Housed in a historic three story Victorian building in Uptown Oakland, the Starline Social Club is a bar, restaurant and performance venue. Our unique and historical building is one-of-a-kind, a true Oakland treasure. We have a versatile space, three separate venues available for private rentals, and provide in-house food and bar service, audiovisual service, and production and styling options.
Traditional to edgy, relaxed to formal, 30 people to 450 people, we host a wide variety of diverse and creative events, open to all ages. Some parties take place in the second floor ballroom, some smaller groups love the dim romantic speakeasy feel of the Explorers Club. Some have cocktail hour in the downstairs bar before dinner upstairs. We are happy to host more traditional wedding parties with sit down dinners and a first dance, and also the less traditional- those who just want to have a great party with music and food, or those that want to rethink what a commitment ceremony can be all together. Some couples hop on the Starline stage and get married in front of their adoring families and friends, others have ceremonies in the many beautiful parks, hills, mountains, beaches and forests that surround Oakland, and then come to the Starline to party the night away. There are lots of possibilities as to how to use the building, and we are always open to new ideas.
