A dear friend and her Bourbon loving husband shared this favorite local bar with me last year and it's become our official venue for get together gatherings in the East Bay, ever since. In the words of their owners, Prizefighter has certainly been able to create world-class cocktails in a casual and fun environment.
Though a punching bag and several other boxing-inspired works of art, adorn the walls- this establishment got its name from an Eels song on the Hombre Lobo album that the founders love.
Most days evenings you'll also see a food truck or two parked at the entrance of Prizefighter and you're encouraged to grab a bite and bring it inside or out on the back deck, to enjoy with your beverage of choice.
If you're looking for a great after work bar in the Berkeley, Oakland or Emeryville area, Prizefighter could very well be your new favorite.
