Historic Venues

  • The Beach Club

    Address: 2020 NE 22nd St, Lincoln City, OR 97367
    Capacity: 300
    Built in the 1950’s, the Beach Club was originally home to the Elks Club. This fraternal organization’s lodge served as a staple of the community. It was a home to banquets, weddings, and Lincoln City’s grandest charity balls. The lodge boasted the city’s first racquetball courts, a spa, and the largest dance floor in the county. The Elks Lodge closed in 2014, and In 2015, it risked being torn down.
    The Beach Club is now breathing new life into The Ocean Lake Elks Lodge, lovingly restoring the building to better than original condition. The Lodge’s original dance floor will serve as home to top comedians during Undertow Comedy Festival.

  • The Cultural Center

    Address: 540 NE Hwy 101, Lincoln City, OR 97367
    Capacity: 200
    Built in 1927, The Cultural Center began as Delake School. Mr. Hostetler, an early settler, donated about two acres of land for the school. In the late 1920s Henry Hostetler saw the need to construct an elementary school large enough for all the grade school students in the area to attend. The new brick building was designed by Portland architect Charles B. Martin.
    The building now houses The Cultural Center and the Lincoln City Visitor Center. The former gymnasium has been converted into a fully equipped auditorium that will host major performers in the Undertow Comedy Festival.

  • The Eventuary

    Address: The Eventuary Event Center 560 SW Fleet Ave. Lincoln City, OR 97367
    Capacity: 50
    Built in 1917, this grand old building was originally the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hallock. In 1935 the Hallocks added about 3,000 square feet (including the upstairs, and basement) to open Lincoln City’s first hospital. The hospital had two wards, containing two and three beds respectively, as well as two private rooms. In 1938, Mr. Bateman purchased the building to open a mortuary. This remained the Eventuary’s main use until 2010, where the building sat vacant
    Now reborn as an event center, and christened “The Eventuary,” this unique space will be home to the first comedy festival on the Oregon Coast.
