Cafe Van Kleef is Uptown Oakland’s beloved little bar; a narrow and cozy feast for the eyes and ears nestled on buzzing Telegraph Avenue. A mini explosion of colors, lights and random knick knacks lining the walls befits the eclectic blues, jazzs and rock tunes. Don’t forget to try the bar’s signature fresh-squeezed greyhound with its massive wedge of fruit on the rim.
