Festivities kick off with a screening of the not-to-be-missed documentary Town Spirit: A Tribute to Oakland’s Enduring Bar Spirit, and there’s plenty more fun with virtual events like a challenge to reinterpret the classic Mai Tai and a commemorative cocktail glass design competition.

As bars and restaurants struggle to stay afloat during the pandemic, Oakland Cocktail Week is devoting a whole month to fundraising, with all corporate donations and proceeds going to the Oakland Indie Alliance’s Covid recovery fund. Grants up to $10K will be given to local businesses within the alliance, with priority to BIPOC-owned businesses.
