First Ever Cocktail Week in Oakland

Submitted by on August 15, 2018 – 8:59 amNo Comment

cocktailThousands of cocktail enthusiasts are expected in Oakland, California, to join local bars, restaurants and distilleries in celebrating the city’s cocktail culture — past and present. The first ever Cocktail Week is set for September 15 through 23, 2018.

Participating bars and restaurants from Oakland, Alameda and Emeryville are challenged with telling the stories of Oakland through cocktails and offering them to cocktail enthusiasts at $10 each throughout the week.

“We’re bringing together the Bay Area community to celebrate Oakland’s unique cocktail heritage and shine the spotlight on the small businesses and people within the industry that help create this culture and community,” says Oakland Cocktail Week and See.Eat.Love. founder Raquel Navarro.

Festivities and events will pay tribute to Oakland institutions old and new while fundraising and spotlighting issues championed by the local chapter of the national non-profit Restaurants Opportunity Center (ROC the Bay).

Oakland Cocktail Week currently includes participation from the following venues: Ramen Shop, Hopscotch, Starline Social Club, Dyafa, Camino, Nido, Alamar, Forbidden Island, The Cat House, Cosecha, Drexl, Bardo, Fort Green, Kon-Tiki, Make Westing, Mari at Angela’s, The Miranda, Oakland Spirits Co., Plum Bar, Spice Monkey, Julie’s, Copper Spoon, Bar Cesar, Lake Chalet, and Umami Mart.

The Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC) of the Bay Area is a worker center that brings together restaurant workers, employers and consumers to create just and dignified workplaces for all restaurant workers. ROC the Bay seeks to transform and lift-up the Bay Area’s restaurant industry by eliminating exploitation and discrimination based on race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, immigration status, age, and ability. ROC provides training for career growth in areas such as bartending skills and ESL classes.
