Yost Theater is located at 307 N Spurgeon St
9:30 PM – 2 AM on Thurs, 10 PM – 2 AM Fri
Yost Theater, a well known historic landmark in Downtown Santa Ana, Calif., has been one of the most influential venues in California since 1912. Having served as a theater during the vaudeville movement, the Yost Theater brought in some of the most popular entertainers during that time period.
Housed in a vintage movie house, the Yost Theater is looking to compete with big OC music venues such as Disney’s House of Blues. Gorgeously appointed with massive plush drapes, ornate lanterns, blue ceiling tiles and a state of the art sound system, there might be some nervous grumbling in the House of Mouse. Co-operated by former Koo’s Cafe owner Dennis Lluy, The Yost serves a large selection of draft beers and features a full bar — perfect for getting loose in front of the massive stage. Yost Theatre currently features club nights every Thursday and Friday.
