The popular hot spot Wiseguys Comedy Club at The Gateway is growing and just opened The Lounge at Wiseguys, a bar and restaurant offers a wide variety of delicious appetizers and entrees and colorful, ice cold drinks in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The Lounge is located next to Wiseguys Comedy Club.
Oversized couches, bar stools, flat-screen TVs, a stage, and unique comedy memorabilia fill the Lounge that will open at 5 p.m. daily. This new Wiseguys expansion will be open to patrons aged 21 and older and is a great space to eat and drink, watch a game, and even hang out before and after comedy shows.
The Lounge will host live entertainment shows while the main stage at Wiseguys will continue to bring in national headlining comics every week. The Lounge is perfect for private parties and corporate events and is available for private rental year-round.
Wiseguys Comedy Clubs first opened in 2001 by comedian Keith Stubbs. In 2015 Stubbs moved his popular club to The Gateway where it has grown to be a staple of Salt Lake City’s nightlife. The club is nationally renowned by comics, talent agents, and the comedy industry as one of the top clubs in the nation. Keith Stubbs and Wiseguys have been featured on both local and national media and the club has received numerous awards over the years. s
Keith Stubbs continues to work hard bringing a wide variety of national-touring, well-known comedians to Utah who now consider Wiseguys as one of their favorite clubs in the country.
“As a comedian myself, it’s always been a priority to me that the club is comedian-friendly. Every decision I make – from the seating layout, to the sound and lighting and the rules of the club – are all meant to ensure every comedian has a great experience on stage and the show is the best it can be. It’s all about the show,” said Stubbs who is involved in every aspect of his three Wasatch front Wiseguys locations.
“Wiseguys Comedy Club has been a staple of entertainment at the new Gateway, we can’t wait to welcome the addition of The Lounge with that same relaxed, fun atmosphere that Wiseguys offers,” says marketing director Jacklyn Briggs. “The Lounge is just another addition to our growing roster of entertainment-driven merchants, creating a pedestrian-friendly district like no other.”
