Dear Friends and Patrons of AMP Sports Lounge and The Roost Lounge:

The decision has been made by the City Counsel of Cathedral City to cancel this year’s Cathedral City LGBT Days due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus concerns. We know that this is disappointing news but we also understand that this is the right thing to do for Cathedral City.

In addition, the 2nd Annual LGBT Days Block Party 2020 that we planned for the last weekend of March in the back parking lot are being postponed until a later date. The teams at AMP and The Roost worked tirelessly to produce an over-the-top event with big name headliners, Kristine W and Debby Holiday, and the most talented local performers. It is our hope to hold the event in the near future. Stay tuned for further announcements regarding the rescheduled dates. All current events scheduled inside The Roost and AMP will go forward as planned.

We are humbled and very grateful for our patrons at The Roost Lounge and AMP Sports Lounge. The health and well-being of our community and our patrons will always be a high priority! We pride ourselves on maintaining clean environments at AMP and The Roost Lounge. We have added additional hand sanitizer stations for your convenience, comfort and well-being and we have established deeper cleaning protocols at the bars to ensure that AMP and The Roost remain healthy environments for our patrons to gather and enjoy themselves. We hope to see you all, happy and healthy, soon.

Antonio Lopez-Cochran, Jeff McDonald, Paul Lopez-Cochran, Charles Thomas and Michael Cossu
