The long awaited Uptown Arcade opened this past weekend with a soft launch after receiving licensing approval on Friday morning. The local owners are excited about the opportunity to add an arcade bar to the Broadway corridor just north of Lawrence (4830 N. Broadway). Currently, the bar is open Mon-Fri 6 PM - 2 AM and Sat-Sun 12 PM - 2 AM.

No food will be served by Uptown Arcade. However, patrons are welcome to bring in take out or order delivery. In fact, Lao Sze Chuan has offered to deliver for free (as they are located right next door).

The owner also tells us that Uptown Arcade would like to feature artwork from local artists. Any local artists interested in being featured should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
This e-mail address is also the best point of contact for inquiries about events (corporate or private).
On behalf of us at Uptown Update, welcome to the neighborhood, Uptown Arcade!
