Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Probably my favorite bar in the East Bay... Would be here all too often if I lived a little closer.
I love that people seem to hate their bartenders... Only had a problem once and it was an honest mistake.
Cheap, heavy pours and good food.
Great coffee!! I found it now on Amazon. Straight to my door.
Going to Brix on a Sunday morning for chicken fried steak has become as natural as getting coffee every morning. Now that they have added the bottomless mimosas I'm a happy camper.
Real award winning coffee, not just burned beans like Peets. More like McCallums on Solano many years ago when they sold ice cream and coffee. And also, real people, of all sorts, meeting, talking, working on wifi - a great place to hang out.
I love Shooter's the atmosphere is very cool and me and my friends have been coming to this bar for years! I love Rosie the bartender she makes the best drinks 😊 the only thing I would change is the age requirement to 30 & up!
Best bar I've been to in Oakland
FYI This location is open, not sure why it has been flagged as closed on East Bay Express! Qulture Collective is open M-F 8am-4pm.
I love this place. Knowledgeable bartenders, enormous selection and comfortable atmosphere all keep me coming back for more.

One of the worst lounge in Oakland I have been there one time it is not safe to have fun around there.And very poor customer service.....
So Gary Siu is right. There are no club dates posted for this Historical Bar, The Roundup Saloon in Lafayette at 3553 MT. Diablo Blvd. It is kind of a unique, Funky bar where live bands perform periodically. Tim Barnes band has successfully performed there 2 times and is coming up on August 28 for a recipe for a Rock and Roll Banquet. see www.timbarnesrocks.com I submitted an ad for the upcoming performance to that club for the band Tim Barnes & the Five Grand Band in plenty of time, (2 weeks prior) for the East Bay Express to announce it . At the time the ad was acknowledged by the events editor, but so far there has been no posting in the music and entertainment section of the East Bay Express for the Lafayette club. Up and coming struggling bands should be advertised. In this case, Tim Barnes, not a newcomer to the rock scene was a key member of the very popular '70's band Stoneground which made rock n rock history for a short time in the San Fransisco Bay area. With the management of Tom Donahue who was associated with an Alameda radio station at that time, took this band, under contract with Warner Brothers pictures, on 2 whirlwind movie tours which have since become cult movies and were shown successfully for a number of years internationally. "Medicine Ball Caravan" and the more successful, "Dracula, 1972 AD," That band was a hard driving band spearheaded by the growling guitar work and vocals by Tim Barnes. The unique solid rhythmic drive attracted local luminaries as Pete Sears, Jefferson Starship bassist and keyboard player and Sal Valentino.The band had tremendous success a handful of years but could not sustain because of so many in the band's personnel. There was a short hit single by one of the then girl singers at that time. After the demise of SToneground, Tim has had a successful career in Sacramento, first with the group called, the Fabulous Flames, then on to 25 year association with Mick Martin and the Blues Rockers. Tim continues to make rock history which is 100% home cooked. The ingredients of the hot band includes the high energy of Dan Stanton on bass and vocals, moving bass player and vocals, Gregg King, on master drums, Kenny Nichols and pulling it together, Chris Burns on keyboard. Come take a listen and you will soon be dancing your off!
The best coffee in the Bay Area, bar none.
Amazing stuff. Now will even be making Gin!
This place rocks small town style, funk, rock, jazz and more.
Best food for drinking and awesome whiskey all the time!
It's a classic. Nuff said.
Best cafe snack ever: A WHOLE AVOCADO on Acme toast, with kalamatas!
