The Uptown Bar closed a couple of days ago. The Current took the time to put together a short documentary of people talking about their memories of the bar.
I have dozens of pint glasses from the place, and accidentally innumerable free glasses behind.
I lived at 33rd and Fremont – just a few blocks away – for five years, and I hit the Uptown often. Back in the smoking era, the place reeked. The food was uniform and uniformly bad. The bloody marys, however, were excellent. It makes me feel old to see the place go.
