I recently planned a business event at Historic Oakland. This was not a meeting but a fun night to thanks our customers. We had different food tables and activities (photo booth, caricaturists, henna tattoos, etc) in all the rooms, both upstairs and downstairs. Everyone had a wonderful time. The staff was very accommodating. I used the sound system and hooked up my phone for music. I also used the microphone to announce door prizes. I have done three events like this and this was the best location. The only one issue would be the stairs because some of the older guests had problems with them.

I loved everything about my wedding at Historic Oakland. It was a great choice!! I married outside in the garden and held my reception inside. It's a great deal bc you pay for one venue to accommodate two services and it's absolutely beautiful and elegant. My guests were blown away!

Ours wasn't a wedding situation so I'm not sure our review will help. Though, with the carpets gone, maybe the prohibition on red wines could be lifted, too?

Historic Oakland responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your feedback. There is no longer a red wine policy. That has been changed. What was your event date? It is most likely that you signed your contract prior to the policy change which took place mid-year of 2015. I am sorry this wasn't communicated to you.

We had looked at other mansion type locations in order to keep our wedding intimate. Oakland was the perfect place for it. The Bishop's Garden next to the house was the perfect location for a ceremony. Even though it seats about 80, our 160 guests surrounded it and were able to capture the wedding from different angles. The bathrooms are clean, well-lit and inviting. The staff courteous and professional. Nadia was amazing to work with and the price was affordable. The tent in the backyard was the perfect spot to hold our reception dinner and dancing while the inside of the house was used for our photo booth and cocktail hour. Our guests felt at home. If you are looking for a place that feels inviting, relaxed and a bit like home, I highly reccommend Historic Oakland. If we ever renew our vows- this place would be it!

When selecting a wedding venue, make certain the venue representative truly understands the importance of creating a beautiful memory for the bride, groom and guests that will last forever. Nadia of Historic Oakland is that person. Oakland Manor is the perfect setting for your wedding day. The caterer, Rouge, delivers great food, drink and professional attention to every guest. Michael, the DJ with Entertainment With Class DJ's, had the dance floor packed all night. We will never forget how Historic Oakland made my daughter's wedding more than an event: it will be a day that will live in our heart's forever.
