What we're about

Welcome to Oakland Happy Hour.

We meet most Thursday evenings and visit a different clubs, bars and pubs, near BART, and in Oakland. Our target age range is 30's and 40's.


we do also travel to other Bay Area locations in the East Bay like Berkeley and Alameda.

We sometimes have social events having nothing to do with happy hour.

We also occasionally have events on other days of the week, and

we do allow people of all ages to join.

We're kind of free flowing like that with very little structure and very few rules. This is meant to be a fun relaxed atmosphere. There are none of the following:

No membership dues,

No name tags,

No opportunists with sales pitches,

No a person taking role with a clip board and

No giant banners or signs.

We're just there to meet and have fun. It is not necessary to arrive on time for our events; arrive when you can. We do ask that you please RSVP if you might be attending so that we can alert the bar as to how many people to expect to be there and so I can try to negotiate specials with future venues. Our numbers are our discounts and the Oakland Happy Hour is all about discounts when we can get them.

Please be clear, we are not a singles meetup. This group is about meeting new friends and having a good time. Although I do know that people have started dating after meeting in this group, please do not come with the expectation of "hooking-up." If I get enough complaints, cougars and cheese-balls will be booted.

As mentioned before, we have no signage. Please try to look for the Organizer on your first visit. We never put up a sign but are always easy to find with very little effort. you just have to ask. I have found that people in this group are incredibly friendly and very easy to talk to. You just have to show up and order a drink.

Occasionally an organizer tip box may come out to help pay for the website maintenance. Please feel free to contribute only if you had a good time and it will not impede the purchase of your next drink.
