Luka's Taproom & Lounge had delicious food, strong drinks and a wide variety of cold beer in a fun atmosphere. What more could you ask for?
Luka's was open from 2004 until 2022, when a dispute with landlord led to them closing. The bar was often credited with helping revitalize the uptown area. 1
In May 2022, Urbana Oakland applied to open a cannabis dispensary and consumption lounge at the location. 2
Before Luka's, the building was The Cigar Box (which also had a soda fountain) sometime after 1932, then was the Hofbrau restaurant from the early 1950s to 2003. Luka's opened in 2004.
