The California Inn, Luton | Gay Venue

About Us

The California Inn, known affectionately as “the Cali”, has established itself as the premier venue at the heart of Luton’s gay scene for over 10 years. Always warm and welcoming, we have a strong following with our LGBT customers and also the wider community in Luton.

Owner Tina Haynes took over the California Inn on July 4, 2016 from previous owner Gerry Sexton, who has worked hard to make the California Inn the success that it is. With a steady stream of regulars and legendary cabaret acts, look no further if you’re up for a good time.
The team behind the bar welcome all customers in the same friendly way the Cali has built its reputation on.

Please do come and visit us, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

Owner – Tina Haynes

Tina, 58, has been a fully transitioned woman for over 25 years. She is a Luton-based entrepeneur with a wealth of experience running businesses in property management, leisure, entertainment and health & beauty treatment.
The project of The Cali bar has been a dream concept of Tina’s. Truly inclusive, it brings together the old with the new.
