There’s a light at the end of the tunnel… and that is Oakland’s dynamic Uptown neighborhood!

Around the Area

This East Bay gem is stocked with some of California’s trendiest bars and restaurants and public transportation makes the commute from Oakland to San Francisco a breeze. Uptown is enjoying an artistic renaissance and there is also lots of entertainment on offer. Residents can get to most places by foot, and bike lanes are everywhere.

Here are some of Uptown’s hottest spots: Blind Tiger- A truly unique dining or late night happy hour experience! Make Westing- Established in 2011, it is hard to imagine Uptown without this mainstay. Fox Theater- This 1928 former movie house had massive renovations in 2009 that kept all the original architectural details. Artists from the Avett Brothers to the late Prince have graced this historic stage and there will be many more awesome shows to come.

The New Parkway- Modeled after the original Parkway this hipster theater is perfect for a date night. Grab a glass of wine and a home slice and prepare to watch cult classics like Dirty Dancing, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, or Get Out. Comfy couches are just perfect for canoodling. Starline Social Club- Britney Spears themed dance parties, private rooms, and refreshing cocktails make this one of Oakland’s “it” places to be on a Saturday night. Great Western Power Company If fitness and thrill seeking is more your speed, be sure to stop in for a quick climb. All ages and all levels are welcome, there are plenty of crossfit classes, but the challenge really comes from scaling up the walls.
