East Bay Date Spots & Ideas: Oakland Date Ideas, Berkeley Date Spots, Alameda Restaurants

Oakland has seen a renaissance in nightlife, beer and restaurants like no other place in the Bay Area. Berkeley is great for younger crowds from the UC Berkeley campus.

These two areas along with others have catapulted the East Bay as a destination for all to experience. The East Bay Area offers an incredible number of options for dates and interests of all kinds and is now a destination for people in SF and Marin as well as the South Bay.

In the past 5 years, there have been a number of places that have surfaced around the area as well as existing businesses that have catered to a growing younger demographic of customers as well as those eager to explore places around them that crave fresh food, more craft beers, quality cocktails and social environments.

Add to that some incredible hiking trails and amazing views outdoors and there are plenty of options at your fingertips to enjoy your day or evening.

In terms of density, you will be hard-pressed to find more accessible things to do and see than around the UC Berkeley Campus, Uptown Oakland and Jack London Square areas of the East Bay.

Each has its own charm and distinct flavor but these are the top areas to explore and wander if you are unfamiliar with or new to town or want options for a long day date.
