The Sound Room is the most friendly, small jazz club in Oakland. They have great acts -my favorite is Kenny Washington. The food is good and the drinks are great! Their service is warm and friendly. Try it and you’ll love it!

Saw Mark Lewis and his quartet perform to a full house. Club is small, so easy to see and hear the performance, and rub shoulders with the musicians.

This is my favorite place to go our for a night of great music and light fare. They get the best in local jazz talent, run a great non-profit, and even prepare the small plates and serve nice house wine. Great vibes!

Ranging from Jazz to Blues to Big Bands to Piano Bar singalongs this is a fun place to hang. Limited food and alcohol available. A 501c3 not in business to empty your pockets. But will definitely fill your heart and mind with joy.
