Another great charm of Oakland. Not only you can see Jack London's cabin but also great restaurants and the marina. Must go place.

They have a range of restaurants and bars here, plus a bowling alley, which makes this a place you can stay all evening.

Jack London Square is a nice looking area with some wonderful views of the bay, but there is just not much to do here. Most of the restaurants were closed the Wednesday we visited. There is a bowling alley and bar here, but just not enough things to do.

I grew up in Oakland and have been enamored of the city my whole life, the aura, the sports teams, the restaurants and the beauty are astounding. I've moved away, but was back in town for a family event, and we stayed at the Waterfront Hotel, and were able to stroll among the street vendors along the Square and keep... More

There's so many interesting little spots in Jack London Square. You can stay at the hotel, drink and eat at all the restaurants or even just go for a stroll! This place is great for everyone, be sure to stop by the Marina as you may see some pretty beautiful sailboats!

Took a stroll through here on a warm and sunny Sunday and it was beautiful. The farmers market was excellent and the beautiful views and boats on display created a great atmosphere.

Small little port spot on the south of Oakland, yet within a short walk of downtown. Filled with places to eat and drink, wine tasting and some light shopping, seems almost out of place given the industrial nature surrounding the port. If you are in the area and want to have a wander around...worth a visit.

I hang out in Jack London regularly. It's the ferry landing, has a movie theater, farmers market, festivals, movies under the stars, Blue Bottle Coffee, the produce warehouses, Ben &Jerry's, Ghazal Indian restaurant for lunch, and some chains interspersed with local businesses. Plenty of places to sit and people watch. The original Oakland bar is here, along with half of... More

Numerous food to choose from. Nice scenery. Some days have outdoor market. Whether you grab a drink from a dive bar in the produce District (Merchants) or have a glass of wine overlooking the bay there is lots to choose from.
