The Milk Bar is in East Oakland, and here are the directions to it: read carefully (really). we're easy to get to and tough to find but well worth it.
Where: The Milk Bar is located in East Oakland in the Sunshine Biscuit Factory Complex. We are approx 1 mile from the Oakland Coliseum on 81st Ave, 1/2 block east of San Leandro Ave. The address is 851 81st Ave. However, knowing this number is not sufficient to find the right entrance. Please read the detailed directions below.
Map quest / google maps can sometimes be deceptive in this area. This map is ok.
Take 880 south through Oakland. Exit at 66th Ave.
At the end of the exit ramp turn left at the light onto 66th. Follow 66th Ave. past the Coliseum and turn right onto San Leandro Ave. Follow San Leandro past the Coliseum BART station until you hit 81st Ave.
Turn left onto 81st Ave., noticing the Sunshine Biscuit Factory complex on your left (that's where you're going). It has mustard trim and a large sign saying "your storage place."
Pass the first fenced driveway (for U-Haul), and turn left into the 2nd gate/driveway. Our entrance is to the right of the U-Haul Store. Don't continue on through the tunnel. You'll be met at the gate during the half hour before the show and helped to find parking.
BART / Transit Directions
We are biking/slightly long walk from BART. Take BART to the
Coliseum/Oakland Airport stop, exit onto San Leandro Ave., and proceed south approx 2 intersections to 81st Ave. We are the 2nd fenced driveway on the left, after turning left on 81st Ave. Please do not hesitate to call if you are at all confused, we are available for rides back to BART after the show.
