Friends and Family
Friends and Family is the sexiest date night spot in Uptown Oakland. The women- and queer-owned cocktail bar is perpetually drenched in a soft pink glow that makes everyone look (and feel) hot. The back patio is buzzing with couples making eyes at each other over excellent rose-infused cocktails, duck tacos, and slices of one of the best carrot cakes in town. Even if you’re not here with a special someone, you might be after hitting up one of their queer speed dating events, vintage day markets, and bingo nights.
