1437 Park Street, Alameda
Town Tavern offers a social environment with great drinks and bites. Specialty cocktails lean on East Bay spirits, including those from Wright & Brown Distilling and Oakland Spirits Co. The small plate menu includes fried-to-order chicharrones, bacon pierogi, bison poutine, New Orleans-style barbecued shrimp, and pork belly sliders loosely inspired by Taiwanese gua bao.
The 49-seat space is family-friendly until 10:00pm. Town Tavern then remains open late for the 21+ crowd.
