Foursquare Tips

  • So much history here. It's been open since 1883. I'm probably sitting where Jack London wrote Call of the Wild. You have to go here.
  • Stick your business card on the wall.
  • Step "down" into a bar that has more historical items than some museums, sit at the table Jack London wrote literary legend "Call of the Wild" and do it all while enjoying a cold beer or a cocktail.
  • The floor is slanted from the 1906 earthquake. Be careful with your drink when sitting at the bar.
  • Dog friendly
  • I got stung by a wasp! The bartender took care of me.
  • Don't mind the washroom camera or alligator
  • Bring your dog and sit on the patio or just bring your puppy over for a sip of water at the light post.
  • For a bit of history, stop by and grab a drink. Great outdoor seating, too, but have at least one at the historic bar.
  • Read all the signs behind the bar and laugh!
  • Thursday nights come see the "Sea Shanty Guys"
  • Great outdoor seating, good beers on tap and super friendly staff. Definitely check it out.
  • So much personality. It's tipped because of an earthquake in the early 20th century.
  • Apparently the oldest bay Area bar?
  • Tim is awesome! It's a museum with alcohol :)
  • Basically the McSoreley's of the Bay Area.
  • Check out the story of Heinold's....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSxoE2bM1tE
  • This place has a back-to-the-past atmosphere where you can order a packaged snack and enjoy a Bloody Mary made with the house mix and a lager from Linden Street, an Oakland microbrewery.
  • Quaint; ok for a drink
