Bar

“This is the second of our nicest restaurants in town. Patrona offers upscale food in a relaxed atmosphere. Professionals often stop by after work to enjoy an adult beverage and a swanky meal before heading home after the work day. There is outdoor seating where you may see the stars, and the passers-by as you enjoy your tasty food. Be prepared to pay $20-$30 (and up if you drink) per person, though.”

“Contemporary art, Native American cultures, Western American history, historic California art and local natural history. Permanent collections showcase Grace Hudson’s art; her family’s history; and Pomo culture and basketry. Make sure to take a tour of The Hudson’s charming 1911 redwood Craftsman bungalow home. ”
