Heinold's First and Last Chance

In 1883, a small bunkhouse, built from the wood of a whaling ship on the harbor between Alameda and Oakland, began to sell hooch and beer. As the port of Jack London expanded, and sailors began to take their leave of land and whiskey there-in, this bunkhouse became known as J. M. Heinold's First and Last Chance. Today, it stands as the only place where you can drink a beer at the same table, in the same spot used by Jack London, president and Supreme Court Justice William Howard Taft, and Robert Lewis Stevenson. On June 1, the bar celebrated its 125th anniversary. Now that's seriously old school.
