El Rio *

A mixed crowd pleases all tastes
This lesbian-owned bar bills itself as a neighborhood bar, but it is popular with the LGBT crowd, in particular for its outdoor dance parties with some of the Bay Area's best DJs and BBQ. The bar also hosts many events. Lesbians flock to the bar monthly from May - December for Mango, a popular T-Dance, and the bar is the official location for the Trans March after-party. On an average day, gay and straight mix and mingle in the often very crowded space. A welcoming and unpretentious option for a night out.
