I love this whole area. You got dive bars and fancy bars, you have cheap eats and break the bank eats, movies and dance lessons, sushi and southern bbq. It has everything! And just walking around is great, the whole area. Wineries, breweries, meat places, vegetarian places, you name it. I take my family here a lot.

Get your drinks at Haven and sweets at Miette. If the weather is nice, chill outside with a beer at Heinold's. Farmers' market is on Sunday.

Tourist-centric restaurants and businesses. Watched a seagull attack a pigeon and then drown it and eat it here while waiting for the ferry. It's brutal down here.

Quite a few places to eat and things to do like watching movies. There's a multi-level parking garage across the street too. Just be aware of your surroundings.

Since a couple of well known eateries disappeared couple of years back the scene hasn't pick up yet. Come here on weekdays from 10am-5pm is deserted only a few people around. Weekends is a little better mainly because of entertainment (Plank or Regal Cinema). On Sundays there is a farmers market in the common area. Be warn rampant train barreling down track with horn blaring.

2/21/15 This is probably one of the prettiest parts of Oakland - Jack London Square is right on the water and it's fun to walk along the shops and look at boats. They also have a lot going on - and a great weekly email telling about all their fun activities. Last weekend they had Tall Ships - a couple of large boats that are being shown there for the next couple of weeks as they make their way up and down the coast. You can tour the boats (only the upper deck, since the crew lives below) and they do a battle between the two boats which you can be onboard during (for $75). Only one of the ships was harbored when we walked by, but it was cool to check out. There is a small park for kids, and for adults there is the new Plank bar/restaurant with bowling, arcade, and more! Restaurants, bars, music, desserts. Pretty much everything needed to make a great afternoon or romantic date. The Jack of All Trades market and the Farmers Market take place on Saturdays and Sundays - really fun to check out!
