The One-Up Restaurant and Bar is the initial tenant in the Third & Central redevelopment project. The concept envisioned diners setting near the large windows that overlooked one of Albuquerque downtown’s main street intersection and street scene. This new downtown dining and entertainment venue was focused on an upscale, sophisticated atmosphere that was a departure from the early redevelopment projects in downtown Albuquerque that included mostly bars that catered to the young crowd. In this case, the owner has adhered to the basic concepts and the restaurant & bar has evolved from the original concept of pool/billard emphasis to the current restaurant & bar facility that is striving for longevity and continual inspired menu creativity and urban sophistication.
