Angela's Bistro & Bar 2301 Central Ave, Alameda, CA94501 Angela's Bistro serves gourmet Mediterranean cuisine infused with a Californian influence. Ingredients are picked from…More local farmers by the head chef. The bartenders (call them mixologists) follow the same method, using fresh fruits and other ingredients to compose unusual beverages like the "Tuscani-Tini," made of potato vodka, olive juice and bleu-cheese-stuffed olives.
The Churchward Pub 1515 Park St, Alameda, CA94501 The Churchward Pub has all the ingredients for a good time: a roomy taproom, great lighting, a live DJ, happy hours,…More charming bartenders and a gigantic bar top made of brazilian mahogany wood, first installed in 1927. This may seem like your average quiet neighborhood bar in the early evening but don't be deceived, Churchward's Irish spirit is a lively one when the sun sets. The last ingredient, and the most important: a friendly, diverse crowd to keep that spirit alive.
Z's Cocktail Lounge 1403 Encinal Ave, Alameda, CA94501 Z's Cocktail Lounge began mixing drinks and pouring highballs of whiskey back in 1962 when it was known as "Encinal…More Cocktail Lounge." The owners are new, but the classy tap room has been preserved with precision and care. The tap room's carpeting, old mahoganey bartop, well-mannered bartender, and scotch selection stacked to the ceiling give it and old victorian feel. Scotch and whiskey are the favorites here, but there is also a fine selection of tequila, gin and craft beers. Feeling classy? Then come to Z's.
