INSPIRED BY HER TRAVELS AND A LOVE OF ALL THINGS MEXICAN, THE CONCEPT OF EL BARRIO WAS BORN.
Our visionary, Crista Luedtke, never stops. Let her get bored for a minute and she comes up with a new idea. In the growing culinary destination of Guerneville, she saw an opportunity to bring a modern upscale cocktail scene to the front lines. To have a space to showcase artisanal hand crafted spirits such as mezcal, tequila, and bourbon just felt like the right thing to do. Our goal is to provide an amazing product, experience, and atmosphere to all who come. We’re not fussy or pretentious – we’re about great cocktails in a welcoming space- and a bit of education from our staff if you want it, just ask. We’ve expanded our offerings to include some regional Mexican cuisine as well so you can come… and stay for dinner, or nurse your hangover at Sunday brunch.
