Don’t Miss the Hopp-ortunity to Visit These Local Sonoma County Bars

It’s been a bit of a month, Sonoma. Luckily, we have no shortage of great bars to visit and enjoy. Here are four of our favorites to try out around our county.


Fast-paced and fun, the Lagunitas Taproom in Petaluma has food, music, and beer. What more could you ask for? Enjoy tapas with your Lagunitas on draft while you listen to live music with your friends. Check out their website for hours and a calendar of events you won’t want to miss.

Cotati and Windsor

This relaxed and fun outdoors spot, with heat lamps for these cooler NorCal days and nights, invites you to join in the locals’ experience. The Jaded Toad has a full menu with something for everyone and is kid friendly, so the whole family can enjoy an evening out. Happy Hour is Monday to Friday 3 to 6pm.

Santa Rosa

You’ll feel right at home in this Santa Rosa restaurant. Walking in feels like taking a step into Better Homes & Gardens magazine. If you’re looking for a more relaxed night out (date-night anyone?) Bird and the Bottle caters to you. They have a very dynamic menu, bringing in flavors from many different cultures. It’s a great time to try something new while enjoying a beer, glass of wine, or a refreshing cocktail.


Take a seat in the beer garden and enjoy live music and tapas at the HopMonk Tavern. With 16 seasonal beers on draft, you won’t know what to get first. Reservations are strongly recommended, and yes, you can bring your furry friends along with you.

A transplant from Southern California, she is a senior at Sonoma State University pursuing a Bachelor’s in English. She enjoys reading, British accents, and in another life she would be a Malacologist.
