SF Weekly's Description

Located across from the newly renovated Fox Theater and down the street from Cafe Van Kleef, the Uptown is a cornerstone venue in the resurgent downtown Oakland music scene. The interior is split into two rooms: the main cocktail area - with high ceilings, a towering and ornate antique back bar, and rotating art displays - and the less-fancy performance area with a basic stage at the far end. A sizable patio, tucked into the concrete-and-brick urban gulch out back, gives smokers and non-smokers alike an outdoor escape from the noise within. Indie pop, punk, rockabilly, hip-hop, burlesque events, DJ nights, and other hipster-bait bookings fill the calendar most nights of the week.

    Tiny club but that just makes everyone close to the stage. Saw the English Beat last night. So much fun! Danced my ass off.
