Much like you right after leaving a liquor store, Juhu Beach Club is no longer located in a liquor store (!), having ditched their former SoMa pop-up in favor of a permanent home in the Temescal, complete with a six-seat bar, tables they sanded and treated themselves, and chairs from a bunch of places (incl. two actually from the owner's house).
Lined with frilly pink wallpaper and framed Bollywood posters, this north Oakland restaurant juxtaposes a dolled-up atmosphere for its grungy menu of Indian street food-inspired food. Spiced up dishes like guju chili and manchurian cauliflower harken to authentic, lesser-known flavors native to India, while other items like Pav compare to familiar American sliders. Wine is on tap, but diners are encouraged to pair their savory meals with a glass of refreshing local beer.
