Welcome to Sanctuary...


This is Sanctuary...with the Huntridge Theatre Tower Come inside...coming soon! Originally built in the 1950's as the Huntridge Post Office then occupied by the Unity Church of The Desert, SANCTUARY was located around the corner from the historic Huntridge Theatre.

From its April 1999 sold-out opening night "Evening with Jello Biafra", SANCTUARY featured diverse artists from blues guitarist Chris Whitely, reggae artist Pato Banton and heavy alternative rockers Weezer, to local favourites Connie Emmerson & Shindog, God Among Men and comic Jo Coy. The venue has also hosted Japanese jazz-rock guitarist Char, and LDS favourites “Colors” and talent recitals for Bishop Gorman High School.

In July 1999, 3 months after opening, SANCTUARY was named in Rolling Stone magazine as "Best Place in Las Vegas to See Live Music".
In March of 2001, in the Las Vegas Review-Journal's "Best of Las Vegas" poll, SANCTUARY was named as the "Best Place to Go If You're Under 21".

At one time, this site contained a Calendar of Events as well as Specs and Booking Information for the Club as it was also used as a meeting hall, and catering facility.

Due to a changing climate in the music business, and competition from newer venues such as the House of Blues, in April of 2001, Sanctuary closed its doors and Las Vegas lost yet another Under 21 venue...but the memories will last.
