The Port - 101 Broadway
101 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94607, United States
This three-story Oakland landmark at the entrance to Jack London Square was built in 1909 astride the terminus of the first Transcontinental railroad. It was once known as the Overland House — the place for travelers to complete their “overland” journey before setting sail on the Pacific. This former pub and “bawdy house” was a favorite haunt of Mr. Jack London himself, named in his John Barleycorn as a preferred spot to score free drinks. True to its roots, the our 101 Broadway location sits above a restored, ground floor restaurant and bar, the closest of many watering holes and great dining options in Jack London Square. A painstaking 2013 restoration revealed original 7-brick-thick walls and sweeping 60-foot wooden beams — the textures of Oakland’s historic Produce Market — and added brilliant skylights, eco-friendly building systems, gigabit Internet, high-tech conference space, phone rooms and a wide variety of seating and meeting options. Other favorite features include a sunlit workbar, community kitchen and our famous 30-foot tube slide – AKA the “Gravity-Powered Productivity Booster”. Ping-pong, pool table, bike parking and showers as well as ample supplies of craft beer and coffee keep Port Workspace members, fit and fueled for any business challenge.
