Teppers Hotel and Beer Garden was located in Dimond district. Charlie Tepper came to Oakland from Germany in 1895. {{{Confirm}}}  He bought land in the Dimond district and built a two-story home which later became his hotel. Behind the house was a building that he converted in a dance hall. Around he planted trees and created a place where patrons could sit and drink beers from local breweries.

Teppers remained a popular until prohibition forced the gardens and then the hotel out of business. The hotel still stands today is behind 2030 MacArthur Blvd close to Dimond Ave.
