Sidebar is great mellow place to meet friends for cocktails and dinner. I like the salads but the mussels are also a crowd favorite. Every Monday night is their mussels extravaganza, Mussels Madness! This is a neighborhood place that's a friendly and mellow hangout. Sit at the bar or grab a table, it's easy going for solo dining or gathering with friends. Cocktail specials are inventive and delicious. Overlooks the beautiful Lake Merritt with it's "necklace" of lights. Head over to Oaktown's Sidebar!
