April 2018 The Octopus celebrated it's 3rd Birthday.

In 2017 we were named BEST CAFE by The East Bay Express!
We were also selected as The Best Place for Literary Events.

We have hosted hundreds of amazing events.

Our humble stage has hosted so many of our heroes: Chuck Prophet, The Posies, Tommy Stinson (The Replacements), Tav Falco (Panther Burns), Steve Kilbey (The Church), Amanda Kramer (Psychedelic Furs), Mark Growden, Gun Outfit...

Before our current location we did some amazing pop-ups in local living rooms and at The Chabot Space & Science Center. Check out some of our ancient history below:
