The Port Bar's BackSide Lounge can hold up to 80 people.  Like The Port Bar itself, we believe it responds to a unique Oakland need, a spot for 40-80 people to gather socially in Uptown with its own bathroom, lighting & sound that's still connected to a cool destination location.

As an Oakland grown, community focused business, The Port Bar encourages nonprofits, political organizations, and other companies to contact us about the use of the space. To date we've hosted 4 members of the United States Congress at once, 1 AirBnB CEO & more drag queens than we can mention. What? We're Oakland, we're diverse like that.

Events directly benefitting LGBT organizations & people may apply for discounted fees. Also, some organizations may apply to be beneficiaries of our monthly "Karaoke for a Cause".


You will need to seek outside vendors to cater food for your event. A list of preferred vendors will be supplied upon request. 

Thank you, and we can't wait for you to dock with us!
