Best late bar in the neighborhood. They also sell beers to go which is nice when you don’t feel like walking a ways to get late night beer for the house.

Fun time singing and be silly and I loved that I could order food to be delivered right to my table in a timely manner from a third party. Such a smart idea. Save money on staff, kitchen appliances wear and tear, labor... Just hire a third party to deliver good bar food in a timely and technologically professional manner.The venue was clean, the staff was very nice, and the karaoke guy was super nice and fun too. I don't normally like karaoke but this place was great and I'd do it again!

Sells six packs of domestics until closing. Perfect for industry people like me that don't get off until after liquor stores have closed. Is pretty popular for bar patrons so there's almost always a crowd. Staff is bucking but always friendly! Great karaoke!

Nice place. Very clean bathrooms. Good beer selection. Seems like a really good place to get warmed up before you head to the Aragon Ballroom for a show.

Ahhhhh! Karaoke hunty! This my go to spot. Dj is fkn awesome and has some great skills on te mic too. He will find a song even if it's not in the book , if he can't he may reccomend something else by same artist. Cozy, dimly lit ( for the shy folks) but it really gets cracking after midnight on the weekends. Very supportive crowd. Cheap drinks, def my fav.

Perfect meet up spot before or after shows at Aragon & Riviera. One of the best jukeboxes in the city. Solid beer selection.

Funky little neighborhood place worthy of a stop after any show at the Aragon or Riviera. We ended up doing shots with one of the bands.

This amazing lounge has the BEST karaoke in CHITOWN, hands down !! They have ALL the songs ~ new & old !! The atmosphere, the staff, and the vibes are pitch perfect for a night out with your girls, after a corporate softball game, to unwind and have an epic night. ❤?????????

Amazing STAPLE of the neighborhood. If you go to a show at any of the three theaters, I imagine you will visit here. Karoke, modern drink selection. A good time.

Love this place! Has a local neighborhood feel. You'll see the same friends and new faces week after week. With karaoke, live bands, and other exciting events there's always something going on at Uptown Lounge! Come alone or bring your party. You'll have fun either way!

A good place to relax and have a drink or two. They have great specials throughout the week along with karaoke nights. And you don't want to miss the burlesque show when it comes through!

Decent place to hangout with friends for drinks. Karaoke was enjoyable and fun. Drinks are reasonable. The only con for me is no food. Could be a great after work hangout if they had at least some small bites/plate options. However, I do think they allow you to order/bring food.
