Oakland Metro Operahouse

Map & Directions 630 Third St.
Oakland, CA 94607


SF Weekly's Description

If the word "operahouse" makes you think of Charles Garnier's opulent theatrical monument in Paris, think again - this multi-use performance space is located inside an adapted industrial warehouse on the edge of modern Jack London Square. The large, wide-open main room houses a sizeable stage in the rear, with a small bar serving drinks to legal-age patrons in the front corner, while some events also expand into a second side room with its own separate bar area. Most of the musical events happening here - which include everything from heavy metal and hardcore punk shows to, yes, opera - are open to all ages.

    Some of the boy's bathroom stalls do not have doors. Really bad if you're trying to poop. On the other hand, if you enjoy conversation while shitting, this is the place!

    Best place for live music in the East Bay -- and they have a grand f'ing piano on stage, a rare treat. The East Bay eXpress is doing some booking there now too.

    Lots of nearby street parking. Friendly, laid back staff. Cheap drinks! Lots of bathrooms, no soap. Cool place.
