As I walked through the front door of the Back Alley on Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach I was greeted by the friendly staff. Soon I found out that the Back Alley was much more than just a café. In the gift shop I found some very cool paintings and prints done by local artists. There were also lots of books from local authors on Anna Maria Island.
There are necklaces and hand crafted jewelry hung throughout the Gift Shop. In the back of the gift shop they have a bar area where you can order snacks, sandwiches, pub pizzas, coffee, cold beer, or a glass of wine. The pub pizzas are $5.00 and the sandwiches are all around $7.00 they take cash or major credit cards and you can grab a table out back for your dining experience.
Live Music at The Back Alley
The Back Alley has live music every Friday night. You can catch local bands like: Firedoor, SR64, The Florida Mountain Boys, Human Condition and many more. You may have seen some of these bands at Anna Maria Island’s 10TH Annual Bayfest on Pine Avenue this past weekend.
The staff at the Back Alley is all about promoting local bands. They also champion local authors, artists and good causes like WildLife Inc. WildLife Inc is a nonprofit organization and runs solely on donations and volunteers. They help injured and orphaned animals return to the wild. Attend this fun event and help animals in need.
