Oakland, California
$$

Adding to Uptown Oakland’s ever-expanding entertainment repertoire is the Starline Social Club, a 19th-century meeting hall that encompasses a restaurant, bar, and grand ballroom tricked out to accommodate punk shows, hip-hop acts, or stand-up comedians like Hannibal Buress. On the food front, a Boot & Shoe Service alum is serving up inspired global bar bites such as barbecued pork bánh mì with liver pâté, and black cod rillettes with toast. Crimson booth seating and overgrown palm fronds add to the restaurant’s vintage vibe, and a detour downstairs is a must; craft cocktails are served there in the original 1893 saloon.
