HEALDSBURG SHUTS'ER DOWN A LITTLE EARLY.
But there are a few establishments open late, depending on your level of endurance...
Noble Folk Ice Cream and Pie Bar**
From my favortie cupcakes that brought you Moustache is their sister shop for unique pies and ice cream.
I love these guys and their team. And their creativity.
And the artwork on their walls (gratuitous plug for husband's still life and landscape oil paintings).
Cocktails & Swanky
The Bar @ Bravas
The bar area at Bravas is charming. On a cold night, the fireplace will be lit. They serve great drinks in a lively ambience.
On a warm night, check out their backyard bar.
Sexy, moody cocktail lounge. Looks like something out of a different era.
Very small, incredibly delicious bites from their kitchen. Perfect way to start or end your evening.
Great spot for a date.
The Bar @ Chalkboard
These guys aren't just bartenders, they're legit mixologists. And they're my favorite in town. Their creations are only surmounted by their charisma. The front room has small tables, if you don't feel like sitting at the bar...and sometimes they'll let you sit in the library of the hotel lobby next door.
Duke's Spirited Cocktails
What do you get when you put a bunch of friends--that are brilliant mixologists--into business together--and open shop in the original John & Zeke's locaion on the plaza? A perfect storm of creative perfection with zero pretention. Their craft cocktails are clever and delicious. And the atmosphere is charming. Love it. So happy they're here.
The Lobby @ Hotel Healdsburg
Grab a cozy chair by the fireplace and keep your night going. The drinks they serve are your classic bar drinks. Their winelist is nice too. Huge, local selection. Love grabbing a glass of bubbles after dinner when the conversation won't quit.
Lo & Behold
This beautiful new space just opened by a couple beautiful ladies.
Incredible, craft cocktails meets gorgeous comfort food. Open all day and late. You must go here.
Get the fried chicken.
In the lobby of H2 Hotel is a bar that serves fantastic craft cocktails. On a nice day, the doors are open to the sidewalk and the space is welcoming . On a quiet night, if you're able to get a seat at the bar: yay! Otherwise, grab a cocktail and take a seat in their back lounge area. Comfy couches and a great atmosphere.
Studio Barndiva/The Gallery Bar & Bistro
Gorgeous, eclectic space next door to Barndiva. Craft cocktails, fab wine list and small bites. Love the ambience.
Stellar for date night.
(Open when it's not rented out for a private event...which happens often...so call first to make sure before you get your hopes up.)
John & Zeke's
John & Zeke's is a Healdsburg right of passage. It's as classic as Healdsburg gets and will forever hold a special place in my heart. Mikey & Tony run the bar. Jukebox, pool table, stiff drinks. And hot dogs. John and Zeke's is always fun.
B&B is on the north end of town (@ Dry Creek Road & Healdsburg Ave.). Perfect place to end your night if you're looking for a dive bar and you're staying at or near the Dry Creek Inn/Best Western Hotel.
It's one of the unclassiest, classic joints in town. I think they might even still have a cigarette vending machine.
