Alley Katz is not a sports bar, but rather a bar where people happen to watch sports. The real draw of this place is the bar itself, which has 27 beers on tap and serves more than 200 beers and ciders. For the restless types, there are two pool tables, a foosball table, a jukebox and several TV’s where you can watch your team of choice. Conveniently located downtown, this is a great place for anyone to stop in whether they are leaving work and want to have a brew and watch the game, or going out for the night. Alley Katz is definitely not a dive, and some of their beers can get a little pricy, but the place is generally packed so people must agree they’re worth the cost.
