Recommended Dining, before the Ball
The Art Deco Preservation Ball features dancing, entertainment, no-host cocktails, and complimentary light hors d'oeuvres, but does not include dinner. There are a number of attractive Oakland restaurants for dinner before the Ball. They tend to be busy on Saturday nights, so be sure to make a reservation! You may have your own favorites; we'll name just a few!
