Love Sunday afternoons from 2 to 6. There is this cool Texan Bbq guy there who serves good Bbq for only 3 bucks. Drinks are cheap, and there is always a live band (no cover, yeah !).

I enjoyed the Alley. There was no cover and live music. The crowd was an interesting mix of people and there was a great outdoor area if you're a smoker. Drink prices were reasonable too.

I went there as much as I could while living in CA. Not sure if the LoveRangers are still there, but if they are HEY GUYS!!!! Richie and band are WONDERFUL. They are the reason I went there. It is a very small space, but so much fun. Even if you can't dance, it is still fun to people watch. Ages 21-90 show up and no one feels out of place!!!!! I miss it so much since I have moved back to Kansas. Everyone should check out The Alley!!!!!

Pros: Great live music, friendly bouncers

Cons: small, gets crowded quick, bathrooms small

This place is the worst! Do not spend your money at this place, unless you like power hungry security guards that treat you like a second class citizen or rude and obnoxious staff, this is the place to go!

The "Alley" is a great little place. You can either park on the street, which is limited, or you can park in the alley - which has amble room.
The "Alley" looks small on the outside, but is very nicely done on the inside. They even have a piano and player for your enjoyment.
Food and drinks are reasonable.
