I used to drink at this location when it was known as The Stork Club...It was mostly Bikers, Red Necks and a few Hippies. I was Gay then, but, trying to blend in. Next thing I knew, The Rainbow Cattle Company I knew and loved in San Francisco was opening in Guerneville. FABULOUS!!! I was there every night for a... More

The best and on of the oldest existing Gay bars in Sanoma county. A great place to hang with friends, meet NEW friends, and just enjoy the atmosphere. Locals and tourists alike are here all year round!!

The 'Bo, as we locals call it, is delightful, unpretentious, welcoming and comfortable no matter who you are. Yes in the 'old days' it was a refuge and sanctuary for the weary and persecuted, but now Guerneville has morphed into one of the most integrated, seamless and un-judgemental towns west of the Allegheny.

Fun bar, friendly service, and a very eclectic mix of customer (gay, straight, young and old!). We were there over a busy weekend (Lazy Bear) and it was packed! I imagine it's a little quieter at other times!

Great bar that welcomes everyone equally. We had a lovely afternoon sipping drinks, watching bits of random movies and reading the hysterical stickers plastered all over the bar. Very relaxed, jovial atmosphere. Bartender was great. Love!!

Always warm, welcoming and cheery, the Rainbow was for years, a "gay" bar, but so many non-gays and people with no preference found themselves enjoying it, it has become fully integrated and everyone accepts everyone.

This is a relaxing and friendly bar. While it caters to the homosexual crowd (they TVs were playing snipets of musicals), they are very friendly, welcoming, and make great drinks. The pool table is good and the ambiance festive.

Friendly gay bar but still a fun place to hang out!!! Bartender, Sean, very friendly as we're all the patrons. Even though we were straight...everyone, especially the bartender, made this such a fun place to hangout. We even went back during our stay. They also have pool tables there!

It's guerneville and this is a gay bar. The bar tender was friendly and attentive. They have a very good beer selection. Good music on the jukebox. A few pool tables. You can smell the cigarette smoke coming in from out back.
