If there’s a dive in Uptown, Uptown Bar & Grill is it. For nearly two decades, the bar has offered cheap drink specials and good burgers to the Uptown set. Neon beer lights cast a campy red hue over the thick tiled floor, on the outskirts of which sit tables where patrons order drinks and pub grub while watching karaoke, one of the bar’s biggest draws. Another big draw in the warmer months is Uptown Bar & Grill’s expansive patio, which offers a good vantage point for watching people or games, the latter of which flicker on outdoor flat-screen televisions.
