Located in West Oakland’s historic lower bottoms neighborhood, the Village Bottoms Cultural District is an emerging neighborhood commercial hub. You will find the center of Bay Area African-American and African Diaspora culture and life with businesses such as Cornelia Bell Black Bottoms Gallery, the Black New World Social Aid & Pleasure Club, Nganga Diallo’s House of Common Sense Gallery and Soul Foods Co-op. Future additions will include Ghetto Flowers Boutique, Black Dot Cafe and an assortment of other mom ‘n pop businesses that uniquely reflect the culture of African-Americans in Oakland. If you visit in August, you can shop at the Village Bottoms Sunday Market, which showcases the crafts of local neighborhood artisans.
The Village Bottoms is a community-led revitalization effort to bring back the “Harlem of the West” and create a living local economy for the residents of West Oakland.
