A shining example of architect John Eberson's renowned "atmospheric" style, (wherein domed, sky-painted ceilings and elegant interiors are meant to invoke a an outdoor, garden-like setting), the Uptown first opened its stately doors in 1928. Its meticulous restoration began in 1995, and a parade of different events, including concerts, weddings, graduations and galas have taken place since. When bigger (but not neccessarily mainstream) acts such as the Pixies or Slayer play Kansas City, it's usually going to be at the Uptown. The venue allows smoking, but only in the Nowhere Lounge, a space inside the building that acts as bar and welcome retreat from extra-packed, extra-loud shows.
