Once called “the coliseum of Oakland blues,” and then falling nearly silent for decades, the Continental Club gets a new life and a grand re-opening just when the community needs music and laughter most.
Originally opening its doors in 1945, the Continental Club is Oakland’s oldest and largest nightclub, hosting performances of some of the greatest talents in music and comedy in its heyday: from Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, and Richard Pryor to local blues greats like Jimmy McCracklin.
Signature cocktails, fine wines, beers, and spirits sure to awaken your senses. Ask our bartenders about seasonal specials.
