A bar from the Alter nightlife crew, taking over the alley that once belonged to Parrot. It's a bare concrete and neon lighting sort of look, with space for a pop-up bar out front. Very multi-purpose, more of a platform than a definitive club or bar; the vibe of the night depends entirely on what they decide to put in it. Some nights it's a bartender guest shift with guests encouraged to bring their own vinyls for the open deck, other nights its a themed party with a visiting DJ. Either way, the drinks are mid-priced and pretty decent, and there's not a lot of places around town that have a drinking alleyway quite like this one.
