Paragon is a chic lounge that caters to the sophisticated set of Berkeley locals and out-of-towners, offering up soulful jazz acts four nights a week. You can sink yourself into one of many sumptuous leather couches or kick your swanky self back on the patio with its commanding view of the Bay. The libation selection is extensive and Paragon compliments its traditional cocktails with some choice house selections. Also, appetizers and dinner are offered, which are nothing short of delicious. Paragon does get crowded, but it's not your run of the mill bar throng; it's beautiful people.
