The Students Are Upon Us! Where Shall I Drink?!
Howdy everybody. You might have noticed that it has been awhile since my previous post. First off I would like to apologize for my absence. Today I wanted to address something that I have not touched on as of yet. Today I wanted to recommend a good bar for all of you folks whose idea of a good time does not include head rattling house music or thousands upon thousands of college students breathing down your neck. Given that Bloomington is a college town it can seem like a daunting task to find a bar to share a drink with friends that has not been completely overrun with students. These bars are very hard to come by but I know of one where you can spend time without waves of students.
The Alley Bar located at 210 West Kirkwood Avenue is a small little dive where everybody knows your name. Ok, not really..they won’t know you at all when you first arrive but they are very friendly and a few drinks later everyone will be best friends! This bar is busy on the weekends like any other bar but the atmosphere is a lot less hectic than the bars closer to campus. Who knows, you might even be able to go the whole night without having to sit through one Ke$ha song! For those of you who don’t know who she is…please for your sake keep it that way!
The Alley Bar offers a good selection of liquors to choose from but their selection of craft beers is what you need to focus on. They get new types in all of the time and it is very neat to try beers that you otherwise would have never even known about; peach beer anyone?
You can reach their website here.
