NOTE:  As of April 15, 2013, there is an active labor dispute at this venue. The workers walked off the job and it is our understanding that they are asking people not to patronize this store until this dispute is resolved. Here is a link to their statement:


Lanesplitter has two locations which serve beer, both walkable from BART stations. The other one is in North Berkeley. This one is a pleasant motorcycle-themed pub in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland, an up and coming restaurant area. They make popular pizzas and offer 10 taps, plus usually have a craft beer served.  Typical draft offerings may include Racer Five IPA, something from the elusive Moonlight Brewing Company, and usually Russia River’s Damnation.

Extras: Be cautious while walking in the MacArthur area. You may prefer to catch a shuttle or take a cab.

Map to Lanesplitter

less than half a mileWalk out of the BART on 40th st. to Telegraph, left on Telegraph for about half a mile to the corner of 48th. You could also take any bus headed up Telegraph, however you are likely to see cabs before you see a bus.  Note that MacArthur BART – a BART station which has seen late night crime – can be intimidating after dark. This route is clearly not the most scenic walk in Oakland, and it can be rather desolate. You might choose to walk it by daylight, and then take a cab or a bus back to BART later.
