The Neighborhood

Oakland Civic Center

Civic Center brings you the best of all worlds being surrounded by Chinatown, Old Town, and Uptown. Between the delicious food, great local brews, and ample sun at Lake Merritt, you won’t have to go far from home to have a great time.
So what’s for dinner?

With the amount of award winning restaurants in the area, choosing what to eat might become the hardest part of your day. Grab some of the hand pulled noodles at Shan Dong  and pair them with a rare cask release from The Trappist. Or head over to Swan’s Market and choose between the gourmet options in the modern food hall. Whatever you choose, it’s sure to be delicious.

The easiest commute

Being just blocks from both the 12th Street and Lake Merritt BART stations, you’ll find yourself in the unique position of being able to take any of the BART lines between SF and the East Bay. Plus with the Jack London Port within walking distance you can treat yourself to the occasional ferry.
