The Back Alley Is Coming Back To Calgary In Place Of Marquee


I have a feeling this is going to excite you. It’ll make you feel so stoked on nostalgia you won’t be able to fathom this news until you see it in person, for yourself.

Marquee is shutting its doors and it’s being replaced with a reimagined BACK ALLEY in all of its old school glory, with some new perks I am sure. This will be really cool to experience. If you’re anything like me, maybe you ended up in Calgary after The Back Alley was gone and it had already turned into Marquee. If this is the case, it’ll be a room full of people reliving their past and also people creating brand new memories in a place they’ve never been before… how awesome is that?

From what I’ve heard the $2 tequila shots will still exist… but there’s no word yet on Russian prince vodka. To quote Kendahl, a friend of the show… “they used to get up on the bar at midnight at throw napkins while you were making out with a stranger on the dance floor”. Well if that isn’t the most bizarre and confusing thing ever. We can only hope they bring back that tradition, too.

If the new and improved Back Alley is anything like the one I’ve heard described in stories time and time again, then I can only be excited to test it out. If you’re on the crew of people (like myself) that never got to do it firsthand… this is going to get wild.

More information will be released soon, and the night of the grand opening is to be announced, so keep your eyes peeled and I’m sure we’ll be seeing each other on the dance floor soon enough.
