Lodge Facilities

Santa Cruz Elks Lodge

Santa Cruz Elks Lodge #824 is located near the Ocean Street off-ramp from Highway 17, just minutes from downtown Santa Cruz. The lodge facility, on a hill above Santa Cruz, offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of downtown, while also being centrally located. Our meetings are the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 7:30 PM. Dinner is at 6:00 PM every Thursday. We honor Birthday/Buddy Nights the first Thursday of each Month.

Come visit us sometime!

Dining Room

The lodge dining room is a spacious and versatile room, well-appointed for a variety of special events, including catered weddings, parties, meetings and other functions. Fully-carpeted, with an area parquet dance floor, banked large windows overlooking the pool area, and a second bar area.
