The Oakland Indie Awards were a smashing success!


Kaiser building roof top garden view

A roof top garden, a DJ spinning danceable music all night, and $10 to get and eat all the food you want from a host of 25 vendors…what’s not to like!


The Indie Awards are in support of local independent businesses who have stood out of the crowd and been noticed. It was a great night held by all and the views were absolutely amazing!




View of Lake Merritt from the top of the Kaiser Building, Oakland CA

Many people are not aware of the Kaiser Building in Oakland CA which has a roof top garden with mature trees, water landscapes, a restaurant, and stunning views of Lake Merritt. In the summer, they even offer free concerts in the afternoon.

While we were there I was told the roof top garden has been around for 50 years and it was built in the days of Henry J. Kaiser. It’s said to be the first rooftop garden built in America post-World War II. Wow!

The East Bay Express was the organization who put the event together and they added a wine/beer bar with drink ($4 drink tickets). There were local vendors selling their wares, and a free photo booth for you to take home a picture of you and your friends.

Gotta love Oakland!
