The Overlook - An Oakland Event Space

The Overlook at Port Workspaces

The overlook is a unique Oakland event space located above Lake Merritt in the heart of Downtown Oakland’s thriving business district. Our venue has both interior and exterior spaces featuring a mixture of vintage and modern decor which make it an attractive, multi-purpose space. The Garden Room, the venue’s premier indoor space, has expansive floor to ceiling windows looking onto the historic Kaiser Center Rooftop Garden. The terrace is an urban oasis nestled in the Skyline of Downtown Oakland and provides sweeping views of Lake Merritt from our Tiki Bar Lounge Area.
