If you come to Guerneville, you need to know that the town has a large gay/lesbian community. That doesn't mean that heterosexuals are not welcome! My wife and I have lived in Guerneville for over 7 years now, we are a male female couple, and...More

Definitely a fun spot, especially on the weekends. Get their specialty big mug cocktails. Long Island, Tokyo Tea and I think a root beer one! The clientele here are mostly gay, and all gay friendly.

The review, "If it was a gay bar, it's not now.", is for the Bull Pen which the reviewer for some reason confused as the Rainbow Cattle Company.
