Starline Social Club

Starline Social Club is a bar, a restaurant, a concert venue (Solange once performed here), and a place to dance to everything from R&B to pop to EDM, depending on the night. It’s also the spot where everyone knows everyone - where you learn that Oakland is big, but can feel very small. There are so many ways to use Starline: you could stop in for a really good cocktail and corn dogs in the big, airy bar during Happy Hour, or work up a sticky dance sweat in their ballroom upstairs. Starline is whatever you want it to be, and more importantly, it’s still one of the most culturally-diverse places in the city.
