Hollywood Alley - Closed

2610 W. Baseline Rd.
Mesa, AZ 85202
It's been more than two decades since Hollywood Alley swung open its doors to the public, and since those late-80s days, the iconic club's stage has hosted sessions by some of the biggest names in the Valley's recent rock history. From gigs by punk legends the Sun City Girls back in the day, to the bands of the early-90s Mill Avenue scene like the Gin Blossoms, up to such modern-day scenesters as the Glass Heroes. The music may have changed over the years, but the decor definitely hasn't (countless classic movie posters and countless band stickers still cover the walls).
