As many have already discovered in the few short-weeks since its opening, there’s a new and unique establishment open in downtown Oakland – Sipside Lounge. This new establishment offers locals, visitors and second homeowners alike a great setting that provides a respite from the “realities” of day-to-day life via a relaxing, classic environment.
A music-themed lounge located in the heart of historic downtown Oakland, Sipside Lounge resides in a restored 100+ year old building. It features a relaxed and unique environment to enjoy beers with Maryland roots, sophisticated wines by the glass and bottle, and select specialty spirits and classic cocktails. You’ll be surrounded by music and memorabilia designed to take you back to bygone eras in order to “pause” and “unwind” while meeting new friends, including their amazing staff.
Sipside is adjacent to her sister enterprise, Flipside Sounds, which features vintage and new vinyl records and much more. Flipside offers a perfect before- or after- destination to take in classic posters, records and other memorabilia sure to bring back memories of special bands, concerts and songs. We have found that the memorabilia and decorations of these adjoining destinations, combined with the fine wine, beer and cocktails available at Sipside, make for a very enjoyable experience.
Owners Pat and Barb Frac have a lot to be proud of as their newest venture takes off. They currently have a number of “special events” planned, including a St. Paddy’s Day Celebration scheduled for Sunday March 17th from 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm. They will have live entertainment, Irish-themed snacks and some special giveaways. They also plan on keeping Flipside Sounds open later to accommodate those guests that wish to visit next-door to peruse vinyl records and other cool offerings.
Sipside Lounge is located at 119 S. 2nd Street in historic downtown Oakland and can be reached at 301.533.2960
