Oakland and beyond is beginning to discover all that Brooklyn Basin has to offer. With its amazing setting and waterfront views, Brooklyn Basin is becoming the go-to venue for all things East Bay.
A recent Oaklandside article showcased how Brooklyn Basin has become one of Oakland’s most popular outdoor concert venues. A portion of the article can be found below:
The roller skaters didn’t seem phased by the Andalusian scene manifesting on the stage by Rocky’s Market, barely pausing as they glided behind flamenco dancer Melissa Cruz while she executed a series of percussive, clave-inflected foot maneuvers. The sold-out audience, however, was rapt despite the sailboats traversing the estuary in the background and the glorious view of San Francisco behind the Alameda skyline.
Even without artists pouring out their souls, Brooklyn Basin makes a hell of a first impression. While construction continues on the massive housing development along Oakland’s waterfront, located next to the Jack London District, the park and adjacent open space surrounding the historic docks has emerged this summer as the East Bay’s most inviting outdoor venue. Still something of an Oakland secret, the concerts have been making the most of the balmy weather and spectacular setting. Brooklyn Basin proves the saying: if you build it, they will come—artists, dancers, comedians, salseros and soneros, soul belters and Afrobeatizans, aspiring jazz cats, and symphonic string players.
We agree. Brooklyn Basin is a wonderful addition to life along the Oakland Waterfront. With retail ventures as well as an Township Commons Park, it’s a wonderful place to play and a better place to call home.
