Enter The Trappist. Easy to miss, this mysterious & dark establishment is a timeless oasis from the bustle and boom of Downtown Oakland. A credit to the Old Oakland area, the building is beautifully restored inside and out and has doubled in size since the impressive transformation to European looking bar first began in 2007.
This is a photo of their original bar, but they have since opened the “back bar” which has its own entrance. Both bars are connected by an elegant corridor/seating area in the back.
They maintain a rotating beer list of over 100 brews, specializing in Belgian, Dutch, Scandinavian and American craft options. Their kitchen also serves food 4pm- 11pm every day and from 11am – 3pm M-F.
The Trappist is a delicious and charming experience. It’s definitely one of oaktownman’s top choice bars.
