Located in beautiful downtown Los Altos, HONCHO is a lounge serving artisanal beverages & bites.
Come say hi to the staff:
Tait, Kimberly, Dainen, Taylor, Kelsey, Heather, Alex & Ellen!
Our beverage menu changes slightly every week - especially tap beer. We serve small plates & will continue to expand our menu throughout the year.
Enjoy drinks on the patio where it's kid & dog friendly. Take one to go & sip while you shop downtown Los Altos or grab a bottle to take home!
First Fridays we feature local jazz artists, no cover charge!
Cheers, thanks for all of the support,

"Cocktail Chronicles" by Sal Pizarro 01.10.17
Honcho hits the low-key high mark
"Honcho, the bar Rod Newman opened in downtown Los Altos in late 2015, is a great place for people who want a taste of cocktail culture without being overwhelmed by high-proof spirits.
I slipped in there recently with Mrs. Cocktail Chronicles and a couple of friends who had recommended it — and it was a good thing we went with them. You could very easily pass by the store front’s frosted glass windows without noticing — we did until our friends pulled us back. It’s not a huge space inside, and there was quite a buzzy crowd there for a Wednesday night."

Head of Honcho uncorks wine bar
"At Honcho – a newly opened craft beer and wine lounge in downtown Los Altos – proprietor Rod Newman is all about reds, whites and relationships.
“I really enjoy interacting with people,” the Los Altos resident said. “My mother is a lifetime teacher – maybe I got that from her.”
She also bequeathed the bar’s name, taken from her affectionate parental chiding: “Look who’s the head honcho.”
