Capacity : 400
Seated Capacity with dance floor : 150
The second story ballroom features an original sprung wood floor (a hallmark of many dance halls built in the late 19th century), north-west facing windows, original built in booth seating for 30, a stage, a balcony, a bar, 25 ft. ceilings with an attic above, and a green room on the third floor. White walls with black trim, wood accents, milk glass pendant light fixtures, and the elegant, simple details speak of an earlier time, while acting as a blank canvas for renters, wedding parties and stylists to transform the space for any occasion. Sunset light streams through the large windows, and dim lights with plenty of candles makes for the perfect lighting once the sun goes down.
Book your wedding, bar mitzvah, family reunion, company party, happy hour event, production shoot, music video, fundraisers, release party, big birthday dinner !
The Social Club
Perfect for Happy hours and Brunches!
The cavernous bar downstairs features the original pressed tin ceiling and plaster walls, and the newer additions of a curved asymmetrical wood bar, booth seating, and a plethora of palms, ferns and cacti. With sun set light beaming in, the space transports guests to another time and place, yet at its heart is characteristic of Oakland and the artists that dreamed up the renovation of this 1893 Oakland treasure. Relics hang on the wall from the years when this space was an Odd Fellows Hall; bartenders blast eclectic music that spans the last 100 years.
The Crystal Tavern
is our still-kind-of-secret “back room” located next to the Social Club (our bar and restaurant) on street level. It’s accessible only though the bar, speakeasy style. Black ceilings, a large crystal chandelier, dim romantic lighting, and plaster walls – this room is equipped with a professional sound system, its own bar- throw a dinner party, birthday gathering or a secret show for your friends and family to dance under our crystal chandelier.
