UPDATE: Oakland Alley Cat Bar And Restaurant On Grand To Reopen April 22nd.

The Alley Bar is back! After a year-long spell that saw the Alley Cat Bar And Restaurant, the piano bar that’s lasted and thrived as 3325 Grand Avenue since 1931, the place that the late Rod Dibble tickled the ivories at is set to re-open on April 16th, 2021.

The establishment will only be able to accept 50 percent of its total capacity, or about 45 people at a time, but that this is happening is music to the ears of all of the people who make up The Alley’s family of fans, patrons, and regulars.

The re-opening of The Alley happened after a fund-raiser netted over $75,000 in just its first week of operation. A subsequent virtual auction brought in an additional $13,000.

And Jackie Simpkins, The Alley Cat Bar Owner and my long-time friend, has worked tirelessly to get plans approved. And after a lot of trying and a lot of help, punctuated by the assistance of the City of Oakland, and the Office of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, the announcement that the great place I love so much was re-opening was delivered to me, today.

Stay tuned.


Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
