About Starline Social Club
STARLINE SOCIAL CLUB RENTALS
Housed in a historic three story Victorian building in uptown Oakland, the Starline Social Club is a bar, restaurant and performance venue. Our bar and restaurant are open daily from 5pm-2am, serving dinner from 5pm-midnight. In our second story ballroom we host public performances and parties. We offer rental opportunities in our ballroom, in our street level bar and restaurant, and our speak easy style back room. We host private events such as fundraisers, corporate parties, conferences, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, rehearsal dinners, bar mitzvahs, and dance parties for any occasion. We offer in house bar and catering service for all types of events. Please inquire at [email protected] for a more detailed estimate. We can’t wait to work with you.
The second story ballroom features a newly refinished original sprung wood floor, a hallmark of many dance halls built in the 19th century, north-west facing windows, original booth seating, a
stage, a balcony, a full bar, 25 ft ceilings with an attic above, and ample green room space on the
third floor. White walls with black trim and wood accents, and the elegant, simple details
evoke a different era, while acting as a blank canvas for renters, wedding parties and
stylists to transform the space for any occasion. The ballroom has all the features of a
modern midsize music venue, proudly offering use of a Meyer Sound System, as well as
advanced lighting and projection capacity.
The Ballroom can be rented for daytime events like conferences, off-site work days, and meetings, and also for daytime weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and lunch-time receptions. We offer breakfast, lunch, snacks, and happy hours for daytime rentals.
STARLINE SOCIAL CLUB (DOWNSTAIRS BAR/RESTAURANT)
The cavernous restaurant and bar downstairs features original pressed tin ceilings and plaster walls, and the newer additions of a curved asymmetrical wood bar, booth seating, and a plethora of palms, ferns and cacti. With sun set light beaming in, the space transports guests to another time and place, yet at its heart is characteristic of Oakland and the artists that dreamed up the renovation of this 1893 Oakland treasure. Relics hang on the wall from the years when this space was an Odd Fellows Hall; bartenders blast eclectic music that spans the last 100 years.
