This space operates as a Wine Bar at times, and as an event space at other times. Open, roomy and cozy, people often comment that it feels like an intimate lounge in someone's private residence. The Prescott area of Oakland is fast becoming a hip trendy place for urban professionals looking to be close to San Francisco, but far from the fog, the traffic, the crowds and the prices. Close to West Oakland BART, Jack London Square, the Bay Bridge, Bay Street and Downtown Oakland. Since this is an actual licensed Wine Bar, guests may want to structure their event around a wine-related theme. The host is a well-known Winemaker and Wine Expert, which may offer unique aspects and possibilities involving wine tasting seminars, themed wine selections or wine education. But, of course, there is no obligation to have wine play any part in the event. It just happens to be here, should you wish to include it. For company off-site meetings, we've offered blending and tasting seminars to end the day on a light, casual and friendly note. On Friday and Saturday nights, we are usually open for our regular customers, but if you really want to reserve the space on one of those evenings, we may be able to work out something. Send us a message. Regarding using the space for Birthday parties, Bachelor/Bachelorette parties, Wild Celebrations, etc., this may not be the best place. Given our proximity to residential units, we need to keep the noise down. The later it gets, the lower the volume needs to be. Don't expect to do a lot of dancing. But for an afternoon Bridal Shower, a fundraiser, an evening dinner party or a promotional wine-mixer, this place is perfect. If you require seating and tables for company seminars and educational events, we can move the couches and the bubble chair out of the way, for a larger open space in which to set up.
No smoking, no pets without prior approval. No outside alcohol allowed unless cleared by host in advance. Guests may bring food, or have it catered - we do not have a commercial kitchen and we cannot provide anything more than peanuts and pretzels - unfortunately that's the law. But we do offer simple kitchen amenities for warming and serving prepared food. The space is attached to a residential building, so music and noise must be kept to a reasonable level. Guests are not allowed access to the private residential areas of the complex. Although we may be serving wine, children under 21 may be allowed with adequate supervision if cleared with the host in advance. The host, or a representative, will be on site at all times. No outside music or sound systems are allowed without permission from the host.
I must first thank Monty and his team for being amazing host. Most importantly the venue was rented out for our video podcast and it was perfect the set up is extremely beautiful and intimate which is what we were looking for. Monty and his team made sure we were comfortable and accommodated us the entire shoot time. We love this venue and the set up. Parking was the only issue but our team found parking a little further down from the venue. We will definitely be booking in the future. Thank you guys.
This space is so awesome. From the booking to the day of the event, Monty made it perfectly pleasant the stresses of organizing a small wedding reception. The wines and sparkling wines were amazing, the space is incredible, just perfect for our small cerimony. Thank you so much!
Great space. The staff was very hospitable, and helped us have a successful event. Ambiance is perfect for private parties, and socializing. Monty was very accommodating, and easy to work with!!
