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.)

Penni H. booked a birthday party for 40 people
I could not have selected a better venue for my birthday party. Many guests told me how much they loved the space and enjoyed the entire event. Throughout the experience, from my first visit, to follow-up phone calls, to the day of the party, working with Monty was a pleasure. The Urban Wine Bar is a very cool space that comfortably accommodates up to 35 people, with plenty of room to move around, arrange and serve food, and have guests sit or stand and chat. I highly recommend this venue and its host.

Scott H. booked an event for 20 people
So glad we found this space! We hosted an intimate 15 person wine and dinner party for friends. Had a Thai food spot from Berkeley and crushed a case that Monte selected for us, and just had a great friend catch up over the holiday break. Will book again for sure.
Liam S. booked a video shoot for 4 people
The space is really cool, very versatile for events, or as a set for a shoot, and Monty is very friendly and helpful with whatever you need. Will definitely be back!
