Only because it's newer than Beer Revolution.

Re: “Heart and Dagger Saloon

The H&D is a great spot to go on a date, kick back with your friends, or meet the nice "regulars." There's a variety of drink options and special events like Craft Beer Sunday and a new Spa afternoon where ladies can relax with a couple drinks in hand. And, it's all served up by a great staff who serve you quickly and make you feel welcome to "hang out."

Re: “Make Westing

Obviously. There's no place that's consistently better (or busier). The sandwiches are incredible, the cocktails always solid and everything is beyond reasonably priced. The outdoor patio is now a local hangout for a cross section of Oakland natives. Best bar by far.

Re: “Drake's Brewery and Barrel House

Hard to beat good beer on the patio on a nice warm day.

Re: “White Horse Bar

The oldest in the Bay Area still has it. Pool, Burlesque, events and beer busts. Still numero uno in my book.

Re: “Era Art Bar and Lounge

Love their cocktails - high end and tons of whiskey and bourbon choices.

Re: “Prizefighter

Laid back, outside and inside seating - you can go here all dolled up for dinner (it's swanky inside) or in your jeans with the dog to sit outside. It's the perfect blend, all while being just far enough away to make it not too hard to nestle up to that bar for another smooth cocktail.

Re: “Sweet Adeline Bakeshop

Delicious and in a perfect spot to keep it just busy enough and not too busy so I can always get my fix. Their almond morning bread is mouth watering.

Re: “Peet's Coffee & Tea

Peets brought/invented dark, full bodied roasts in America. We'd still be drinking Folgers, Hills Brothers or Sanka without Mr. Peet! Every boutique coffee roaster in the bay area or the good old USA needs to thank Peets

Re: “Icon Ultra Lounge

Amazing and total mix-it-up venue; though you never know what event is going on when you show up, they always deliver, the security is fabulous, the staff is courteous and inviting, and the decor is freakin awesome. The have 2 different rooms you can dance in and one whole bar room all equipt with gold couches and hand painted coffee tables all over (they even have cute stenciled F8 logos in the corners!). Even in the backroom, which is smaller, the DJ is heard completely and without any clash between the the smaller and the larger rooms and it looks like they actually take care of the decor; there's a giant mural on the back wall that is apparently changed seasonally. I would totally recommend going here on a night with the bands (Tuesdays,) or for Housepitality (free champagne from 9-10) or on Saturdays when Trapp City is hosting the evening.

Re: “Starbucks

Off the beaten trails. Nice place to relax, write, spend time that's usually not so crowded and has a decent view of trees.

Re: “Portal

Awesome food and atmosphere. The owner is incredibly accommodating and conscientious of the guest. Love the variety of food and multiple beers. The patio on a sunny day is THE place to be!

Re: “Yoshi's Oakland

They made me the best grilled goat cheese sandwich ever! And a Redbull vodka to go with it.

Re: “New Karibbean City

To have been in Oakland all these years and still be here standing tall. Says a lot about the longevity of a good time in the East Bay! Under rated! Should not be over looked! :-o
