If Friends had been set in Berkeley, the patio at Jupiter would have been their Central Perk. This place serves fantastic local beers, pizzas, and bar snacks best consumed under the fairy lights and next to the fire pit in the giant outdoor seating area. There’s usually a band playing jazz or funk, and the crowd is always having a great time - it’s hard not to. Come with a group of friends when you want to have a long, relaxed hangout, and/or figure out which one of you is the Rachel.
