    There's a bar in the back of the front is too busy. It shuts down earlier though. Cocktails are fantastic. Highly recommend anything with tequila and / or mezcal.

    I got a tomato basil truffle grilled cheese and the only thing I regretted was not ordering two.

    Bartenders know their stuff and use good quality local spirits when possible. Ask about Amaro and you're in for a treat.

    The back bar is new and so far under the radar. Head there when the front room is over run. You can't transfer your tab between bars.

    It's like the stole my 90s playlist and rocked it all night. The drinks sent bad either - my wife thought the 'Rosie Lee' was a showstopper.

    Go to spot for drinks in Oakland, can get crowded. Grilled cheese will make you feel guilty but 100% worth it

    Don't leave without a grilled cheese. The cooks will make you whatever you like, so don't be afraid to ask for something off the menu.

    Great ambience. Awesome grilled cheeses and charcuterie. Be sure to watch the slicing action of the sweet mechanical slicer.

    Wasn't obscenely crowded and didn't have a cover on first Fri (unlike all other bars). Plus, great cocktails. Go after art murmur!

    Definitely a great place to grab "cocktails & cured meat" pre- or post-show at the Fox or Uptown. Say hello to Lexi and by all means $how your bartender some love.

    Nice place to grab a drink and super convenient since it's directly across the street from the office. They're also a charcuterie, but I don't think they're at the same level as a place like Adesso

    They cure all their many meats on-site. Go to the meat counter & buy a pound of flesh to nosh sur place, or to take back to your lair. Read more
