The Bar & Cafe at The Rio Nido Lodge
is one of the oldest watering holes on the Russian River. Here we offer delicious tapas and bigger bites plus creative, fermented cocktails, a local beer selection and a wine list that doesn’t disappoint. You’ll surely fall in the love with the original stone fireplaces throughout, warm leather sofas and cut crystal glasses. An old Western saloon feel that takes you back to an era past.
