Oakland's Art Deco jewelbox with a wonderfully opulent lobby that welcomes you to what are generally more staid attractions than you might find down the way at the Fox Oakland. This place has sparkle.

Well, this may be too late, but if you like to dress up, dress up and if you like to go casual, go casual. It's like that. Maybe a bit more casual in the balcony.
