The Dive Bar Egbert Souse on Piedmont Avenue needs to be closed! Saying the place is a "Dive Bar" is too nice. Egbert Souse's is a nuisance at all times of the day and night. Egbert Souse has a negative impact on Piedmont Avenue residents, visitors and businesses. Egbert Souse's customers are always blocking the sidewalk in front and around the bar. Fights break out at least twice a week (including with weapons). Customers sit in their cars playing loud music while drinking and using drugs. The City of Oakland has even filed lawsuits against Egbert Souse's. How many people have to be shot and killed at Egbert Souse's to get it shutdown?

This little bar is dedicated to vintage comedian W.C. Fields and remains behind the times--prices included. – The Scene
Named after Field's character in the 1940 film "The Bank Dick," Egbert Souse (pronounced sue-say) is brimming with beat-up character. The sticky tables, dusty vents and yellowed cigarette vending machine ($5 cigarettes) exhibit signs of abandonment. The jukebox hasn't received many updates in years either. Neon beer signs and photos of Fields clutter the walls, and a painted mural of scenes from his movies backs the bar.

The Draw
A diverse crowd, many slurping after-work drinks, comes here for heavily poured, healthy-sized mixed drinks (only $3) and domestic beers on tap ($2.75). The greasy bar food from Chan's, the kitchen right inside the bar, is cheap, too--more so in quality than price.
