7th West is owned and operated by Oakland locals Donna Inscho Brinkman and Kevin Pelgone of Overlook Lounge, Assan Jethmal of Good Mother Gallery and Pancho Kachingwe of The Hatch. The four friends and entrepreneurs came together with a vision to create a funky, multifunctional venue in the heart of West Oakland. Our indoor/outdoor space is a mashup of an old school arcade, mixed-genre dance club, industry hangout, and live music venue. Our friendly staff and bartenders are dedicated to giving you exceptional service in a welcoming place where you can dance, connect, and socialize.

7th West is conveniently located just steps from West Oakland BART (ample street parking is readily available). Please check our website often for an updated calendar of events and contact us directly for private party inquiries. Dogs and well-behaved humans always welcome.

Come for the handcrafted cocktails and the best local beers on tap, stay for the beats and the vibe!

Dennis "Jeepney Guy" Villafranca aka Dad

Dennis Villafranca’s seven years as The Jeepney Guy — serving a straight-up menu of self-professed atypical Filipino cuisine, including his famous boneless lechon — have been dedicated to sharing an energy that harkens to traditional fiestas by presenting a casual, approachable vibe. It’s a family and community-oriented experience that, for Dennis, is critical to the identity of his project because of how The Jeepney Guy got its start.
