I love the decor and the bar. Staff is friendly not very attentive but polite. It is small and intimate setting, not sure how big groups would do in this space if wanting to eat dinner. Although I did not care for the food they...More

Claustrophobic little hole-in-the-wall drinking establishment. The decor is interesting down to the toilet seats. The drinks are expensive but strong. The interior is a long, rectangle and it feels like your tucked into a little shoe box.

In Guerneville for the weekend and El Barrio was one of the many places I read about and knew we had to check out when in town. It opens at 3pm on Saturdays, as any respectable cocktail establishment should. We stopped in about 5pm, we...More

I've stopped in at El Barrio a few times now, and it could easily become a favorite. I especially like that it has large open windows to Guerneville's Main Street. It's not dark like so many bars. The sarape seat cushions add a colorful Latino...More
