The Back Alley takes pride in having been voted the best rock bar in the whole of Western Canada. It’s a great place for fun, and because it’s on the outskirts of downtown, rarely does anything go wrong at Back Alley. Just about anything goes at the Back Alley, so leave your inhibitions at the door and get ready to let loose.
Come to party
It’s not just the presence of shooter girls or the good-looking bartenders that makes the Back Alley is the place to rock the night away. There are several theme nights, such as Ladies Nights, Band Night and Free Concert Fridays. Drinks are on the cheap side, which is one of the bar's most popular features. Loud rock music and dancing are just some of the nightly happenings at the Back Alley.
The Back Alley starts to groove about 9pm, and that is usually when the line-up starts to build outside. It’s all a giant party but there’s also a few spots where you can just sit and talk. The theme is about a back alley – and there's even a catwalk that leads nowhere. The Back Alley is a guaranteed good time in Calgary.
