Small Wonder

Stephen Texeira

Step inside Oakland's Small Wonder to find a magical bar with big sparkly ornaments hanging above cozy nooks and eclectic seating. On a recent Thursday, there was lively jazz, no cover. You need not have imbibed F173one of the strong Sazeracs or the 510-420 (cannabis-suffused vodka) to appreciate the grotto-like lavatories in the back among Suessical curving walls. The communal cauldronlike washbasin is huge, decorated with fanciful brickwork and whimsical pull chains. You will return to your spot at the bar to tell everyone to go wash his or her hands just for the fun of it.
