Emporium Oakland, we are the best arcade bar + live events venue in the city. As the sister site of Emporium San Francisco, we have a large collection of pinball games, arcade games, foosball, skeeball, and more. Our bar features craft beer on tap, an innovative cocktail program, and a full bar. We feature live DJs for those that would rather dance than play, as well as the game tournaments you'd expect.

Book your next group outing here, whether it is a few friends celebrating a birthday or for your whole company party.
