Viridian review image



2216 Broadway, Oakland
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Viridian is the rare bar where you can sip on a sweet (but balanced) cocktail infused with White Rabbit candy in a moody space inspired by Hong Kong cinema. The Uptown Oakland spot is a kaleidoscopic dream, with glowy neon lights and hanging lanterns inside. And high-tops and lounge-y couches in the back are ideal for cozying up with a date you’re trying to impress. The cocktails and food, a celebration of Asian American flavors, are presented like works of art, and taste like ones, too. You’ll leave especially blown away by the desserts, like the boba bowl covered in Thai tea granita and airy peanut meringue.
