The Stork Club Oakland is one of the Bay area's longest running entry-level venues for bands starting out, playing the area for the first time, or seasoned veterans who want to bust one out for old time's sake.
It features a full bar separate from the dance floor /stage area, a gaming room & outdoor smoking area. it has it's own custom designed sound system & mic collection adequate enough to cover most performer requirements. it's very much a blue-collar, family run operation that takes pride in serving the local community as many years as it has & is often compared to NYC's CBGB.
The Stork Club has a fairly broad-minded booking policy that embraces a wide variety of styles & genres that reflect the diversity of Oakland itself.
that being said, Hip Hop, Trad Jazz, Blues, Soul, R&B or Country acts should look elsewhere as the crowd doesn't show up much for these sort of shows here
