Retro Cocktails Tour of Uptown An eight-block walking tour with four different cocktails, art deco gazing, and two snacks, including a luscious grilled cheese made with handmade mozzarella…
It’s easy to notice the bold deco styles and bright lights of historic theater marquees when you ramble around the Bay Area. Oakland’s especially lucky to have the theaters of filmic rivals Paramount and Fox still intact, placed just blocks apart to woo the crowds. In between these two historically-renovated spaces are a constellation of cocktail denizens, each with their own Retro-infused vibe. One is owned by a talented furniture designer, another is the boozy offshoot from one of San Francisco’s most prized kitchens, yet another makes vintage highballs and are so serious about their grilled cheeses that they lit up a marble-countered mini-room just for the job. We’ll get a scoop of the architectural and historical highlights, toast Gertrude Stein, peek inside a theater, learn how to mix and muddle, and of course there will be cocktails-o-plenty to taste. We’ve shrunk our drink sizes so we wouldn’t worry mother, and, as always, our start and end points are close to public transit. This is a perfect after-work outing for friends and co-workers!
Retro Cocktails Tour runs every Thursday from 7 to 9:30pm. We’ll send you the meet up location and further details when you book!
