Uptown / Downtown Bowling Green Reviews
Aug 04, 2007
Uptown / Downtown is, in my opinion, the best bar in Bowling Green, Ohio. Uptown is a club for 18 year olds and over. Cover charge is usually $3. For someone between the ages of 18+, it’s a GREAT place to dance and meet other locals. There is a DJ playing the latest dance hits and some oldie-but-goodies. The atmosphere is lively and around 11 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, it’s fairly packed. It’s a fun place to be in Bowling Green.
Downtown is 21 and over only. While there is music, it’s more of a traditional bar setting and not a dance club. The bar extends through 2 rooms and it’s usually never a problem getting a drink quickly. The bartenders are friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. I ordered a Harvey Wallbanger and mentioned that I’d never had one before. The bartender didn’t flinch, made one up, and made sure I liked it before turning his attention away. It was great. I highly recommend trying Mr. Wallbanger if you like sweet drinks. It was $2.50. They do offer drink specials on certain days as well. Corona and Cherry Bombs were the Friday night special.
Dan and I played a $0.50 game of foosball (I won by the skin of my teeth) and we met some new people. The décor is mostly sports and there are many nice flat-screen TV’s around the bar playing a variety of sports.
Uptown/Downtown is in the middle of the main nightlife scene of Bowling Green, making it very easy to go from one to the other. But I can almost promise you, that you’ll spend the majority of your time (if you’re 21 and older) in Downtown.
