Before its transformation into Oakland’s first coffee lab & tasting room, our historic building started life in the 1920’s as a car showroom. We carefully renovated the space to both preserve what we loved about the building and reflect our open-source and experimental ethos.

We provide end-to-end turn-key services including: beverage, food, hospitality & world-class coffee service. The Crown offers:

  • State of the Art A/V with wireless mic, both a 133” projector, a 92” projector and surround sound throughout the entire building
  • Our network of world-class caterers, ranging from Afro-Brazilian cuisine to Japanese specialties. Whatever culinary experience you’re looking for, we have a wide network ready to help
  • 65 chairs
  • 6 elegant, movable carts
  • A one-of-a-kind experience your guests will remember

Whether you simply need a beautiful space, a private training with our esteemed coffee professionals, or the ideal space to host 150 or your closest friends, complete with food and drink, this is the venue for you. Located in the heart of Oakland, your guests can easily visit The Crown via BART, bike or bus.
