Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Honestly, they have the best sound I've heard at any venue in the Bay Area...
A truly beautiful room sonically and visually. The Fillmore of the East Bay with even more cutting edge sound and easier public transit access... Literally two blocks from Downtown Berkeley BART.
Staff is friendly and attentive. Even the food is good.
Fabulous place to watch local artists create and also sell their work at affordable prices. I highly recommend a visit.
A really thought provoking show! I really enjoyed seeing the diversity of interpretation of Pope Francis's Encyclical.
The Alley is located at 2309 Encinal Ave., Alameda, CA 94501

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.

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.
It is cozy and yet stylish, open to the street and ringing with the amazing beauty of powerful performances.
Events at this space are over the top amazing. Features plenty of safe parking, a large art showing area, lounge, and rooftop lounge. I highly recommend anything that happens at this location. Run by some incredible community minded folks who know what it takes to create amazing, welcoming, friendly spaces. Get ready to meet and talk to some of the Bay Area's most interesting people while you wander from amazing artwork to the rooftop smoking lounge. I'm looking forward to many more amazing events at Phaneros.
Bomb bicycle coffee!
For anyone who enjoys automotive history, or the art of design and beauty, Bkackhawk will not disappoint. Showing some of the most breathtaking examples of pre-war elegance, technological advancements, and legendary racing, this museum has taken the exhibition of automobiles to another level. Each car stand on it's own against an empty black background, and expertly lit to accentuate it's unique shape and design. This Museum truly blurs the line between engineering design, and fine art. This is a must see for any, but for some, it will really be a life changing event.
Please patronize this wonderful cultural asset to the community. Great folks, superb musicians, VERY high caliber jazz is found here, and beautiful art on every wall! Great place!
The Studio's actual grand opening is Sept 13th! However, we will be chillin' in the studio this Friday night. So feel free to stop by! We have quite a bit a work up from various bay area artists on display right now. Plus we have a huge ROBOT, "Friendly Lord Zondar". You can see some of the work on display here: https://www.facebook.com/Studio23Alameda
They made me the best grilled goat cheese sandwich ever! And a Redbull vodka to go with it.
Great Venue! I saw the Old time Music Convention there
Best late night food in Downtown Oakland. And they don't gouge you for it either.
Also, there are only two bars in Downtown that are open on Sunday nights and that are worth a damn, and Disco Volante is one of them.
And beyond that, the staff is excellent, and so is the atmosphere.
