Gene's Place is an awesome little hole in the wall bar that nearly always offers a relaxed and fun time. Away from the main drag of Forbes, Gene's is located in central Oakland right off of Atwood in a convenient spot for students living in the area! This is a great spot to catch the game and grab a pitcher with friends on any day of the week. Although it is a small interior space it feels cozy and not uncomfortable.
I would absolutely recommend Gene's to others. The service is always good and so are the prices. There's a jukebox as well as darts so even if you're not into the sports game there's something to entertain oneself. Gene's Place is a nice little spot in the middle of a college neighborhood that draws in a crowd of all ages and has a lot to offer!
