"El Rio began her life in 1978 as a Leather Brazilian Gay Bar! Our Papa’s,Malcolm and Robert ran things until their retirement when the helm passed to The Posse.
We are a LGBTQ+ space who is welcoming to all good people. We actively invest in communities to promote social change. We actively invest in our local arts and music scene to give space for artists. We actively pursue underserved communities in the use of our space. All events are rain or shine.
We have wireless and it’s super duper strong!We are friendly folks who can make a mean margarita and we love love love what we do.
We also have a bad bad temper for jerks so if you are one, don’t come and if you run across one here, let us know and we will happily have a chat with them.
We do not allow recording in the club other than you and your friends. We respect everyone's privacy and appreciate that you do too."
