Downtown Berkeley’s Oldest Dive Bar


Spats is more than a bar; it’s a community. Spats boasts a full bar, authentic Texas-style BBQ from SMOKE BERKELEY and events ranging from live music, DJs and dance parties to football game days, charity fundraisers and political debate gatherings; whatever you’re looking for you’ll find it here. This summer we feature live music every Second Saturday each month. Large groups encouraged. Open til 2 AM everyday.

Reopened in October 2015, Spats features cold beer, tasty cocktails, and delicious food. With 7 beers on tap and over 100 liquors you can be sure to find something you’ll love. We have Happy Hour until 6 PM everyday with specials on draft beers and cocktails. Our kitchen, featuring our partner SMOKE Berkeley, serves up the finest Texas BBQ this side of the bay.

With 9 TV's there's always a screen available to watch your game. Stop in for Tuesday Comedy Night or check out our Flashback Friday DJ sets. Thursday nights you can catch our almost famous Happy Hour All Night. We have plenty of space so large groups are encouraged. We have a private event space for up to 200 people so you can easily host your next celebration at Spats. Open until 2 AM everyday.

There's always a good time at Spats.
