Heinold's First and Last Chance is a waterfront saloon opened by John (Johnny) M. Heinold in 1883 on Jack London Square in Oakland, California, United States. The name "First and Last Chance" refers to the time in which for many sailors, the pub was the first and last chance to drink alcohol heavily before or after a long voyage.

Heinold's First and Last Chance is also known as "Jack London's Rendezvous", as it was the inspiration for scenes from the Oakland writer's novels Call of the Wild and The Sea Wolf.

  • The bar looks really cool, authentic and the crooked bar is funny, that's why I gave 3 Stars. But ... it is terrible smelly in there, thanks god the weather was nice so I was sitting outside (on a cold metall chair), and I ordered a Chanty (Radler) and it tastet like dishwater. Horrible!
  • To sip a whiskey with a beer, to think of sailors going out to sea or the feel of the gold fever planning to strike it rich.... Authentic, couldn't be more.
