According to The Oakbook, small businesses often can’t afford the $2,200 cabaret license from the city. Under Oakland City councilwoman Nancy Nadel’s proposed plan, businesses that have an occupancy of 50 or less would be able to buy a small cabaret permit for $600. She also proposed an experiment that would allow 10 bars to apply for extended hours. They still wouldn’t be able to sell alcohol past 2 am, but at least the party could continue a few more hours.
