This club, modeled after an Eastern European wooden synagogue, is a Berkeley institution dedicated to dance and music. The nonprofit venue hosts live music nearly every night, and shows are all-ages. Ashkenaz hosts reggae, bluegrass, Balkan, Brazilian, Cajun, and Caribbean bands, just to name a few. Come early for a dance class or on Sunday afternoon for a kids' concert.

Hours: Open Tue-Sun. Hours vary, but generally 8 p.m.-12 a.m. on weeknights and 9 p.m.-2 a.m. on weekends. Sun. 3-4:30 p.m. for kids' concerts.
