Regretfully at this time we are not fully ADA compliant, it is something we have been and will continue to pursue. The Starline is housed in a very historic ballroom that in itself has a strong history of activism dating from when it was built in 1893.  Ironically, that historic rating creates some very large obstacles in becoming fully compliant. We are actively working with the City of Oakland Historic Preservation Department to find a solution. Accessibility and safety for ALL people are a core value for us at the Starline and something we will always strive to create and uphold.
