or on the patio. We will also have a market of merchandise, wine & beer so don’t miss out on that either.

Thursday 5:00pm-9:30pm
Friday – Saturday 5:00pm-10:00pm
& Sunday 12:00-5:00pm

Stop by and support if you can, we’d love to see you. If you’d like to support our team, we have set up a GoFundMe to give you the opportunity to say thank you. 100% of donations will go to staff directly. Thank you all for your patronage over the 1.5 years – we couldn’t have done it without all of you. We can’t wait to come back and give you all that needed vacation from the world.

With love and gratitude,
Adam, Emily & the Coconut Club team”
