Wreck: Uptown funked you up

Olivia Tsouprake

Uptown Upscale Lounge posted on Facebook on Sept. 27 that it would be its last night open.

“FINAL PARTY NIGHT AT THE ‘U’,” the status read. “WE ARE CLOSING OUR DOORS FOREVER AFTER TONIGHT!!!”

Uptown has been a go-to place for Quinnipiac students on Thirsty Thursday for the past two years. Just as it seemed to be getting even more popular, it shut down.

The QU community needs to takes a moment of silence to remember the good times there, even if we can’t actually remember them.

“It was definitely like a classier version of Toad’s,” sophomore Sabrina Sergio said. “[At Uptown] there was also more places to sit if you wanted a break to chill… You could dance or lounge depending on your mood.”

Although the club Toad’s Place has its own virtues, there was something nice about being able to go out to Uptown and not worry that your outfit would become so covered in slime to the point of being unwearable. Rest in peace, Uptown. You shall be missed.

On the bright side, at least there’s Box. Formally referred to as Box 63 American Bar and Grill, Box has a dance floor, perfect munching food and its own whiskey. Could it be the new official Thursday night spot for QU students?
