LOOT is a small shop filled with an eclectic mix of antiques, home furnishings and one of a kind treasures located in the heart of Rockridge in Oakland. Ron Morgan offers floral arranging classes on select Mondays.
Rhonda C. says on Yelp: "I had walked by this shop several times, but this particular day Kingsley (the owner) was outside tending to a newly acquired piece of furniture in need of a little TLC. His gentle demeanor and genuine love for fine craftmanship reeled me in. I couldn't resist buying a few of the pieces, because I had never seen anything like them and I was worried that I might not again. A Rockridge gem!"

A Historic Location Focused on Classic-Inspired Cocktails and Beer.
The College Avenue location is in the heart of one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the East Bay, where oddly enough, there aren’t any other non-restaurant bars focusing on higher-end cocktails. The space itself is also unique. Featuring a huge brick fireplace (which will be fired up in the winter), the 1912-era building is one of the oldest in the area. And the kicker, according to Jeff Saltzman (co-owner), is that its original purpose was to house a pro-Prohibition group called, yes, the Rockridge Improvement Club.
You may feel like you're dropped into a ski lodge, with a roaring fire, a pool table, and ping pong tables--is a great place: friendly but not decorous; well-loved; lively but not claustrophobic, and, mercifully, quiet enough to have a conversation.
This bar draws a lively and standing-room-only crowd of grad students, hipsters, and blue-collar locals with its cheap drinks, jukebox, Sriracha-spiked free popcorn, student discounts, no-frills vibe, unusually friendly bartenders, and unpretentious attitude. On the weekends, it can be especially crowded. This cash-only dive bar also has a little-known lower level that’s affectionately called “the undergraduate.”
Bryan P. on Yelp says: "Before Bing, I didn't understand the difference a good haircut can make. Before special occasions, everyone would go for a haircut except for me. I always thought I looked worse after a haircut. And I was sort of right. I did look worse after getting my hair cut. Because I was getting the wrong cut.
You know that George Zimmer commercial for Men's Warehouse? When Bing cut my hair, I liked the way I looked. I couldn't believe how much better I looked. And apparently, neither could my friends, family, and co-workers. I've never gotten compliments on my hair before but after Bing cut it, I was getting 2-3 a day for a week.
The only bad thing is that haircuts are like that new car smell. They don't last. But now I know just where to go to get my hair looking its absolute best. Wish I could say the same about my car :/"
