Uptown Lounge In the late-night/early-morning hours, Lawrence Avenue can often resemble an urban ghost town. But behind the windows of this surprisingly chic, minimalist lounge, pretty people sit on comfy couches and in tall-backed booths under red lighting, sipping martinis. DJs (Fri, Sat) and karaoke (Sun) are a plus, but the late-night liquor license keeps us stumbling back, again and again.
