I will attend a concert at the Greek Theater on friday. I am not familiar with the area. Do you have a recommendation for a place for drinks and bites?
Thank you !

    There's nothing in the immediate area. Are you driving or taking BART?

      Try Cesar on Shattuck. Good food (tapas), drinks but it gets busy and crowded.

      More casual - Jupiter (pizza, beer), Triple Rock (brew pub)

      All these are on Shattuck Ave, approximately 1 mile from the Greek and very close to about 5 blocks from downtown Berkeley BART. There's also a bunch of cheap eats/student places south of campus...about .5 miles...but not drink oriented.

        Hmm, drinks and after a show, that does narrow down the options. It's an early show so Revival might still be open. Gather and Five are open till 10. Anh Hong is open till 10:30. Meridian is open till 1am.

          Meridian is currently closed for construction so I'd scratch that off the list.

        Henry's Pub is w/in walking distance, 1 block south of campus.

          And the bar snacks at Henry's are solid. The food is much improved under the current chef.

            Oh yeah, Eddie Blyden is the chef these days. Definitely not your father's Henry's Pub.
