Dan Sung Sa

Korean in Northgate-Waverly

    Perfect for
  • Big Groups
  • Late Night Eats

This Korean pub is open until 2am, which is a rare thing in a city where most restaurants shut down by midnight. While you could go home after a few drinks and warm up your two-day-old half of a burrito before passing out, you should go to Dan Sung Sa instead. Affectionately called Porno Bar or Porno Palace (raunchy magazine spreads used to cover the bathroom walls), Dan Sung Sa serves dishes like kimchi fried rice and BBQ galbi in a dark, energetic space that will make you want to keep eating, drinking, and talking well into the evening. This is where you come to watch late-night Oakland unfold.
