“…old-school coolness…”

“There’s an old-school coolness to Binny’s, a new, Old Oakland cocktail bar and lounge, featuring classic drinks and steak on a large, square plate (among other drink-worthy bites). Look for the beckoning neon sign.”

“This new bar/lounge was an awesome find.”

“Binny’s has more to offer than its decor, of course. But I must admit that the dim, clubby decor of the Old Oakland bar — which quietly opened in September, and has been humming along ever since —  offers a welcome change from the “Miami Vice” mirror/fern/pastel look that’s dominating Oakland’s restaurant and bar scene.”

“A night at Binny’s is an all around five-star experience!”

“Binny’s is destined to be one of THE places to go in the East Bay. It has an attractive ambiance with a designer’s touch while at the same time proving a relaxing atmosphere. The bar itself is beautiful and the variety of specialty drinks served at it are perfectly crafted and delicious! But what I love the most is the fantastically delicious food that comes out of Binny’s kitchen. A night at Binny’s is an all around five-star experience!”
