Sláinte (slahn-cha) is an authentic Irish pub offering a menu of traditional Irish cooking and classic cocktails in the heart of Jack London Square.
The menu features Irish cuisine from Irish-born Executive Chef, Jackie Gallanagh, with dishes that include both imported & local ingredients. Owner and Beverage Director, Jenny Schwarz, of Oakland’s popular restaurant, Hopscotch, offers a bar menu with classic cocktails, a well-stocked selection of whisky, premium spirits, and local & imported beers.
We hope you will know Sláinte as a place to call home, pull up a stool, sip on a pint, tell a long story, throw some darts, relax by the fire, and enjoy a home-cooked traditional Irish meal.

“Oakland is about to receive an Irish pub in the form of Sláinte (pronounced slahn-cha, Gaelic for “good health, or cheers.”). It will join the Jack London Square drinking contingent at 131 Broadway, bringing traditional pub fare and drinks to the people.”

“My first bite of crackling cod in Sláinte’s homey plate of fish and chips sold me completely, especially when paired with a perfect draught of Guinness.”
SF WEEKLY / may 2017
“That Irish Breakfast, tho: it’s got two fried eggs, a bowl of beans, a roasted half tomato, black and white pudding, bacon and Irish sausage, house-made Irish soda bread buttered with Kerrygold, and a potato pancake known as boxty. It’s $16 worth of coronary thrombosis on a plate, and it’s terrific.”
Cheers to Oakland’s New Authentic Irish Pub – Slainte
Walnut Creek magazine / may 2017
“That authenticity brings tears to the eyes of the Irish expats who enter – especially moving seems to be the display of Taytos crisps that hang by the bar. Gallanagh imports the ‘only-in-Ireland’ product and underestimated their emotional impact. Equally affecting are the Irish-born Gallanagh’s house made traditional Irish dishes.”

“Ignore the tourist lines at the Buena Vista; Oakland now has the Bay’s best Irish Coffee at its recently opened Irish pub, Sláinte. Enjoy a perfect combination of fresh whipped cream, Powers Irish whiskey and Oakland’s own Bicycle Coffee for an ideal sipper to defeat the Bayfront chill in Jack London Square.”
"Try chips in curry sauce, the all-day Irish breakfast platter, with Irish pork sausages, rashers, black and white pudding (shipped straight from Ireland) and house-made soda bread, or Gallanagh’s family recipe for shepherd’s pie. Save room for that dense, delicious Guinness ginger cake."
