Living Uptown Oakland

Oakland is a city rooted in its unique culture and creative expression. And, the Uptown neighborhood is one of the hottest places in Oakland.

From The Moran, you're new apartment is walking distance to a barista who knows your name and your order, dozens of local independent beers on tap or the perfectly mixed cocktail. Art and creative expression is everywhere from live performances at The Fox and Paramount theaters, street art and inspiring galleries or culinary artists pushing boundaries in artisanal food and beverages. At The Moran, we stand by - and for - our edgy, artsy, neighborhood!

Eclectic Finds

Everything you need is right here in Uptown. Sample some of the local beers on tap at the Lost and Found Beer Garden, meet up at Luka’s Taproom happy hour for 1/2 price burgers or sit outside in the sun at Drake's Dealership, before heading over to Fox Theater to catch your favorite band or Jazz Tuesdays at Starline Social Club.

Don’t forget your pup, our neighborhood is super dog-friendly with places to roll on the grass, sit in the sun or get some cardio in with a good walk.
