This space operates as a licensed Wine Bar at times, or as an event space at other times. Open and roomy, yet private 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 we do have a Wine license, 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. We have a 55 inch widescreen television and a 150" projector screen. If you have something in particular you want to show, please get us the audio/video material in advance so we can test it. 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 should be able to work out something. Send us a message. Number of guests: here are some guidelines - Mostly Standing (company mixer, launch party, casual birthday party): 45 Standing and Sitting (small appetizer plates, holiday cocktail party, anniversary party) 30-35 Everyone Sitting (sit-down formal dinner, seated company presentation, paint and sip party) 20-25 This past year we hosted a sitting/standing Holiday Dinner for 50 people. Not quite over-crowded, but certainly cozy. (See pictures for an idea of how it went.)

Michelle T. booked a gender reveal party for 25 people
Very nice space! I booked it for a gender reveal and in all honesty, probably didn’t read the listing closely enough to understand the amenities and restrictions, but the hosts were still accommodating to the best of their abilities.
Tim F. booked a christmas party for 45 people
The wine bar is in an extremely unassuming location but an absolute hidden gem. The venue is cozy, classy, and a very pleasant place to hang out. The event went extremely well thanks to Monty (the owner) and his staff who worked hard helping me setup and clean up after the event. I have nothing but positive things to say about the experience and am grateful for finding this place. It's open throughout the week for drinks, so stop by in the evening and get to know Monty - he's a charming, intellectual and hard working dude.

The space is a hidden gem in West Oakland. Cool bubble chairs and couches. Cozy space was perfect for our 30 guests party. There are tables and chairs to use, and parking was pretty easy. Monty was very accommodating and easy to work with, and his bartender for our event was so awesome and fun! Thanks again!
