While there are plenty of places in Uptown Oakland to get your drink on, Bar 355 is truly a standout, hidden gem of a watering hole that serves up specialty cocktails right. With an extensive selection of rare alcohols, sip on your drink of choice in the dimly lit, luxe-meets-hip decorative space. If your inner dancing machine feels like making an appearance, be sure to boogie on a night that a local DJ is spinning (it’s a must!). Cut a rug on stage, under the gleaming disco ball, cocktail in hand. Either way, heading into Bar 355 won’t disappoint. Cheers!
Bar 355, 355 19th Street (between Webster and Franklin streets), Oakland; 510-451-3355.
