I've been going to the Rainbow Cattle Company on Main Street in 'downtown' Guerneville since they first opened, years and years ago. I've ALWAYS had a good time! Their bartender's memory's are faultless: after serving you once or twice, they'll remember your favorite drink every other time they see you. Speaking as a straight, married woman, I had the honor... More

This is a regular of ours in Guerneville. Still bemused by their pricing, when and what happy hour is? They don't take credit cards which is annoying in 2015!

The "Rainbow" has been around for decades, and is a gay-owned and gay-oriented bar, who welcomes everyone! Wonderful with the community, as they provide a Give-Back Tuesday every week of the year for local non-profits to fundraise. Also a Humpback Wednesday in the winter for a theme-oriented community potluck, with prizes for the winning dishes. Everyone knows the Rainbow!

Rainbow Cattle Company is now my favorite bar anywhere in the world! The bartenders were tons of fun and the locals were amazing. We loved the 'Give Back Tuesday' night! Had a blast! Going to be the first place we stop next time we get to Guerneville!

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. Bull Pen Page can be found below. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g32465-d139179-Reviews-Bull_Pen-Guerneville_Sonoma_County_California.html The Rainbow Cattle company does not have live music. They have DJ's on the weekends. The Bull Pen has live bands 3-5 nights a... More

I was just there in June visiting friends. I'm a straight woman and have pretty good gaydar and....nope. The only thing gay about this place is the name. Band, pool table, beer, good drinks - I'd go again and recommend it to anyone, straight, gay, or otherwise.

I've been going to Guernville for my vacation spot over 10 years and I always make the Rainbow Cattle Company my first stop. It's like the welcome mat to Guernville. I'm glad that after all this time, it still feels like an old friend! Thanks

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 we have never been made to feel like outsiders at this or any other bar... More
