  • checking out some clothing and whatnot
  • Ask for one of the Mikes to help with piercing. Super helpful!
  • Buy yourself a new septum ring.
  • Here's a tip -- go to the fucking alley (yeah, they probably have a shirt that says that already)
  • I've had nothing but good experiences at the alley. & It's the staff at a punk rock store, what'd you expect? Go back to Bloomingdales.
  • And this place wonders why they don't make a profit? Zero customer service, employees are rude, rude, ruuuuude.
  • Touristy or not, this is one shop that this Chicago girl will always be going to. Not only can you find a nice variety of alternative styled clothing the prices are ridiculously low.
  • Who closes at 7:30 on a Monday?!
  • It's perfect for all those hard to find items we all love and as of recent my favorite tobacco shop has moved in there too! \m/ blue Havana rules
  • Exploring the city w/ friends 1st day w my drivers lic.. Coming to #TheAlleyChicago since they had the man getting electrocuted in the alley window, which freaked us out (1998.) We were impressed.
  • This place isn't what it used to be... But still had a decent collection of alternative apparel and accessories. Staff never was very friendly.
  • This place is awesome! They have something for everyone.
  • Clothes run small! Buy a bigger size if you are unsure. Exchanges only, no returns, and no returns or exchanges on discounted items.
  • One of the koolest stores ever.
  • Belmont & Clark if you dare
  • Got a Gr8t T-shirt......Free!!!!! Planning 2 return, 2 git a tattoo O_o
  • Rude rude rude
  • DONT GO HERE. They own the parking lot SCAM in front of Dunkin Donuts.
  • Its touristy and everything can be bought online. However you never find these selections in stores anywhere. Also body jewelry is great.
  • Its the old school version of the Topic. They try and copy the alley but dont succeed.
