If you are looking for a cold one, this the place to stop. it is rich in character, and history. The floor and bar stools are sitting at a slant. It hasn't changed, period. No lap tops are allowed. They may enforce the no cell...More

First, I thought it's a tourist trap attracting customers with some "fake" historical value, but it's actually indeed a historic place. And it is connected to the Oakland history in many ways, so it is worth a visit. It's a nice place to have a...More

The Venue is tiny yet has a very cool vibe. The bar has a 45 degree slant because of the earthquake. Every item in the bar has a story. Great place to spend a hour having a conversation about Oakland's history

We were in Oakland in the rain, so we stepped into the Saloon. The floor is uneven and slanted. The room is tiny, and the bar is original from the 1800's. Sitting down with an Irish coffee in this place is like traveling back in...More

This bar truly is as good as it gets. The bartenders are the best and most colorful you could ever ask for, the drinks are stiff and reasonably priced, the decor is fun and keeps your eyes and brain busy, and the entire place just...More

Fantastic little small bar in Jack London Square in Oakland! It is truly a hole in the wall. Loved the atmosphere! The floor sloped greatly due to an earthquake, but not a big deal to me as we enjoyed the outdoor patio!

If you are on Jack London Square, look for this place, otherwise you'll regret it. We were lucky enough to get to seat inside (there are only 3-4 tables). There are also more tables outside. The place has a special charm to it, with all...More

The most bizarre bar I have ever been. Inside very small and everything is crooked. Nice interior which is completely filled with history. It is also still cozy despite the small amount of available space.
