Uptown in the News

The Uptown Lounge
If you were ever at a loss for where to hang out in the seedy area of Uptown before catching a concert at nearby Riviera or Aragon, you've finally got a place. First-time bar owners have completely renovated the Saxony, which took the term "dive bar" to new lows. In its place is a loungy room that's framed with tall-backed couches and a long wooden bar. But the best parts of the Saxony remain: cheap drinks and a 4 a.m. license. (Tip: Bring your ID. In an effort to keep out the neighborhood riffraff who usually don't carry any identification, bartenders are carding everyone.) 1136 W. Lawrence Ave. 773-878-1136
