This American bistro joint is said to have a 1930's feel to the interior with dim lighting and a retro design. A spot for all meals of the day, this restaurant also includes a heavy wine selection with a bar to cope. On weekends, there may be a DJ, but check the web site for event listings and be sure to stop by for happy hour.
Always dress fly for this trendy Jack London Square hip-hop club. Decked out with a huge dancefloor, two fully-stocked bars, VIP cabanas, a waterfront deck, and windows overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Zazoos bills itself as a Grand Central Station for mingling, a place to see and be seen. KMEL DJ's spin every Saturday from 9:30pm to 1am, wherein local celebrity waxslingers spin hip-hop, reggaetón, R&B, and crunk, usually for a pricey $20 cover, though its pretty easy to snag a $5 VIP pass via Treetop Entertainment (TreetopEntertainment.net). If such razzle-dazzle really isnt your thing, you can always have a fulfilling night chopping it up with the clubs bouncers -- considering Zazoos otherwise-upscale vibe, theyre refreshingly down-to-earth.
The Lake Merritt wine bar, a neighboring component to Sorella di Zza’s Italian restuarant, features more than 40 wines available by the taste, glass, or flight. It also accomodates private parties of up to 25 people.
