Uptown Sports Club

It's not uncommon to find Aaron sitting at a booth having a nice afternoon meeting here. Uptown is our home base for great food, coffee, cocktails and community. Open early for coffee & breakfast, serving up a Texan take on Louisiana homestyle brasserie fare and slinging classic cocktails from lunchtime ’til late-night. No rush. No fuss. Come as you are daily or nightly
