We've hosted the White House staff, every Fortune 500 company in town, doctors, lawyers, cartoonists, and bachelor parties. We've hosted over 300 events each year for the last 16 years at the Uptown Billiards Club. We love it and we do it very well. We treat each event like it is the most important night of the year, because we understand that to you, it is absolutely the most important night of the year. We have space for intimate gatherings and top-secret think tanks as well as space for 240 sales reps to go nuts after sitting in lectures all day. Just give us a call. We have projectors, screens, P/A systems and everything else you need.
- The Restaurant Writes...
Seldom finding restaurant descriptions compelling, I'll tell you an Uptown-shaping story:
As a young assistant manager at a 5-star Caribbean resort 20 years ago, when $1000/night was unheard of, I asked the resort owner why each year we failed to make Conde Naste's "Gold List" despite being 100% booked a year in advance. He replied, "Because we don't have a pool; 25% of the score is based on a pool." I retorted, "You've got 30 acres-why don't you build one?" To which he replied, "Because if I built one everybody would use it!" I failed to see the logic. "And?" I asked. "Because people tend to do what they are most familiar with and in our case, they'll miss the beauty. If all they remember is the pool, they’ll find one closer to home next year. Here, their memories should be of (pointing) THAT sun setting over THAT Caribbean ocean with their toes in the sand. I’m not here to give people what they're familiar with, Kent, I'm here to provide something they'll never forget."
