Based on the Island’s facade — a nondescript stucco wall with red and green stripes — it’s difficult to fathom just how cool this Alameda joint is on the inside. Located a few blocks from the Webster Tube, it specializes in dancehall, reggae, R&B, merengue, and soca, erring more on the pop side. Thatched roofs, orange lanterns, and a small dance floor give the Island a real Caribbean isle feel. This is a weekend-only joint with a classy dress code. There’s no cover for Ladies Nite on Fridays, and there is a cover for Reggae International Saturdays with DJ Electro.

Hours: Fri.-Sat. 9 p.m.-2 a.m.
