Private Events

We host dance parties, community events, DJ nights, private/public events, fundraisers, screenings, weddings, birthdays, art parties, happy hours, hoedowns, and karaoke throwdowns.

We love hosting our annual rock n roll holiday food drive at the Uptown – best live music stage in Oakland! - The Hot Toddies
The Uptown has several spaces available to rent for private events for groups from 40-300 guests. Full buy-outs are also possible for groups 100+. Keep scrolling to CONTACT US for the grand tour and a quote!

The vip mezzanine offers a stellar view overlooking the bar and stage for private parties and happy hours of 40-60 guests and includes a photobooth. We can provide DJs, catering and offer bottle service to make your next birthday party or company happy hour a raging success.

The main venue room includes a full stage and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems and holds parties of 100-300 guests. From seated dinners to private concerts to company karaoke night, in this flexible space, your next big event can be anything you imagine.

The outdoor patio is perfect for a summer happy hours, birthday parties or even a pop-up dinner for up to 60 guests. Recommended months are May-October for best chances of good weather. We can supply referrals for catering, live music, DJs and even heat lamps if needed!

The bar room is a gem of the Oakland Art Deco revival: featuring a 30ft mahogany bar rescued from the Old Spaghetti Factory in Jack London Square and rumored to have traveled to Oakland through the Panama Canal. Treat your guests to cocktails before a show at the Fox Theater (or plan the most killer after party) with our talented bar staff and local-friendly selection of beers, wines and spirits behind the bar.
