Best margarita! We stopped in last night because we were staying at the Boon hotel. We rode bikes into town. We had a margarita and a bowl of chips, salsa and guacamole. Everything was fabulous! If you like tequila, this is the place to go!!

We went there last night and we both got two different signature margaritas, both were the best we’ve ever enjoyed. Alexia was one of the more personable bar tenders I’ve ever encountered. Will visit again!

We came here twice during our weekend in Guerneville. The place reminds us of our visits to Sayulita in Mexico. The Margaritas are outstanding and the chips and Guacamole are not to be missed. The staff could not be nicer or more attentive. Loved that...this is where we could wait while our table at Boon was getting ready. This place is not to be missed.More

We visited this cute bar on the main strip in Guerneville for pre-dinner drinks. The margaritas did not disappoint!

Great vibe and creative cocktails. The bartenders are friendly and make you feel welcome. Skip the wine and have a margarita!

We went to El Barrio for a drink while waiting for a table at Boon for dinner.This place came as a recommendation and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Great cocktails, cool southwestern motif, lots of tequilas and mezcals to choose from. Definitely a spot to check...out while visiting Guerneville!More

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...did have vegetarian options. The chicken tacos tasted like boiled chicken tossed in mayo and the posole was flavorless.But the things you can't really mess up or to get with drinks would be the chips, guac and queso fundido (addictive!) Overall would come here again for drinks and to hang in a pretty space.More

Fabulous little spot for happy hour. Specializes in Tequila, Mezcal and Bourbon cocktails. Also has a nice selections of unusual appetizers (cucumbers in lemon and chili salt). I had a great jalapeno margarita and my gf had a delicious sangria. Cute little patio in the...back.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.

By far my favorite bar in Guerneville. The space is so rustic, modern and cool. And the drinks are the best in town. You must try the El Jardin...it will change your life! Service is friendly and welcoming and they will explain each drink to...you if you have questions. They have a cute little back patio which is fun for warm evenings while sipping your cocktail. You must check this bar out if you are in town. The only frustrating thing is their hours of operation...they close at midnight most days and at 9pm on Sundays, which seems a little early. But other than that, I love this place!!!More
