Uptown Bar's relocation dead in the water

Uptown Bar's relocation dead in the water

From local business paper Finance & Commerce comes some sad, if not entirely surprising, news about the Uptown Bar's planned relocation.

"The investment group that was working with Uptown Bar was not able to come to terms with the Lyndale Theater."

The Uptown Bar crew was rumored to have been planning a three-level grand redesign, featuring a rooftop patio, of the old Theatre Antiques space. According to F&C's report (and anyone with eyes), the Lyn-Lake area has been thriving in recent years, making the lack of comity between Lyndale Theater building owners and Uptown Bar management at least a little confusing.

One of the more surprising things to come out of F&C's coverage is that Lyn-Lake isn't considered Uptown, which I'm happy about as I don't have to describe where I live as Uptown anymore. "Nah dude, Lyn-Lake." But where to go to drink? Home. Still.
