Welcome to the Rainbow Cattle Company, everyone’s good time saloon, located on Main Street, Guerneville, California, at the Russian River.
The Rainbow started back in 1979 when a man named Hans opened this Main Street Bar in the middle of downtown. Hans, who owned many bars in San Francisco, wanted The Rainbow to serve the new gay tourists who were coming to the Redwood Forest to relax and party. Maybe it was the mixing of Hans' personal touch with the beautiful Sonoma County countryside and the unstoppable Russian River Bohmeian Spirit - but a legend was born!
Since it opened its doors in 1979, The Rainbow has been a Northern California party destination - serving up endless good times.
Maybe it's the rustic interior paneling that has soaked up over 35 years of festive cocktails, laughter and heavy cruising. Maybe it's the warm smiles on familiar faces, or the sparkle in some new eyes before you kiss. Or maybe it's just about building a loving community together with our straight friends and neighbors.
Whatever it is, The Rainbow is a place for good times and new memories. Come visit us soon!
Committed to Giving Back to the Community
In taking over the Rainbow Cattle Company, one of our top goals was to support the local community. To that end, we have started a new tradition: Giveback Tuesdays. Each week a local charity will be choosen. 10% of the sales for that Tuesday will be donated to the charity directly by us. The more the community supports the Rainbow on a given Tuesday, the more the charity will get. If you want to nominate a local charity for consideration for a Giveback Tuesday, email us.
This has turned out to be such a wonderful event, and a number of very deserving charities have received money. Since it's start in late November of 2005, over $75,000 has been given to the local charities from the Rainbow directly. This does not include all of the money raised by the actual charities during events on each and every Tuesday. It's impossible for us to say exactly how much money was raised in total, but it's safe to say it's in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. We are very pleased with how the community has pulled together to make this an amazing weekly event, and so much good has come from all of the donations and money raised.
