Alibi is the first bar you see when you get to Rainey Street. This means there’s usually a good crowd of people who just happened upon the bar and are wondering whether to scope out the rest of the street first or just stay there for the next three hours. The backyard is great for playing giant Jenga or watching sports, and after a drink or two when your short attention span gets the best of you, keep bar-hopping down the street and remember you can always go back to Alibi.
