New Venue in Oakland’s Laurel District

Former Oakland lesbian bar Velvet has been transformed into a new venue called Lounge 3411. The new business — located at 3411 MacArthur Blvd. (near the Taco Bell at 35th Ave.) — focuses on roots reggae, comedy, and local bands; features a full-service bar, dance floor, stage, and DJ booth; and will be open Thursday through Saturday from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Here’s the schedule so far: Roots Shack Thursdays (started last night, continues every Thursday) hosted by DJ Selecta Kurious, The Get Down Stand Up Comedy Night (this Saturday and every fourth Saturday), and Bands of the Bay hosted by Dan Eagan (every third Saturday of the month).
