2009_06_fox.jpgNot only is Oakland rife with new restaurants, but the bar scene is exploding too, according to the BizTimes. Just in the Uptown district alone, Somar, Den at the Fox Theater, and 2022 have all opened in recent months, while still more are on the way for the nabe: Era (4,500-square-foot "art bar and lounge" from guys behind B Restaurant and Tamarindo), Mimosa (2,200-square-foot champagne, raw and dessert bar), and from the owner of SF's The Independent, another live music venue called the Town Hall of Oakland.
