.The East Bay’s Hottest Neighborhood for Singles? West Oakland

Stand aside, Uptown!

While Uptown may get all the awards and beer gardens, when it comes to dates, it might be time for East Bay singles to look West. According to a new study (term used liberally) and infographic put together by dating site Zoosk and Yelp, the East Bay neighborhood with the hottest singles is West Oakland.

[jump] Zoosk analyzed data in major metropolitan areas such as LA, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and the Bay Area, pooling from its 146,000 dating profiles to determine that West Oakland is home to the most desired singles under 35, and the Marina/Cow Hollow in San Francisco is where you’ll find the hottest singles over 35. West Oak in the hizzy!

The folks at Yelp then figured out where you should take these hot singles on a date in said ‘hoods: For West Oak, it’s The Beer Shed at the Dock (Check out Luke Tsai’s review of the restaurant). For those venturing to the Marina, you should head to Causwells.

For other West Oak date options, we’d also suggest heading to FuseBOX (amazing kimchi and Korean Fried Chicken), 10th and Wood (for when your date goes REALLY WELL and you need breakfast the next day), and the newish coffee shop Kilovolt (for a more laid back, punk-ish vibe).
