Close to many public transportation choices, the community is famous for incredible views, across Oakland Bay, of the San Francisco skyline and of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Restaurants

Beautiful views abound with plenty of bay-side dining. Trader Vic’s, with its Polynesian theme and exotic rum drinks laced with gardenias, offers Asian and South Seas cuisine. The tropical atmosphere reflects an earlier era when the restaurant was named Hinky Dink’s and includes original artwork from founder Trader Vic Jules Bergeron, the inventor of the Mai Tai. Try the Indonesian lamb roast cooked in wood-burning oven, and don't miss its famous bongo-bongo soup. Another eatery with great views of the bay, bridges and the San Francisco skyline is The Hong Kong East Ocean Seafood Restaurant. Known for its seafood and handmade dim sum, make sure to also try the seasoned beef and barbecued steamed buns. On a clear day, you can almost see Sausalito. If you are looking for a neighborhood hangout, then the Prizefighter Bar is the place. A small space with nice leather chairs, it features a long shared table and an outdoor patio with heating lamps for the chilly Oakland bay evenings. Prizefighter serves a variety of local beers, exotic cocktails and snacks, although the nearby Rotten City Pizza delivers to the bar with the blessing of the owners. The entrance is through a wood gate on Hollis street.

History

Originally the home of several Native American settlements that fished, hunted and harvested acorns from the oak trees, clams from the mudflats and oysters from the rocky shores (whose shells eventually built a huge mound), the area was finally colonized by Spain in 1776. During the 19th century and into the early 20th century, due to its accessibility by barge or rail, the area became the site of many meatpacking plants that processed cattle raised from on the nearby farms. A section of the community became known as Butchertown, notorious for the rancid and odious smells emanating from the industry. By the Depression, commerce evolved to brothels, speakeasies, gambling houses and racetracks. The early 1980s brought urban renewal with the building of the new marina and mixed-land use of shopping and residential areas.

Transportation

East Bay Public Transportation is provided by the Alameda-Contra Cost Transit District with buses serving Emeryville, Alameda, Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward, Fremont, Newark and Richmond. Bus Rapid Transit connects to San Francisco via dedicated transit way lanes. The Outer Emeryville area is a hub, with nearby rail, air, bus and interstate freeway travel options. The California Zephyr, with its Chicago-to-San Francisco route crossing the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains, and the daily Los Angeles-to-Seattle Coast Starlight, stop at the Amtrak station in Emeryville. Interstate 580 slices north-south through the community with a junction leading to I-580 E to State 24 and I-80W to the Oakland Bay Bridge, just minutes to the south. The Oakland International Airport is 14 miles away, and San Francisco International Airport is 20 miles away. The Bart Station in Oakland is 2.6 miles to the south, just 6 minutes away. The City of Emeryville offers a convenient free shuttle from the commuting hubs to the area’s shopping centers and large apartment complexes.

There are plenty of restrooms and parking. The newly opened Doyle Hollis Park has something for both children and adults, with its enclosed playground for the little ones and plenty of benches for their parents. The area includes a basketball court, picnic areas, an amphitheater and public art created by Masayuki Nagase. Environmentally conscious, the park is landscaped with over 40 native California plant species, captures storm water for its rain gardens, uses recycled mulch and has rubber playground surfaces made from recycled plastic.
