Neighborhood

Perched atop UC Berkeley’s campus on the edge of North Berkeley, the Greek Theatre is at the center of the East Bay with spectacular views of San Francisco’s skyline. Our Berkeley community comes with a rich history of activism, grounded in places like the iconic Telegraph Avenue and Sproul Plaza. The ever-growing communities of Rockridge, Claremont, Solano, and the Gourmet Ghetto are all testament to the flourishing food and culture in the city. Today Berkeley’s hotel & dining scene exists as a harmonious pairing of the old and new: classics like The Claremont Hotel, Chez Panisse and The Cheeseboard Collective are forever favorites, and more recent additions like Comal and Tupper & Reed are cementing their place as modern classics. Here’s a list of our current favorite spots to stop in before or after a show.
