At the Bonham Exchange, we strive to not only provide a safe venue for music and dancing but to change with the times. We hope to expose people to new ideas and to maintain a space where ALL individuals can get along and enjoy each other's company, regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, age, or sexual orientation.
We invite you to come out, be whoever you want to be, and have a great time without fear of criticism. This is the legacy of the Bonham Exchange, as envisioned by Hap Veltman.
