Bad news you People Party-ers and other fans of the Oasis club on 12th Street. The city is looking to yank the cabaret permit of the eclectic club with the fantastic patio. You can read the rest of the story here before the City Council hears the operators’ appeal May 5. The story is a little complicated but boils down to two things. One, the club caught the attention of Oakland’s party police in 2008 because the club’s owner hadn’t paid the annual cabaret permit fee, which the city acknowledged was the result of a bureaucratic oversight: the owners never got billed for the annual fee. So they were told to stop the partying, aka “cabaret activity.” The new cabaret permit application was denied because the place didn’t pass inspections. In the meantime, the owner/manager kept on with the DJs and dancing and drinking and other activity reported by an undercover OPD.  It’s all in the report
