Heinold's First and Last Chance Saloon

Heinold's: First and Last Chance Saloon. Still standing and serving drinks since 1883.


Dear Friends & Patrons: As of two days ago, Heinolds has been shut down by the Shelter-In-Place order of the Health Officer of Alameda County. You can view the order at http://www.acgov.org/documents/Final-Order-to-Shelter-In-Place.pdf. We'll see you again, hopefully in the near future.
Stay safe out there.

For history buffs, this is the first mandatory closure since April 18, 1906, when Oakland's board of Police and Fire Commissioners ordered every saloon in town to close and the restaurants to stop selling alcohol after the Earthquake that slanted Heinold's floor


Our boys @dasc510 and @kohnichiwa will be representing Heinolds Wednesday, Jan 29th at

Beautiful nectarines at the Jack London Farmers Market last Sunday. Hutch coming at you with another craft cocktail: Mezcal, St. George Spiced Pear Liquor, fresh nectarine. What should we call this one???

Our boy Hutch opening Sunday with a new cocktail of his own craft. Rum, pineapple, strawberry & rosemary. Beautiful ain’t it?? (While supplies last)

One our favorite regulars with one of our famous Sunday Bloody Marys!

Ready for the pouring! Shout out to the homies!

How dreary!

That California sun is SHINING! Come enjoy a beer inside or on our patio and catch some rays!...Don’t worry, we have table umbrellas. :)

Whew! Thanks for coming, everyone! Happy Halloween! 👻 🎃

[08/07/18]   Dear Friends/Family/Patrons, our bar will be closed Mon-Wed so we can reinforce certain features of our building and upgrade the floor behind the bar. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope to see you Thursday!

[08/01/18]   Midori Madonna Wednesday! $3 for a shot of Midori and one song request. The song must be written by, performed by, or featuring Madonna. This offer exists while supplies last, which is already longer than we had hoped. :)

Come on down and enjoy our new Irish Whiskey! A smooth, triple distilled, small batch whiskey with notes of vanilla and a little spice. 🚤⚓️🌻☁️🌥🌤☀️⛱😊✌️

[03/17/18]   Happy St. Patrick's Day, friends! Whatever you end up doing today, please be safe and indulge responsibility.


Today is a big day. The patio is open! Our official opening party will be announced in a couple days. In the mean time, enjoy some drinks in the sun during all of our operable days and hours! A few small changes include no children, smoking, or outside alcohol on our patio.

Also, now that our patio is open, this will be our official page for announcing events and social endeavors. Help us spread the word to our lovely neighbors! See you soon. :)

[08/13/17]   Hello!
We know staying inside with our bar tenders has been exhausting for everyone. Luckily, our patio is under final review by the ABC board. If all goes well, our patio is scheduled to be open sometime between Aug. 13th and Aug. 20th. We will announce a Patio Grand Opening Party shortly after that happens. Thanks for bearing with us through this whole thing. It's been tiring, but we know it will be worth it.

Have a great day, everyone!

[07/21/17]   ATTN Everyone: Patio construction begins July 29th and will only take a couple days!! What does this mean?
Drinks in the sun!
Awesome events!
Higher occupancy!

Also, this is the official Heinolds page for upcoming events, pictures and other fun stuff. :) Cant wait to see you all outside!

This picture was taken back in 1940. It almost looks like it could have been taken yesterday! Can you spot any of the differences?

Heinold's has an official page. We're on the grid! We'll post our own pictures and events here. But! Feel free to post pictures or tag us if you have anything you'd like to share as well.
