(Recently closed) Downtown Oakland’s tropical getaway is not so much Tiki as at is tan and green island elegance. Set to an exotica soundtrack with a thatched hut in the corner, Longitude pulls more from Africa and Polynesia in the 1930s with mounted wall masks and artwork collected by owner Suzanne Long.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: The bar offers whiskeys, rums and rhum agricole rarities, alongside cocktails like the dramatic house Daiquiri featuring Appleton Estate V/X rum and served in an ice shell.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Regulars know to sneak up the giraffe-print-carpeted stairs to the upstairs mezzanine for a quieter getaway.
