About the Venue

About the Venue

Crybaby is a music venue set in Uptown, one of the busiest and most popular areas of Oakland.  Previously known as the Uptown Nightclub, Crybaby will encompass the same underground roots, but create a more open free format and curation. Alongside a carefully crafted design, Crybaby will also be equipped with a brand new state of the art D&B Audiotechnik sound system that will blow away our audience on the dance floor and effectively handle both live bands and electronic/dj acts alike, as well as a cozy mezzanine and patio spaces (allowing for smoking). 

Located on Telegraph Avenue, across the street from the historic Fox Theater, Crybaby is easily accessible to the busiest area for nightlife and entertainment in Oakland. Booking genres across the board as well as opening the venue to local booking powerhouses, international brands and full service event planners, Crybaby alongside its sister venue Ceremony, will be coming with a unique aesthetic and brand, rare to the city and music industry.

Crybaby will be creating an all-inclusive, elevated space, full of diversity in both talent and patrons, with no frills and world class sound by a team well known and documented for it.
