Blues Alley closes

A longtime blues bar, The Alley, has closed its doors after eight decades as a Downtown watering hole.

The bar's former owner Red Goldberg said the bar is so old he can't say for certain when it opened, but he dates the bar back to the 1920s when it first came on the scene as the Valhalla on Washington Avenue.

It later moved into the first floor of the Lamoreaux Building at 15 N. Glenwood Ave., which now sits in the shadows of the Target Center and the 7th Street Ramp next to O'Donovan's Irish Pub, 700 1st Ave. N.
