Brotzeit Lokal

1000 Embarcadero, Oakland, CA 94606

MICHELIN Guide’s Point of View: Right off Embarcadero and just a few minutes south of Jack London Square, Brotzeit Lokal looks and feels like a classic German beer hall, albeit with great views of the water. It's a casual, convivial place with long tables and benches that beg for groups to connect over beer and Bavarian pretzels (served with mustard or cheese spreads, naturally).


Getting there: From Oakland Jack London Square Station, walk 26 minutes along Embarcadero West and Embarcadero or take rideshare.


Noka Ramen and Bar

90 Franklin Street, Oakland, CA 9460

This trendy spot serves up artisan Japanese noodles along with a full bar featuring signature hand crafted cocktails. The restaurant’s quirky decor includes Power Ranger-themed tiki drinks, anime playing in the background, and on Fridays, you can find staff dressed up as Power Rangers. You’ll definitely want to check out this spot for its unique atmosphere and top-quality ramen dishes.


Getting there: From Jack London Station, walk 5 minutes along Embarcadero West or 2nd Street to reach 90 Franklin street in the plaza.
