Re: “Dorsey's Locker

What does the first line in your review mean, dorseydon? Inside joke of some sort? Inquiring minds need to know!

Re: “The Fireside Lounge

Clean, well lit, friendly and warm (must be the fireplace). Best open mic in the East Bay because it is a songwriter's open mic (must play at least one original to perform at all).

Re: “Luka's Taproom & Lounge

I had a great time. The music has a nice old school back in the day Silks feel. I highly recommend checking out Body Language Thursday Nights at Lukas!

Re: “Highwire Coffee Roasters

The owners are a coffee and tea dream team with over 50 years combined experience. Rich, Robert & Eric love nothing more than meeting customers and sharing their love of fine coffees and teas. You won't meet three nicer people and can ask them any questions, whether you are a seasoned Third Waver or an occasional decaf drinker.
The pastries from Starter Bakery are the best around - the Kouign Amann is a bit of heaven.
Keep your eyes on Highwire, great things are coming from these guys. They care about their customers and what they brew the cup.

Re: “Disco Volante

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.

Re: “Disco Volante

I am a musician and have performed at Disco Volante three times. I (and our band) have been treated very well, Damon has been enthusiastic, helpful and supportive.The staff has been friendly and capable. I don't know where the critical person is coming from. I have only the best to say about Disco Volante. Randy

Re: “Disco Volante

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!

Re: “Sonoma Coffee Cafe

Awesome photos! They perfectly capture how I always pictured Berkeley before I moved to the bay area.

Re: “Sonoma Coffee Cafe

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.

Re: “Disco Volante

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!
