Oakland Gay Bars, Clubs and Hotels

Oakland is a city in California with a small gay scene. It's distinguished by its proximity to San Francisco and no doubt overshadowed by it

That being said, Oakland has its charms. It's a fairly big city and there's plenty to see. You can even come on a day trip from San Francisco. Oakland is greener and sunnier than San Francisco.

Oakland Hotels

The tech boom of Silicon Valley has spilled over into Oakland. The city is somewhat divided between the elites of the tech world and a poorer, grittier side - as many American cities do.
