Flora is an art deco restaurant and bar in downtown Oakland, California. Owners Dona Savitsky and Thomas Schnetz evoke the opulence of a bygone era with carefully crafted cocktails and a menu of reinvented American classics. Flora is housed in the beautifully ornate Oakland Floral Depot building, built in 1931 by architect Albert Evers. Composed of silver and cobalt glazed terra cotta, it is an East Bay landmark of art deco architecture. Flora is located across the street from the Fox Theater, and one block from the Paramount Theater, another classic example of art deco design.
