Off the Ferry: 6 Things to Do in Jack London Square

Jack London Square

Oakland’s Jack London Square is a fantastic destination for food, shopping, and entertainment. Here’s a list of our top spots.

1.  Catch the Sunday morning farmer’s market (and consider taking a free yoga class or nutrition tour). On the other six days of the week, grab a funky saloon-style brunch at the brothel-cum-restaurant, The Fat Lady.

2. Take a shoreline stroll along the Bay Trail.

3. Visit Jack London’s historic log cabin.

4. Dive into a fresh catch at Scott’s Seafood, or dine down-homestyle at the newly opened Home of Chicken and Waffles.

5. Laugh it up at Miss Pearl’s Jam House.

6. Listen to world class jazz at Yoshi’s.

Take the Blue and Gold Fleet ferry to Jack London Square, or take BART to 12th St. station in Oakland and catch the free Broadway (B) Shuttle to Jack London Square.
