  • Classic UC Berkeley spot with the fish bowls and dance floor. They also let me in for free since it was the weekend of my 21st bday :')
  • Classic across-the-street college dive bar - $35 fishbowls with a variety of flavors (peach is yummy).
  • Nice and quiet in the afternoon
  • Kip's cleaned up its act! I mean, it's still a dive, but they have a solid craft beer selection and serviceable pub grub. Can get fratty, but is relaxed in the early evening.
  • Trivia night Tuesday. Pretty crappy service. Ran out of food early. Bartenders ignore you.
  • Pretty good beer, but their cocktail Green Kipper tasted like medicine syrup. They have a decent performance-style karaoke in the inner corner.
  • No more chicken and waffle. Sad face.
  • The chicken and waffle is delicious
  • don't forget to spin the wheel!
  • Typical college bar. Nothing fancy, good place to unwind after class. Bouncers are always on the lookout for people with out of state ID's, they think it's fake! (2 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • One of Berkeley's classiest establishments for the college aged crowd.
  • Use your FiveStars card to earn 1 free drink or $5 off your purchase!
