“Luka's Taproom & Lounge...”
Reviewed January 11, 2009

Luka's Taproom & Lounge is a hip hangout in the ever expanding mid-Broadway scene. Oakland doesn't offer much in the way of Restaurant Bar scenes, but Luka's appears to be bucking the trend thanks to its dedicated and local patrons. I've heard that some of the Warrior players stop by now and again.

If you're into Belgian beers, this is also a great reason to visit. The drinks prices are reasonable.

In terms of star quality, dinner service is very middle of the road - Not a high 3, and certainly not a low 3. Lots of people order the marquee french fries and special mayonnaise. I'd say order that with one of those Belgian brews if you're coming to the restaurant hungry or expect to hang out for a few hours.

While you're chowing down on those fries consider the menu, you could be tempted. The food won't knock your socks off unless you order the garlicky clams. I'm just saying, the social aspect of Luka's is far more appealing.

The young hip crowd start to show up around 10PM. Good times to be had, but not by ALL.

Reviewed September 14, 2008

Great place to hang out w/the afterwork crowd in downtown Oakland. This is one of my closest friends favorite regular place for cocktails and noshing. After trying out their belgian frits and getting a sampler of their specialty drinks, I'd come back. Great crowd and really cool bartendars.
