This is a beautiful theater in downtown Oakland. It's an easy walk from several big hotels and has plenty of food/bars nearby. The staff is very friendly. It's a beautiful theater inside.

We saw Duran Duran here in July, what a fabulous place! The bar was limited, but there were no long lines.Could have used a few moth bathrooms for the size of the venue, but they were clean and accessible. Tickets were pretty pricey though!
