Sit down and enjoy a tropical cocktail at Oakland’s newest bar, Longitude. The historic art deco building (and former home of Disco Volante) has been transformed into an exotic locale, with tiki-style accents and art from around the world. Take a trip thru the extensive collection of international rums and whiskeys while dining on assorted small plates, from a pupu platter to British pub fare (vegetarian options, too). Opens at 4pm on Friday, August 15th, 347 14th Street (at Webster). See you there!
