Welcome to Penelope!

We’re a friendly bar/cafe located in beautiful sunny Downtown Oakland on the corner of Clay Street and 11th Street next to It’s a Grind coffee shop.  We specialize in fine spirits (whiskeys, tequilas, rums), specialty beers, and cocktails utilizing fresh seasonal ingredients.

In addition to great drinks, we also offer delicious snacks.

But most of all, we specialize in awesomeness.

Please contact us to reserve our space for your next business party, casual get-together, or just drop on by to say “hi!”
