Unique and atmosphere, great service, and amazing deals! – I arrived at Uptown Sports Bar and was immediately impressed by the atmosphere. Uptown has a unique and diverse clientele from businessmen dressed in suits to women in pretty dresses. It's a place where you can go for a quick lunch, to hang out with friends, a first date, or even to relax alone with a nice cold beer. I sat at the bar and was quickly approached by a smiling bartender, who excitedly helped me to select a specialty house drink called the Laguna Beach (I believe it was called). It was tasty! I then devoured beef sliders which were absolutely amazing! The bartender also told me about their happy hour specials, which I think are only on the weekdays, but they have some really great deals on food. After my Laguna Beach, I tried a variety of beers, which were only $2.50 (I think that is a Tuesday special). The bartender and I talked some more and then it was time for me to leave to meet up with a friend. I really had a great time at Uptown Sports Bar and will definetely be going back soon! I would recommend it to anyone!
A Family of Friends – Uptown is an outstanding environment to be around. The servers are extremely nice with everybody. When you are at Uptown you are not a guest but family. I understand that the servers get busy, since Uptown has all the sporting events, they have a good crowd almost every night. I go frequently becuase i like to go into a bar and feel at home. I get there and everybody knows my name, what I like to drink and how I like to drink it. This is a great place to come and relax during the week and a great place to party at on the weekends.
Shocking experience – I recently had stopped in here with my girfriend for a quick drink and some appetizers. The food was oustanding and the time was great. The problem came after we paid our check. The total was 24.80. I gave the waitress a 20 dollar bill and a 5 dollar bill. I meant to give her a 20 and a 10. I told her to keep the change. When we went to leave the waitress approached us in front of everyone and asked us if the service "sucked". my girlfirend and I looked stunned. I asked the waitress what she was talking about. She replied I wanted to know if it sucked because you had left a 20 cent tip. it was a honest mistake but the Wait staff should not be asking for tips. I told her we would not eat here again because she embarrased us in front of the other customers. Beware of this place..unless you want your date to be embarrased in front of other people.
From Uptown to Strip Club – I used to come here years ago when it first transformed into a sports bar. I just went back to join some friends for a drink and was totally shocked at the type of workers that are there. Management doesn't obviously understand the concept of professionalism. The waitress are all dressed like they should be at the strip club down the way and the management is oblivious to the amount of socializing the waitstaff does. It probably is a great place for guys, however if it keeps this up, the tables should be replaced with poles and cover charge should go to headliners. Not the kind of bar I would ever spend my money in again. I was looking for a more mature group of clientele and instead I was shocked at the service. Took forever to get a drink. If you are going, bring lots of Single Dollar Bills. I might have gotten better service that way.
Great food, Awesome drinks. Unbelivable service – I love this place! The food is excellent and perfect for bussiness meetings. They have TV's that can be programmed to whichever sport you want. I also like the crown that comes in. Everybody is friendly and its a place I can go with family to have lunch and party at night. Awesome drink specials.
best sports bar lay out in Albuquerque – Finally a sports bar in Albuquerque that has woman customers and clean bathrooms. A new menu features a accomplished set of chefs can you believe it at a sports bar finally Albuquerque is getting a big city attitude. Try the peri peri sauce or the habenero garlic if you can handle the spice. The audio video is the best in town with hugh movie screen projectors and great food. Our friends always go for happy hours and to check out the scene.
