Alive Again

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.

The Continental Club is the best restaurant in Oakland for me. This place is a solid 10/10 for the drinks, food and the atmosphere. Great attention to details always amazes me, and this place doesn’t disappoint.

Great bar in Oakland, great music, amazing cocktails and the food is incredible! Can't expect more from a nightclub and music venue! Well located in the heart of Oakland. Don't miss out on the rooftop terrace.

We threw an incredible product launch party at the Continental Club. It was an amazing experience from start to finish working with the team. The venue is absolutely perfect and the history is insane.
