Handles Gastropub is located at the historic Pleasanton Hotel in beautiful Downtown Pleasanton, CA. Our restaurant is a unique variation of the traditional neighborhood pub that serves high quality, farm-fresh food. The menu is seasonal, ingredient driven American comfort food with an emphasis on all natural meats, poultry and fish in combination with fresh, local produce.  Our popular bar & lounge  features 30 craft beers and 16 local wines ON TAP. Classic cocktails and various house creations are mixed behind our full service bar.  You can also enjoy our full menu offering outside on our lovely landscaped patio, affectionately referred to as the ‘Beer Garden’ by our loyal customers.  Alongside a scenic setting, the patio has a cabana bar and comfortably seats up to 110 people in the shade provided by 100 year old trees.

There is always something ‘On Tap’ at Handles on Main! Weekends filled with live music including Jazz in the Beer Garden and Rock & Roll concerts in the bar area. Weekly Chef created food & beer pairings and wine tasting dinners.  Warriors basketball, A’s & Giants baseball, Raiders & 49ers football, among other top Bay Area and national sports on multiple screens throughout the restaurant.  Craft beer pint nights, brew fests and cigar pairing dinners. Holiday parties and a Grand Buffet on Easter Sunday and Mother’s day.  Don’t forget our weekly Sunday buffet brunch that includes bottomless mimosas and custom bloody marys!

You can also choose Handles on Main for your next private event!  We offer secluded indoor and outdoor banquet space with customizable floor plans (25 -250pp), private bars, event coordination and a celebrated in-house catering team.  Corporate meetings and dinners, weddings, reunions, fundraisers, memorials and much more are available to book at our spacious and historic location.

It is our goal to become your favorite neighborhood place! We look forward to serving you and your family soon.
