Type: Bar, Live Music
Housed in what was once a stable, Jupiter has taken full advantage of its unusual location by creating a unique modern day Gothic ambience. Pews and Gothic-style chandeliers were scavenged from an old church, bronze-colored pressed tin panels some of the walls, and copper tops the bar itself, and vintage games provide some entertainment. Upstairs there are several cozy tables set up around a woodstove, and out back there's a heated patio that functions as a lively jazz venue during the summer. Jupiter brews its own beer, but offers an array of other microbrews as well, and when hunger pangs strike, you can order a stellar wood-fired oven pizza.

Berkeley's Best Dance Clubs, Berkeley's Best Bars: "Get your money's worth with a pint of Jupiter Quasar Double IPA."
Best for Berkeley's Best Dance Clubs Because: Jupiter is known for its craft beers but also offers a great selection of live music on its beautiful outdoor patio.
Best for Berkeley's Best Bars Because: With an ideal location on Shattuck just steps from the BART, you'd have to intentionally bypass Jupiter during your Berkeley pub-crawl. (Horrible mistake.)
