Around The Neighborhood

Vibrant and eclectic, Temescal is leading the Oakland renaissance. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Oakland, Temescal is full of innovative and diverse people creating small, independent, thoughtfully-curated shops, restaurants and services.

Temescal is one of the Bay Area’s most connected locations. It’s easy to walk, bike or ride wherever you need to go. The MacArthur BART station is the main transit hub for the entire system and can get you to downtown Oakland and Berkeley in a matter of minutes as well as connect you to both OAK and SFO airports.

Food from all over the globe, bars with free popcorn and some pretty unconventional places to duck into. This is what Temescal is all about. Just head out down Telegraph Ave and if you can’t find anything you like then try opening your eyes.
