Much has changed since Jack London – the turn-of-the-century American author of “White Fang” and “Call of the Wild” – grew up on Oakland’s waterfront. But you can still drink whiskey grandley, sup on oysters and meander beside the docks just as they did in the 1890s in this waterfront neighborhood named after this literary star. The Jack London District has old school vibes everywhere – from the covered sidewalks and old time saloons that can be found in the historic Wholesale Produce Market to the warehouse cafes and bars that give this part of town it’s reputation as the “Beverage Belt”. That’s why this formerly gritty waterfront is perfect for anyone that is looking for a classic East Bay experience.
