Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
What a fantastic space! A cool club with comfy couches, excellent sound and great music. AND you can BYOB for no charge (they don't sell alcohol here).
Berkeley has been missing a smaller, more intimate place for acoustic music since the Freight grew up and became huge, and The Back Room fills this gap with style! I love the variety of music - folk, blues, soul, pop, world, bluegrass, Cajun, etc. - and it has a very chill, friendly vibe.
I purchased my Steinway D from Peidmont Piano Company and I could not be happier! Thanks to Jim Callahan, the manager, I was able to purchase and have the concert grand shipped from the California SanFrancisco bay area to Dayton, Tennessee without issue. I also got a great deal! Thank you Jim and Piedmont Pianos!!!

You can see musicians up close and personal at this venue with an outstanding selection of world-class pianos surrounding you. The shows have enhanced with new lighting on some nights and it's absolutely breathtaking.
This place rocks small town style, funk, rock, jazz and more.
Nest shows and orchestra.
Always offering great music and interesting events
I love the whole concept of having our own performing arts center.
This club is the BEST. Every night is a different kind of LIVE Music. You can choose from Blues, Rock, Cajun, African, Carribean, Reggae, Brazilian, and many, many MORE. The dance floor is wooden and has give to it, so it does not hurt. Three good bathrooms, inexpensive to enter, eat, and drink. It's Very safe and has plenty of parking in the REI lot across the street at Gilman and San Pablo Ave.
It is cozy and yet stylish, open to the street and ringing with the amazing beauty of powerful performances.
The telephone number to the hall is 510.522.7626
Nice to see local musicians getting a place to play.
Five stars on every count: artists, venue, seating, personnel, libations!
I'm going to miss my neighborhood venue, but look forward to going to the new location in Oakland!
