It’s Not Flying, It’s Falling With Style

Let's hit up the Double Standard! Don't let this bar's rough exterior deceive you. Beyond the peeling paint façade is a backyard patio that's easy to overlook. Sip craft cocktails, like the Prelude to a Kiss (strawberry-infused gin, basil eau de vie, lemon, agave, angostura bitters & cracked white pepper), under a canopy of redwood trees before we head to the Great Wall of Oakland at 7:45pm sharp for a FREE vertical dance performance!

Gliding around, dancing on walls, duping gravity – Bandaloop, a vertical dance company managed by Oakland Fridays’ own, Krystal Harfert, is performing their flawless choreography of aerial jumps & dreamy backflips that makes the dancers appear as if they are defying the laws of gravity themselves! Her team, using ropes and harnesses, glides across vertical surfaces, sometimes hundreds of feet high. Their strange sideways dance suggests elements of circus arts in one moment, synchronized swimming in another.

The mesmerizing, free-falling movements of the Bandaloop dancers will captivate your entire attention to the point you won’t even realize that this week, Oakland Fridays is on a Thursday.
