We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Wasted Space

Getting extra schwilly



There’s a roomy downtown spot conducive to getting extra schwilly, hence its appropriate name: Wasted Space (342 S. State). Since taking over what was once Graffiti Lounge a little over a year ago, owners Doug Prescott and Bridgett Foster have finally found a proper niche for their baby: party bar. While Wasted Space lives up to the double entendre by offering $2 shots and $3 domestic steins, the bar has also turned heads by booking several relatively big names, like rapper One Be Lo, DJ Abilities and Dethrone the Sovereign. Weekends are hosted by DJ Squintz, who plays a blend of rock, dubstep and Top 40. Coming up, check out the End of the World Party on Dec. 21.
