The Gleaner: Nightclub Brings the Caribbean to California

From The Gleaner:

As a little piece of the Caribbean in Northern California, the New Karibbean City club is trying to expose local music to the California area.

Located in Oakland California, the club/restaurant is moving full speed ahead in its bid to become a known reggae/dancehall venue.

The club has been open for a number of years as the Karibbean City Club, but changed ownership three years ago. With the change in ownership came a change in name to the "New Karibbean City."

Richard ENC, who is of Trinidadian and Jamaican heritage, is actively pushing Caribbean music to a new audience.

Open from Wednesday to Sunday, the club acts as a restaurant in the day serving Jamaican food, and opens as a club in the night.

Speaking with The Gleaner recently, booking manager for New Karibbean City Club, Alicia Stewart, said the club was the only after hours club in the Oakland area. According to Stewart, the club plays dancehall, hip hop, R&B and a lot of dancehall, reggae and soca.
