Alley Bar — located on 112 West Liberty St. — has been a part of Ann Arbor’s bar scene for more than 30 years, and has experienced various changes in ownership over its lifetime. The bar re-opened at the end of the summer after being acquired by the owners of BTB and Good Time Charley’s, who implemented several changes.

Now, I usually don't go to the Alley because of allegiance to Barbara (it used to be the old Babs' but some drama ensued), but, really, mainly because it's filled with uggos and the staff often make bullshit overpriced drinks. Dude, don't try to pass off a tonic water as a gin and tonic, yo! But I digress... (Sam S.)
