Everyone's Good Time Saloon
"It's all about The Vibe"
Hey everyone - Thanks for visiting the Rainbow Cattle Company's website. Please let us know how we can use this website to better reflect our community and serve your needs.
The Rainbow all started back in 1979 when a man named Hans opened this Main Street Bar in the middle of downtown Guerneville, CA. Hans, who owned many bars in San Francisco, planned for 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 carefree good times.
Maybe it's the rustic interior paneling that has soaked up 25 years of split cocktails, laughter and heavy cruising. Maybe it's the warm smiles on familiar faces, or the sparkle in some new eyes before you kiss. Maybe it's from finally seeing your mom in a GAY bar, and you can't get her to leave.
Maybe it's because one of our bartenders has worked here for 20 years, or a bar in Austin, TX and Brattleboro, VT were named after us. Or maybe it's about building a loving community together with our straight friends and neighbors.
Whatever it is, it is our job as the new owners to get out of the way and let The Rainbow express itself.
We hope you may always think of yourself as a Rainbow Regular, even if you're just able to join us once.
