Oasis Tasting Room & Kitchen

415A River Street

Santa Cruz

Oasis Tasting Room & Kitchen is a collaboration between two pillars of the local food and beverage scene, Santa Cruz’s own El Salchichero and Uncommon Brewers. Located on River St. in the Farmers Exchange building, Oasis is a place to relax and connect. This communal hotspot with top-notch eats and an expansive, comfortable, and lively atmosphere boasts a rustic modern interior with plush leather couches, live edge redwood slab tables, palm trees, and roll up wall windows to bring the outdoors in.

Watch the kitchen prepare offerings from the main bar lining the open kitchen, or tune in to watch your favorite sports games on screen. The menu features a range of sharable small plates like pastrami poutine, spring pea toast, or salmon rillette. Larger fare include the Matambre Burger, vegetarian black bean burger, or a whole Poussin can be the main course for a family dinner. With vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options in addition to our meatier fare, Oasis has something for everyone.

Oasis features nine Uncommon Brewers beers on draft, rare limited release cans, and sells 4-packs to take home. Uncommon focuses on European styles and uses spice additions in the brewing process like lavender tea for the Steamers Lane Lager, toasted poppy seeds for the Golden State Ale, and an entire bacon-cured pork leg for the Bacon Brown Ale to create a full bodied, rich and smokey brew. The balance of malt, hop, acidity, and subtly unique flavor profiles make this beer an excellent companion of food.  Oasis Tasting Room & Kitchen is a no tipping establishment. We promote progressive service industry practices by incorporating an 18% service charge into the price of each menu item; so patrons don’t have to tip, and both the front and back of house earn equitable, living wages.
