Owner description: One of the town's hot gay bars.
Reviewed 20 January 2011

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.


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 week. Though someone has mistakenly classified the Bull Pen as a gay bar it is primarily a straight bar that a few of the gay locals visit occasionally. This is why the person who wrote this review believed that "If it was a gay bar, it's not now" That would be true of the Bull Pen which never was a gay bar but not true of the Rainbow Cattle Co. which is most definitely a gay bar.

There are a couple of other reviews for the Rainbow under Restaurants for some reason. The Rainbow occasionally has events that feature food but is by no means a restaurant. You can find those reviews below. You can also find the link to the bar's website somewhere on this page.

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!

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 in town. It takes an open mind, yes you will see same sex couples kissing, or more, in public, but what is the problem? No one is going to force anyone to do anything they don't want to do. This bar, like the others in town are happy fun places, often with good enterainment, good people to meet, and great friends to be found. Don't let preconcived notions put you off. Gay/Lesbian couples are simply people that may think differently than you do about sex, but they are still fun, smart, and friendly folk. Don't judge them on their sexuality (after all, they are not going to ask you to go to bed with them!) judge the bar, and the people on how much fun it is to have a good time with good people
