— Story —

We are a casual neighborhood cocktail joint just a stone's throw away from downtown Sonoma. Starling Bar features hand-crafted cocktails, an assortment of international and regional iconic craft beers, and wine; all with a splash of local spirit, and graciously served by the most knowledgeable bartenders in Sonoma County. 


Like our feathered friends, love’m or hate’m, we are the wine country’s freshest flavor!
