This is just a quick sidebar, as I am sure we will mention this bar during the next review we do anywhere near Ferndale.
Master P and I stopped into the newest Ferndale drinking establishment last night just for one quick drink.
You may not have heard of The Oakland because I do not think they are advertising, on purpose!
The concept here is hidden speakeasy. The door says something about art supplies. But once you get inside, OMG this place is so freakin cool. Its dark, swanky and crammed with antique-looking furniture and chandeliers. The prohibition era cocktails are like nothing I've ever seen. I mean, we have mentioned places with some similar type drinks, but you have GOT to see this. The bartender as multiple bottles of fresh-squeezed juices and house-made concoctions. There are mysterious dropper bottles of things that he meticulously counts out drops into the shaker. The garnish is artfully flourished. If you go, I recommend you sit at the bar so that you can witness the work that goes into your drink. And the drinks were absolutely delicious.
Find it if you can! I'll give you a hint, it is the location where Nami used to reside. I will not be keeping this place a secret. Tell them you heard about them here, they like to know how their word is spreading!
