It’s Friday after a long week at work, and nothing sounds better than grabbing a drink with friends. In Santa Rosa, there’s plenty of great watering holes. Whether it’s beer, whiskey, wine, or a cocktail, here are the best places to grab a drink in Santa Rosa.
Tex Wasabi’s is one of Guy Fieri’s restaurants, located in downtown Santa Rosa. They offer unique sushi rolls with barbecue chicken instead of fish, and sriracha is a staple in their dishes. They’re known for having a Wednesday night special on their “Fishbowls,” best split between four people. Their mojitos are also a must try.
Tex Wasabi’s, 515 4th Street Santa Rosa, CA, USA (+1) 707-544-8399
Just down the street from Tex Wasabi’s is Russian River, a local brewery that is a regular spot for most locals. They host live bands and have a full menu as well as an ever-growing selection of beer. If it’s your first time visiting, it’s recommended you go for the beer sampler. They can get busy fast, but that does not stop them from making sure everyone is satisfied with their experience.

Third Street Ale Works
Third Street Aleworks are best known for their trivia nights and the Tuesday ‘$2.50 beer and brats’ special. There are plenty of televisions around for sports-lovers, and the laid-back atmosphere makes it a ideal spot to go to with friends to catch a game. They have an amazing happy hour, and their sliders are worth a try too. There’s also plenty of seating, indoors and outdoors, and a pool table upstairs.

Fogbelt Brewing Company
Located in the middle of Santa Rosa, Fogbelt Brewing Company is almost hidden. Their beers steal the show, and they offer a sampler for first time visitors. Each beer is named after a Coast Redwood tree, so they’re easy to remember. It can get crowded in the evening, especially on their Trivia nights, but the servers make sure to keep all their customers happy.
