Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
the food at disco is out of sight! hot smoked pork belly? yes please! the wait staff is always very friendly and accommodating. the cocktails are nicely made. plus the bartenders are very knowledgeable about the beer and wine they serve.
i've played here a number of times, so i'm really not sure what the extremely negative review is about here. i've never been hassled in any way by the owner. he's a great guy, and a straight shooter.
come down to disco volante for some great food and drink. support local musicians!
THE MONDAY NIGHT KARAOKE IS HAPPENING! COME JOIN US AND ENJOT THIS CASUAL, LAID BACK ATMOSPHERE FOR AN AFTER-WORK DRINK OR LATE NIGHT GET TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS!
Awesome photos! They perfectly capture how I always pictured Berkeley before I moved to the bay area.
Great show! Documentary photos of Berkeley in the 1960's,
with many shots of the response of CA Governor Ronald Reagan to
the People's Park protest - he ordered the National Guard to take
over downtown Berkeley and the UC campus. Also interesting photos of Tim Leary, dancing and music in the streets. Photos are for sale.
Lousy service - and they do not keep their committment to the musicians and pay them what was agreed upon in email.
I do not recommend this place as I said, the owner Damon was rude - demanded I give up the table I had been holding waiting for a friends to join me for dinner - no sooner did I give up the table when my friends came in. Because I had one of my artists performing their that night and had asked several people to come out to support I could not very well leave - we wound up standing in the back eating dinner standing up at the end of the bar - when I had sufficient seating for us - just 5 mins before their arrival! I had promoted telling my friends to come out and support this new business! DO NOT SUPPORT THEM!
Damon agreed to a $10 cover for the bands I booked - and refused to charge more than $5 - I understand venues are hurting - but when you agree to something you must keep your word - I even reached a compromise and communicated with the musicians - they still did not honor their word on the compromise - he was insulting to me - insulting to the musicians - and I strongly advise not going here - the only redeemable thing about this place are the corn nuts!
Great neighborhood bar with the East Bay's best patio. Good selection of booze for great prices and the jukebox rocks!
If you like the kind of coffee that puts hair on your chest and is missing that burnt-been-sitting-here-for-hours taste, then look no more. No matter if you buy the beans or come in for a cup, Cole consistently has the best coffee in town. This is not the weakstuff in which you can see the bottom of your cup. This is colon exercising brew that tastes delicious!
Fresh, authentic diversity. Best DJs on the West Coast. Friendly, all-ages community. Scrumptious eats on the premises. Laid-back, conscious, sexy crowd.
They have 6, yes 6 dartboards. You got a problem with six?
I second the previous reviewer. It was a great place, even a five star place. Staff was great, it was always great to drop by.
Now you get a meager 4 tastings for the money. If they have wine on sale, that does not mean it is for taste (what sense does that make?), no deviation from the tastting menu anymore. Most wine got mediocre. I am no longer a member and won't buy there anymore.
the best pub for micro brews and IPA'S add the fact they have live music every night with no cover charge and you have a great place for nights out or just to drop by for a beer
No frills dance club enjoyment.
Great sound system, friendly staff, strong drinks and diverse crowd!
WE LIVE IN ALAMEDA AND WE'VE ENJOYED MUSIC AT McGRATH'S SEVERAL TIMES, BUT NOW THEY SAY "NO MORE MUSIC EVER AGAIN" DUE TO "DIFFICULTIES WITH THE CITY". THE TIMES WE HAVE GONE THERE IT WAS VERY LAID-BACK, NOT LOUD ENOUGH TO DISTURB NEIGHBORS, A BIT OLDER MELLOW CROWD, THE KIND OF PLACE I WOULD THINK THE CITY WOULD WELCOME INSTEAD OF SQUEEZING IT OUT. THANKS A LOT, ALAMEDA
BEST BAR IN TOWN!!!!!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!! A reg for me!
The staff is great and everything is made on the premises except a few minor things, if that. Mostly organic and the food is incredible!!!! GO THERE!!!
I take everyone there who visits, they all love it. Even the meat eaters in the fam.
Absolutely <3 Mezzanine!
Seen the best shows there. Perfect size, you can get close to the stage if you want or just chill in the VIP.
Great staff and always a blast.
One of, if not THE, best mid sized concert venue in SF.
Simply put: I Love this place!
One of my top favorite bars in the Oakland East Bay! This beer-only pub serves as a "Toys-R-Us" for the avid beer drinker. You'll be mesmerize by the endless options of the rare & delicious varieties of beer on tap or from one of their many refrigerators. The kicker is if you happen to select one of the yummy beers from the fridge and take it to the counter to pay- you get asked if you want to drink it there or "to go"! Yes folks- you can take one of these delicious flavored beers or ciders with you when you leave to enjoy at home! A great spot for good quality brews! Sorry- NO bud, pbr, miller or anything of that nature. But their raspberry beer, chocolate stout, & barley wine is to die for! Come make a new friend enjoy your lunch on a sunny weekend on their patio and watch for their occasional outdoor BBQs, beer tastings, and art shows!
One of the best bars in Oakland. Staffed with friendly bartenders and an eclectic mix of patrons: punk, indie, metal, hip-hop, etc...
Always a warm welcome and an overall "Cheers" feel to the place. Watch out for their weekend DJ nights that turn into a total impromptu party!
Great place -- very convenient for El Cerrito folks, very friendly owners, good Semifreddi's pastry selection. Good lunch options too, bagel sandwiches and spanish-stype "bocadillo" sandwiches. Nice outdoor seating in good weather, very kid-friendly, and a nice gift shop is right next door for browsing.
