Jupiter is the East Bay's most popular beerhouse, locally owned & operated, serving its own handcrafted beers & ales along with ''award-winning'' wood-fired pizzas. Housed in an old livery stable from the 1890's, Jupiter exudes a European atmosphere found in the heart of Berkeley, California. (The design was inspired by the oldest bar in Berlin.)
When sunlit, the lower patio seating is packed with lunch patrons enjoying the outdoor seating. After dusk, heat lamps keep the patio full, as the scene converts to an eclectic nightlife, where hours are spent listening to great jazz. Jupiter is well known as a premiere alternative jazz venue, and features a summertime music schedule which runs Tuesday ? Saturday. Check out the events page for more information about the year-round live jazz programming, and the critically-acclaimed ''Americana Unplugged'' Summer Bluegrass series which runs every Sunday afternoon, April through October.
Jupiter Main HallThe food at Jupiter is truly unique, prepared before your eyes at the end of the downstairs bar. Wood-fired pizzas and baked foccacia sandwiches are a perfect compliment to the fresh microbrews, lunch favorites include the open-faced Neptuna Melt sandwich, and the Zeus, Odysseus, and Andromeda pizzas are joined by new (seasonal) pizza recipes year round. The dinner menu expands after five o'clock, with seasonal plates for patrons to share. Everything on the menu is created with Jupiter customers in mind, and each item can be complimented by a Jupiter House Brew. Jupiter is the creation of John Martin.
