Legionnaire Saloon

Local sports bar and live events venue. Offers great drinks, live music and pinball.

The Legionnaire Saloon is a two-story bar and event space that is located in the KONO District of Uptown Oakland.

There is a full bar on the first floor that offers a variety of classic and specialty cocktails served to you by an energetic bartender. There is also an excellent selection of draft, bottled, and canned beers to choose from. The Legionnaire has ample bar and table seating. Stop in during happy hour, which lasts from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM every day other than Tuesday and Sunday. On Tuesdays, happy hour runs all day. Sip on your $4 Modelo pint while beating the high score on one of the three pinball machine games located at the back of the first floor. Or, enjoy a round of $5 well drinks with friends or colleagues at one of the booths while playing your favorite songs on the jukebox. You can play as many songs as you’d like for free on the jukebox until 9:00 PM.

The Legionnaire is a great place to watch sports in the neighborhood. Local and national games are always playing on the televisions at the bar. They play UFC fights over a projector on the first floor. On UFC nights, there is a cover charge. The first floor also features a dance floor with a DJ set up. On the weekends, the dance floor gets hot and heavy as locals and visitors tear up the dance floor to house and hip-hop favorites. The second floor hosts a variety of live acts that draw an eclectic crowd. For a small cover fee, you can witness the various talents of local musicians and DJ’s.

Before heading out for the night, get in line to grab a savory street taco. There are always vendors waiting out front to feed you delicious and well portioned cantina style tacos. The upstairs space has a small fully stocked bar, and is available for private events. Consider hosting your birthday or holiday party at this fun location.

While the bar takes credit cards, the live events and tacos are cash only. Parking in the neighborhood is difficult, especially during the weekends. 19th street BART is a short walk away from the venue. Biking is always encouraged, and there are plenty of bike racks nearby.
