While Uptown Social is a vast, spacious bar with more TVs than a Best Buy, it also happens to be a decent way to while away some time, especially if you can get a spot on the rooftop deck. Uptown Social is a bar — technically, four bars — a responsibility they take seriously. Whatever your pleasure, they have some. There are adult slushies with names like High Noon grapefruit frose and Day Rager, plus signature cocktails like the Grape-full Dead and Burning Sensation. For those less inclined toward mixed drinks with cute names, there’s also a variety of beer and wine on tap. The bar food fares well. The sloppy joe sliders are billed as “cafeteria style, but better.” Although not a very high bar, they’ve succeeded. The chunky ground beef mixture contains flecks of red bell pepper and the sauce has notes of brown sugar and Worcestershire. The classic cheeseburger sliders require no adjustment. Three sliders arrive with sweet sauteed onions blanketed by a melted layer of cheddar cheese. Well-seasoned and topped with two pickles, the homey simplicity works well here. The Armitage pizza makes a case for what Uptown Social does best — bake fresh dough. The cracker thin crust is topped with green creme, fresh mozzarella, and big chunks of Grana Padano, but takes flight with the peppery arugula and bright lemon zest. Light and fresh, the super thin crust allows the toppings to take center stage. A big, beautiful space with four bars and a coveted rooftop deck, Uptown Social is bound to be slammed in the evening hours. But even if you don’t fancy yourself a social butterfly, it’s worth a stop for anything involving some fresh dough and melty cheese. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Winter 2019)
