One of the newest businesses in Yakima is an excellent ‘hangout’ called The Chainsaw Cat. It started getting noticed in April of 2023 when the unusual name had people scratching their heads about what the new business would be.

Pet salon? Cat fight club? Video arcade? Bar? After all the hard work put into the location at 509 West Yakima Ave by Abiel Hoff and Traci Burnes, the place became one of the most remarkable and diverse venues in the valley.

With the spot mainly used for concerts, sporting one of the largest stages in the Yakima Valley, The Chainsaw Cat has been home to many events. Dance shows, Vendor Fairs, open mic, comedy gigs, and Youth Game Nights!
